3 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The role of artists, writers, poets, actors, and musicians have an enormous impact on society. Because of the special place they occupy in people's hearts and minds their influence is central. Artists shine light into the dark crevices of the human psyche. They question, nudge and agitate ... In times of crisis and war, great artists provide comfort, hope, inspiration and understanding."--Http://www.alternativeradio.org

Angela Davis shows the ways the wars on drugs and immigrants are tied to increasingly mobile and amoral transnational corporations.

Imperial democracy by Arundhati Roy ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
U.S. imperialism, like its predecessors, is based on the moral right to rule. In a newly packaged version of manifest destiny and white man's burden, America is delivering democracy to the benighted and bedraggled masses. The empire is rooted in the near-theological conviction that American values, whatever that might be, are good for the world. In fact, the Bush administration has declared, with a hubris that would make Roman emperors blush, that its vision for the rest of the planet is the only sustainable model. Emanating from Washington is a series of diktats telling other countries: Follow orders or else
Terrorism: theirs and ours by Eqbal Ahmad ( Recording )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Bezruchka examines reasons why the US currently ranks 27th in the health of its citizens, down from among the top 5 just 50 years ago.

On imperialism by Noam Chomsky ( Recording )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Earth democracy by Vandana Shiva ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Advocates of corporate driven globalization are like the missionaries of old. Convinced of their righteousness, they are full of good intentions to save the world. Instead of bibles they are waving so-called free trade agreements. The gospel they preach is, "Open your markets. Let us in." A recent UN study unequivocally states that globalization is creating a growing divide between rich and poor countries. Farmers in the developing world are particularly hard hit. They are facing not only having to compete with subsidized grain from the U.S. but also American corporations like Monsanto coming in and literally patenting their seeds. The planet is fast moving toward a choice-continue with rapacious predatory capitalism or develop a system of cooperation and collective action that protects the environment and prioritizes people before profits
American empire & corporate media by Anthony Arnove ( Recording )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Hermann Goering, second in command to Hitler said, "Naturally, the common people don't want war. It is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along. The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country." Today we see the patterns that Goering described replicated in the US invasion of Iraq and the war on terrorism. Corporate media have been instrumental in manufacturing consent for war. When it comes to the invasion of Iraq, US public opinion is radically divergent from the rest of the world. MIT professor Noam Chomksy says that this can on be explained by a massive propaganda campaign
Planetary casualties the hidden costs of war by Adrienne Anderson ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Direct human casualties and financial costs of wars are openly discussed in the media. Yet the war on the environment is rarely addressed. Sewer sludge leaks into our food and water supplies, uranium mining devastates reservations and bombing ranges litter the US and its territories. It is easier to gain support for war if the public believes the effects are confined to a war zone halfway around the world. In a live interview, Adrienne Anderson will discuss with David Barsamian the reality of war on people and the environment

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Democracy & the global economy by Vandana Shiva ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The mantra of free trade and open markets has widened the gap between rich and poor nations. Level playing fields don't seem very level to the have-nots. Democracy is weakened by powerful institutions such as the IMF, the World Bank and the WTO. The US largely dominates these organizations. The massive monopoly of resources by the US and a handful of other countries has created tremendous imbalance and inequality

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
