This review is from: A Better World is Possible (Paperback)
This book attacks vast themes which impact today's world and the future. The issue is how can wellbeing for all be achieved in a context where the world economy threatens to unravel, the developed and undeveloped worlds are in a state of tension and the prospect of climate change threatens to create its own turmoil? The message is that it is up to ordinary people to take a grasp on these problems and we are all urged to become activists. The question is `What is to be done?' and Mr. Nixon has provided us with an intriguing self-help manual drawing on the thought and experience of many others individuals and organisations for projects at the local, national and international levels. All activists will be aware of how challenging it is to draw attention to a cause; this book will help people with the articulate arguments they will need when their moment comes. A wide-ranging volume, yes, and inevitably sometimes controversial, but one that is inspiring yet also practical and thoroughly to be commended.
