Abstract:

"This collection of case studies provides a window onto citizen organizing for change that, when assembled together, give form and substance to the ideal of a new economy based on fairness and environmental sustainability. Occurring in response to the economically distorting effects of globalization, the environmental degradation brought about by industrial development, and a deep concern about climate change, these are stories of local citizens grappling with complex problems in their local communities, forging innovation, prising open cracks in the system and seizing opportunities to redirect economic life. They are challenging the short term focus in our political leadership by their commitment to take action now for future generations."--
