  • The Bleeding Edge by Bob Hughes

    Capitalism likes us to believe in the steady, inevitable march of progress, from the abacus to the iPad. But the historical record tells of innumerable roads not taken, all of which could have led to better worlds, and still can. We live in a world mad drunk on technology and political stupidity. Bob Hughes’ new book says more about this poisonous combination – its causes, consequences, and possible cures – than anything I have previously read. This is an ambitious and important book. - Annie Bonny, Pirate blog. Hughes nails inequality to the wall with precision and passion. He weaves together multiple strands to make the case against inequality, from economics through anthropology; from evolutionary theory through social epidemiology. Then, once he has constructed his airtight logic, he colors it in with the emotional dimensions of life lived under oppressive hierarchy - or empowering egalitarianism. Hughes' book dares us to stop begging for half-measures and instead demand our human birthright: full social and economic equality! - Deborah S. Rogers , PhD President, Initiative for Equality Affiliated Researcher, Stanford University, Institute for Research in the Social Sciences. Learn More

And that's because journalist and mum of two Zion Lights has turned the cliched hippy dippy image of green mama mantras on its head and instead rammed her brilliant book with heaps of common sense and evidence-based facts...If you're looking for reassurance that you are doing the right thing, it's all here.' - Gurgle Magazine
