An urgent look at our world's looming crises and what we must do to avert them. In this book the author and Air America host looks at the deteriorating state of our planet, where the dynamics of environmental, economic and population change are boiling over the limits within which society can function. He busts the myths and ideologies of religious fundamentalism, capitalism run amok, male domination, and militarism that are draining our world of its natural and human resources and engendering the suffering of millions for the benefit of the few. No mere jeremiad, this book examines cultures that have thrived, from the mother city of Caral, Peru, to modern Denmark, and targets five areas of policy (national, religious, economic, corporate, and environmental) for specific and immediate reform. It illustrates the mistakes we have made, as a culture, as a country, and as individuals, and provides the inspiration and motivation readers are looking for to build a better, more sustainable world for all. Part prophecy, part call to arms, part policy prescription, this is the wake-up call our society so badly needs.… (mer)

This is a must read for progressives and liberals that are concerned about the direction our democracy is headed in and should be required reading for conservatives. Mr. Hartmann pulls material from some of his other books but he puts it all together so the reader gets a very comprehensive view of what's happening in our world and in the American democracy. Mr. Hartmann knows history and his book is a refreshing read for anyone that feels they are not getting the whole truth when reading most contemporary writers of political commentary. His description of corporatocracy and its impact on our world, and the gradual movement to the right of our democracy are both a wake up call and a real insight into how it all came about. This book is a serious work about a serious issue in our time. ( )
