The prison industrial complex by Angela Y Davis( Recording )

2 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Angela Davis shows the ways the wars on drugs and immigrants are tied to increasingly mobile and amoral transnational corporations. She argues that the fear of crime, and the fear of young people of color in particular, are being manipulated and exploited to create one of the fastest growing and most profitable industries--the prison-industrial complex

Noam Chomsky draws a contrast between the rhetoric and the reality of US foreign policy.

In the second lecture, he focuses on the motives and consequences of US Iraq policy
Artists in a time of war by Howard Zinn( Recording )

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

In a speech given one year before his assassination, Dr. King speaks out against the war in Vietnam and calls for the people of the United States to embrace a "revolution of values" that places greater importance on social and spiritual well-being than on material gain
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
On imperialism by Noam Chomsky( Recording )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Our fingers will be in every pie,' declared Sen. Robert Taft. 'Our frontiers today are on every continent,' announced JFK. And indeed it has come to pass. In mainstream media and scholarship it has been rare to find the noun imperialism preceded by the adjective American"--Website
From the womb to the tomb by Stephen Bezruchka( Recording )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The United States, the richest country in the world, currently ranks 27th in the health of its citizens. Lagging behind not only most of the rich countries, but a few poor ones as well. Fifty years ago, the US was among the top five. What happened in the past five decades to cause this decline? Bezruchka explains that an increasing stratification between the rich and the poor plays a major role. Life spans and infant mortality rates depend very much on the hierarchal structure of a society. And new research shows that half of what influences our health as adults is largely determined before the age of five. What can we learn from other countries whose citizens live longer and healthier lives?"--Publisher
Stuffed and starved by Raj Patel( Recording )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stuffed and starved seems like such a paradox. There's so much food. How can there be hunger and obesity? In supposedly the world's wealthiest country, tens of millions of Americans are hungry. With the greatest economic collapse since the Great Depression those numbers will certainly increase. Issues of race and class are factors linking diet with cancer, diabetes and heart disease all of which are much higher among African Americans and Latino Americans. Food's also a global issue. There are connections between famine in Africa and coffee prices at Starbucks as well as how biofuels made from corn in Iowa drives up tortilla prices in Mexico. In the U.S., the popularity and growth of farmers' markets and CSAs, community supported agriculture are indications of new thinking about food. But few among the poor can afford those options. "--Publisher
Globalization & terrorism by Arundhati Roy( Recording )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A writer's place in politics by Arundhati Roy( Recording )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What role should writers play in society? Are they merely disengaged artists? In this interview Indian author Arundhati Roy discusses the political situation in India and in particular international commerce and the necessity for authors to use their skills to raise public awareness
Health & wealth by Stephen Bezruchka( Recording )

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

"Health and longevity are based upon factors we can all acknowledge: genetics, lifestyle and luck among them. They are also largely taken for granted. But as Stephen Bezruchka explains, social class has a far more profound effect in the U.S. than we realize, in ways we wouldn't guess, even for the many of us who consider ourselves middle class."--Publisher
Wars, bailouts & elections by Noam Chomsky( Recording )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the economic meltdown the term "in history" is routine. E.g., the biggest bailout in history, the largest bank failure in history, the greatest corporate collapse in history, and the stock market's worst week in history. There are more in histories on the horizon because the fundamental issue is not being addressed. The so-called free market is not free. Washington has forever been intervening on behalf of corporations. Sometimes with direct cash but more often through the tax code. And don't forget all those lucrative government contracts secured by lobbyists. Can anyone see the dots much less connect them? The political class votes for Wall Street while invoking the name of Main Street. Instead of buying toxic assets with taxpayer money why not give the money directly, at no or low-interest, to homeowners who are in danger of foreclosure? "--Publisher
The cornification of food by Michael Pollan( Recording )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The elephant inside our food system and even beyond is corn. Its presence is pervasive and dominant. It is an integral part of industrialized agriculture and the industrialized food chain. Processed food relies heavily on corn. Take a look at any wrapper or can and see for yourself. Cows fatten up on corn. It contributes to obesity in humans. And growing it? Not so good. It consumes prodigious amounts of fossil fuel energy. And corn turns out to be a major reason why farmers in Mexico go broke and migrate to the U.S. Under NAFTA, American taxpayer subsidized corn is dumped in Mexico at below market prices. Mexican farmers can't compete. More than two million of them have been thrown off the land "--Publisher
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
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
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
Race & class in public education by Jonathan Kozol( Recording )

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

Public schools are a political and social battleground infused with issues of race and class. Kozol addresses the inequalities in American education, poses possible solutions, and questions the role of business and economics in education
