Year 501: The Conquest Continues
South End Press
Devastating indictment of Western capitalism
This is a book by Chomsky that is probably even more scholarly than usual. At least in the way it is written. Chomsky wrote this book on the 500th anniversary in 1992 of the beginnings of the invasion of much of the world of what Adam Smith refered to, in a rather narrow context as "the savage injustice of the Europeans ("revealing himself to be an early practicioner of the crime of 'political ...
Radical Brewing: Recipes, Tales and World-Altering Meditations in a Glass
Great Book Full of Good Ideas and Inspiration
I think the great thing about this book is that it focuses on using more malts than I normally use to devlop rich and complex beers. It discusses some techniques about how to get richer beers. One particular technique was using the wort from half a batch of a big brew (using 20+ lb of grain) as the mash in water for the second half of grain. This is praticularly helpful for people using ...

Radical Nature: Rediscovering the Soul of Matter
Christian De Quincey
Invisible Cities Press
Radical Nature is radically enjoyable by H. Crowe
When I read this book, I rushed over to Amazon and bought Christian de Quincey's other book Radical Knowing. I totally agree with his witty critique of "physics envy" . . . Consciousness is not a sub-atomic virtual energy field although, as he correctly points out, it is the experiencer of energy, of vibrations, of fields, and waves. His slogan "Consciousness knows. Energy flows" says it ...
American Heroes: In the Fight Against Radical Islam
Thank God for good men like Oliver North. I wish we could have more men in power with his faith and his understanding of our military's capabilities and purpose. I am also very thankful for the work being done in Iraq and Afganistan. It is not a finished work nor a perfect work, but it is certainly not a flawed effort as our news outlets lead us to believe. Brining our troops home before ...
Radical Happiness: A Guide to Awakening
The closest thing to a "How to be Happy" book out there.
Of course we can't find the one book that will enlighten us after a reading. Eckhart Tolle's works come close. So do Zen books and Taoist works and Buddhism. If there is one book that has come closest for me, it would be Radical Happiness. With this work, Gina goes right into the root causes of suffering, which is the ego's false perception of the world. Through her words she explains ...
Radical Hospitality: Benedict's Way Of Love
Daniel O. S. B. Homan
Lonni Collins Pratt
Paraclete Press (MA)
An Unexpected Treasure
In Radical Hospitality I found a discussion of Benedictine monasticism and Christian spirituality that surprised me. I'm not exactly sure why but I expected this book to be a practical guide to implementing a monastic rule into one's life filled with specific suggestions and examples cross-indexed to specific rules from within the Benedictine tradition. That is not what this book is. ...
Take This Bread: A Radical Conversion
Food, eucharist, and conversion
This is a very well-written autobiographical piece by a journalist whose parents were socially active, atheist offspring of evangelical Protestant overseas missionaries. Sara shared her parents' leftist social activism, even to the point of a non-traditional college education based on social justice projects in different parts of the world. Her presumption growing up was that she also shared ...
The Radical Path
Father Peter Bowes
Father Peter Bowes
Couldn't put it down
I loved this book so much. It's a collection of spiritual teachings that are so real and honest. Not fluffy. True. Every time I finished one, I wanted to go right on to the next--but the teachings are so deep you could read each one several times and still get something new out of it. I highly recommend this book to anyone who's interested in the Truth teachings of all the world's religions, and ...
Howard Zinn: A Radical American Vision
Davis D. Joyce
Howard Zinn By Denis Mueller
Howard Zinn: A Radical American Vision Davis D. Joyce, Published by Prometheus Books By Denis Mueller I met Professor Zinn about eight years ago and began, with my Co-filmmaker Deb Ellis, a journey that would lead to a film about his life and the idea that the individual can make a difference. It was an amazing experience and one that has changed my life. I learned how to speak in public by ...
Radical Middle: The Politics We Need Now
Basic Books, 2004
Highly impressed, greatly needed
"Radical Middle" is several things: The title of Mark Satin's new book being reviewed here, the title of his newsletter, the title of his web site and the name of an exciting new political concept. I have followed Mark Satin for a long time, having been a charter subscriber to his previous newsletter, "New Options" and to his current "Radical Middle" newsletter. And I have read two of his ...
Mutual Aid: A Factor of Evolution
An early view of the evolution of cooperation
Peter Kropotkin is one of the most noteworthy anarchist thinkers over the last two centuries. As with other political thinkers, so, too, with Kropotkin--his analy¬sis of human nature is critical for understanding his overall philosophical position. For his view of human nature, "Mutual Aid" is a key for understanding his views. His work is a harbinger of more recent studies of sociobiology, ...
A Return to Healing: Radical Health Care Reform and the Future of Medicine
M.D. Len Saputo
This book will inspire you!!
I rarely comment on books I read. For one thing, there are just way too many out there, and for another, I'm very selective and maybe a bit over-critical. As an author of two books, I do appreciate the effort that it takes to bring a book to life. I am working on my third at the moment and I have been writing and researching it for nearly a year! A dear friend of mine, Len Saputo, has ...
Radical Amazement: Contemplative Lessons from Black Holes, Supernovas, And Other Wonders of the Universe
Amazing Metaphors, Undeniable Truths
Judy Cannuto tells the great epic story of our Universe while wedding the emergence of consciousness and divine awareness with the Christian tradition. She does this in a seamlessly inclusive and expansive way that does not desecrate but only broadens and deepens what was parochial faith. A must read for fundamentalists and that other end of the religious spectrum, atheists. Let's face it, ...
Igniting a Revolution: Voices in Defense of the Earth
A strong message to be found here!
In a time when apathy is no longer a luxury we can afford; this book delves into the deep social-environmental issues that involve us all. This book has an underlying message that hyper-individualism is not at all in our best interest, we should be practicing social responsibility for even the slightest hope of a sustainable planet. Much of the environmental struggle reminds me of the idea ...
Living My Life, Vol. 1
One of the most important books you'll ever read
This is the best autobiography I've ever read, because her life was lived with such commitment & independence. Certainly, she was hugely influential in her time, but her success was scratched out of nothing, with no support, and huge opposition. The difficulties and the times are conveyed amazingly well. The book will make you look carefully at your own life ... in ways that can only change it ...
Capturing Customers.Com: Radical Strategies for Selling and Marketing in a Wired World
Learning the Valuable Lessons
Forests have been felled to carry articles and books analysing the Internet Boom and its Bust from every conceivable angle. This book offers far more than simple analysis, breaking down cases and examples into straightforward lessons for business owners and executives. George Colombo has an engaging, direct style that is short on jargon and long on lessons that can be applied to nearly any ...
A very good personal develpment aid. Integrates a psychodynamic, buddhist and humanistic approach. As a psychiatric nurse I work hard to provide groups for people who are looking for ways forward and feel desolate and lost. This CD helps me live and helps me help others too.
Innovate the Future: A Radical New Approach to IT Innovation
Don't miss this opportunity to understand what really is innovation !
I'm going through a second reading of this book and I think it deserves to become a reference for the following reasons. Firstly it is putting back the term innovation in its true place. Innovation has become a buzzword and is too often misused. David Croslin reminds us what can be qualified as an innovation in the world of business and companies and that innovation isn't spontaneously ...
Economic Democracy: The Political Struggle of the Twenty-First Century, 4th Edition, cloth
Institute for Economic Democracy
Review of Economic Democracy: The Political Struggle of the
A professor of economics once told me that "mainstream economics is 95% ideology and only 5% social science." This wonderful book by J.W. Smith shows why that is true. I found it utterly complelling and could not put it down. By exposing the macro-economic mechanisms of the past five centuries, Smith blows neo-liberal ideology right out of the water. This book should be required reading ...
