♥ Book Title : Hope's edge
☯ Full Synopsis : "Hope's Edge follows the author of the classic Diet for a Small Planet and her daughter as they travel the world, discovering practical visionaries who are making a difference in world hunger, sometimes one village at a time. Thirty years ago, Frances Moore Lappé started a revolution in the way Americans think about food and hunger. Now Frances and her daughter, Anna, pick up where Diet for a Small Planet left off. Together they set out on an around-the-world journey to explore the greatest challenges we face in the new millennium. Traveling to Asia, Africa, Latin America, and Europe, they discovered answers to one of the most urgent issues of our time: whether we can transcend the rampant consumerism and capitalism to find the paths that each of us can follow to heal our lives as well as the planet. Featuring nearly seventy recipes from celebrated vegetarian culinary pioneers-including Alice Waters, Mollie Katzen, Laurel Robertson, Nora Pouillon, and Anna Thomas-Hope's Edge highlights true trailblazers engaged in social, environmental, and economic transformations."Article| Frances Moore Lappé, Anna Lappé| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : EcoMind
☯ Full Synopsis : "In EcoMind, Frances Moore LappÑa giant of the environmental movementÑconfronts accepted wisdom of environmentalism. Drawing on the latest research from anthropology to neuroscience and her own field experience, she argues that the biggest challenge to human survival isnÕt our fossil fuel dependency, melting glaciers, or other calamities. Rather, itÕs our faulty way of thinking about these environmental crises that robs us of power. Lapp dismantles seven common Òthought trapsÓÑfrom limits to growth to the failings of democracyÑ that belie what we now know about nature, including our own, and offers contrasting Òthought leapsÓ that reveal our hidden power. Like her Diet for a Small Planet classic, EcoMind is challenging, controversial and empowering."Article| Frances Moore Lappe| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Democracy's Edge
☯ Full Synopsis : "Three out of five Americans, both Republicans and Democrats, feel our country is headed in the wrong direction. America is at the edge, a critical place at which we can either renew and revitalize or give in and lose that most precious American ideal—democracy—and along with it the freedom, fairness, and opportunities it assures. Democracy’s Edge is a rousing battle cry that we can—and must—act now. From Jefferson to Eisenhower, presidents from both parties have warned us of the danger of letting a closed, narrow group of business and government officials concentrate power over our lives. Yet today, a small and unrepresentative group of people is making vital decisions for all of us. But this crisis is only a symptom, Lappé argues. It’s a symptom of thin democracy, something done to us or for us, not by or with us. Such democracy is always at risk of being stolen by private interests or extremist groups, left and right. But there is a solution. The answer, says Lappé, is Living Democracy, a powerful yet often invisible citizens’ revolution surging in communities across America. It’s not random, disjointed activism but the emergence of a new historical stage of democracy in which Americans realize that democracy isn’t something we have but something we do. Either we live it or lose it, says Lappé."Article| Frances Moore Lappe| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Getting a Grip 2
☯ Full Synopsis : "In Getting a Grip 2, Frances Moore Lappé, author of the groundbreaking Diet for a Small Planet, speaks to everyone distressed by the state of our world. In a vibrant, intimate voice, she challenges us to re-examine outdated assumptions about who we are and how the world works. She then weaves surprising facts and stories of courage into a novel narrative of meaning and action. Drawing on breakthroughs from neuroscience to anthropology, Lappé offers us a way of seeing possibility based not in wishful thinking but hard evidence. Getting a Grip 2, thoroughly rewritten for this moment, shows us how reframing the very meaning of democracy, power, fear, courage, and even hope itself, can free us to create the lives and the world we really want. Lappé's startling message leaves readers feeling liberated and courageous."Article| Frances Moore Lappé| Statement ..."
