    Check out and/or Order Walden from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Walden II by B.F. Skinner has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Scott Goode...and Scott has this to say about the book: "Walden II presents an idea of a different way of living; a breaking out of our prison if you will. It presents a community that resembles a tribal life style in a modern day setting. The individuals depend on the community for their survival and the community depends on the individuals for its survival. B.F. Skinner examines how to create a different civilizational system through different educational models, production models, governmental models,and relationships and interactions. Though this utopian community does not spit out the seed of the tree of right and wrong/who shall live and die, it does pose interesting ideas about different ways to live; none of them right or wrong, but what works for that group of people. "
    Check out and/or Order Walden II from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Walden Two by B.F. Skinner has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Mark Meritt...and Mark has this to say about the book: "This book and "Atlas Shrugged" are Bizarro-world versions of each other. They are virtual opposites, and both are interesting as much for what they have in common with Quinn as what they don't. Let me reiterate - this is *not* consistent with Quinn, but interesting food for thought."
    Check out and/or Order Walden Two from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • War Between the Pitiful Teachers and the Splendid Kids by Stanley Kiesel has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Laura Bouma...and Laura has this to say about the book: "This is an excellent book to give to young children or adolescents, to get them interested in some of Daniel Quinn's ideas. This book has a storyline common to many adolescent books (school bad, kids good) yet it manages to keep the plot original and interesting, and avoids stereotypes of evil teachers (despite the title, many of the teachers in the book are are on the side of the kids, and the real enemy is the _system_, not teachers or books or learning.) This book is very odd, and adults may not enjoy it, but I guarantee that any 12 year old who attends school will identify with it. It is a great book to lead into reading My Ishmael. This book is out of print, however."
    Check out and/or Order War Between the Pitiful Teachers and the Splendid Kids from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • War, Lies, and Videotape: How media monopoly stifles truth by Edited by Lenora Foerstel has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Eric Eyles...and Eric has this to say about the book: "An in depth look @ how "Mother Culture" is made manifest through use of the powerful media industry, and how we are manipulated and lied to in an effort to maintain our current social order. An eye-opening discussion about how economic interests drive modern journalism, and truth is a sometimes useful, always amorphous commodity. Please note: this book is currently available only through International Action Center, @iacenter.org."
    Check out and/or Order War, Lies, and Videotape: How media monopoly stifles truth from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Watership Down by Richard Adams has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Ben Verbeck...and Ben has this to say about the book: "Watership Down brings you inside the world of rabbits searching for a new home. The home that they once had was destroyed by man. I recommended this book because when i read it, I thought about how different the world would be had rabbits gained consciousness. Any animal for that matter. If a rabbit was able to communicate with us after gaining consciousness, we couldn't build a landfill over their homes. We couldn't pollute their rivers, and thanks to animal rights groups,the crooked politicians and hunters couldn't just mass exterminate the rabbits."
    Check out and/or Order Watership Down from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Way of the Peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Lloyd Beaton...and Lloyd has this to say about the book: "Read it and glean from it what you will"

  • We by Yevgeny Zamyatin has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Heidi Stults...and Heidi has this to say about the book: "Happiness and technology/industrial civilization. A very good read for those who like Quinn's books. "
    Check out and/or Order We from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • We by Yevgeny Zamyatin has been suggested by Ishmael Network member May Stark...and May has this to say about the book: "This book tells the story of a person who, fed up with just being an insignifigant part of a machine identical to all other parts and benifiting only a chosen few, discovers that he is an individual with the right to live a life for himself."
    Check out and/or Order We from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • We Wish To Inform You Tomorrow We Will Be Killed With Our Families by Philip Gourevitch has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Sasha Jesperson...and Sasha has this to say about the book: "Amazing account of the Rwandan genocide. Representing the ethnic divide between the Tutsi and Hutu tribes as caused by European influence, with a war funded by First world humanitarian missions. Must be read, to realise how devastating western culture can be on tribal networks."
    Check out and/or Order We Wish To Inform You Tomorrow We Will Be Killed With Our Families from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Weaving the Web : The Original Design and Ultimate Destiny of the World Wide Web by its Inventor by Tim Berners-Lee has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Jamie Myxter...and Jamie has this to say about the book: "Weaving the Web is an easy book to read to understand the origins of the World Wide Web. (The World Wide Web is one piece of what is known as the Internet.) It is written for ordinary readers, and not for technologists.

    The book relates to themes found in Ishmael in the following ways:

    (1) Quinn uses examples of change for us to look at, such as the dismantling of the former Soviet Union, or the incremental changes that occurred during the industrial revolution. This book chronicles the incremental changes that made the Web possible. Some ideas were new, some were quite old, but at a certain point and with the right combination, the ideas really took off into something that its inventor couldn't have imagined.

    (2) Weaving acknowledges politics as an important piece of change. Berners-Lee writes candidly about the politics at CERN, the difficulties in promoting a new idea, the difficulties of getting people on board with a new idea, the difficulties of dealing with people, and the ways in which he would "disguise" his project as one thing when he knew that it was, or that the potential to be, another thing. (Politics of everyday people and organizations...not global or national politics.)

    (3) Weaving made me realize that, to Berners-Lee, the rise of the Web seemed sluggish and slow. It seemed to take forever. It seemed, to use a common adage, to be like watching a pot boil. However, by NOT being Berners-Lee, we have the additional perspective that lets us see that, although it seemed TO HIM that nothing was happening, the rise of the Web was actually meteoric.

    (4) It's not done yet! We tend to think of the Web as the Web...it is what it is. Maybe someone will improve graphics a little, or tweak things to improve bandwidth...we'll be able to get MORE of it, but it'll be essentially the same thing we know today. According to Berners-Lee, this isn't the case at all. The Web is still very much in development, and being changed and driven by private interests (corporations, the development community) and public interests (standards bodies, W3C, etc.)."
    Check out and/or Order Weaving the Web : The Original Design and Ultimate Destiny of the World Wide Web by its Inventor from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Web of Life by Fritjof Capra has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Kobin Caddick...and Kobin has this to say about the book: "Capra and Quinn come to the same conclusion (that people must change or we will wipe ourselves out) by different methods: Quinn philosophically, Capra scientifically. Capra discusses systems thinking, Gaia and chaos theory, and presents some interesting views on the paradigm shift of values that must occur for people to change. He also suggests some ecological policies that will help sustain human life. The book is a bit dense but nonetheless just as poignant and significant as Ishmael."
    Check out and/or Order Web of Life from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Web site by n/a n/a has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Mark Sample...and Mark has this to say about the book: "This document gives very objective and clear data on the effects of overpopulation. Exploitive effects of the global economy and a global dependence on a shrinking resource pool are characterized and are particularly alarming. Carrying capacity and limits of sustainability are factually presented with very gloomy accuracy."
    Check out and/or Order Web site from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Welcome to the Monkey House by Kurt Vonnegut has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Deana Kanipe...and Deana has this to say about the book: "Welcome to the Monkey House is a compilation of Vonnegut's short stories that will spark the imagination and curiousity of any reader. Many of the futuristic hypotheses raised in the book involve what could happen to our society if we continue on the same path of destruction that we follow today. Some situations include overpopulation issues, governmental mind control, and other facinating sci-fi tales that could easily become reality. I highly recommend Harrison Bergeron... for obvious reasons."
    Check out and/or Order Welcome to the Monkey House from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • What Color is Your Parachute by Richard Nelson Bolles has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Nabil Asaad...and Nabil has this to say about the book: "This book takes you step-by-step through what you need to do to find your mission in life. If you're dissillusioned with what you're doing now and want to find something which sits better with your soul then this is the book for you."
    Check out and/or Order What Color is Your Parachute from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • What Dreams May Come by Richard Matheson has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Samuel Sampson...and Samuel has this to say about the book: "This is an amazing book that shows the importance of the human condition by taking a view of a suspected afterlife. Taking into acount what I learned from Ishmael and this book, I can successfully say that my perceptions of humanity have drasticaly changed for the better on all fronts. Here and now (Ishmael) and the here after (What Dreams May Come)."
    Check out and/or Order What Dreams May Come from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • What is a Law of Nature? by D.M. Armstrong has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Daniel Scott...and Daniel has this to say about the book: "A meaty book, Armstrong searches for a logically definitive way of explaining what a "Law of Nature" is. He develops a controversial topic on metaphysics and the philosiphy of Science."
    Check out and/or Order What is a Law of Nature? from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • What is Communist anarchism by Alexander Berkman has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Johnny Fowler...and Johnny has this to say about the book: "This book gives the vision of a huge anarchist movement in Russia before the 1917 revolution. I gives a template of social organization based around how people "make a living". Theoretical anarchism is very close New tribalism as an organizational technique."
    Check out and/or Order What is Communist anarchism from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • What is Communist Anarchism by Alexander Berkman has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Chris Clements...and Chris has this to say about the book: "This book discusses the evils and illogic of capitalism and "wage-slavery". It discribes how it is distructive and wasteful to produce more than we need to sustain life. It offers a clear alternative to our current way of life."
    Check out and/or Order What is Communist Anarchism from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • What's The Use of Big History? by David Christian has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Traci Robinette...and Traci has this to say about the book: "********** THIS IS NOT A BOOK, CLICKING THE AMAZON LINK WILL NOT WORK. THIS IS AN ARTICLE, AND THE FULL TEXT CAN BE ACCESSED HERE: http://worldhistoryconnected.press.uiuc.edu/3.1/christian.html ********** This is a really interesting article that has parallels to some of the concepts explored in Ishmael. For instance he talks at length about the agricultural revolution as it ultimately relates to the population explosion. He calls it "increasing control of energy" rather than "locking up the food," but it's the same concept. The really interesting bit is that he focuses on SUCH a large scale, but manages to arrive at many of the same points as Ishmael, and to portray the same overall attitude. It's fascinating, really. I mean, this guy is exploring the origins of the UNIVERSE (yep, as in all the way back to the Big Bang) as a means to get a better context for more current history and "see familiar things in new ways." "
    Check out and/or Order What's The Use of Big History? from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • When God Was a Woman by Merlin Stone has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Zoe Zuniga...and Zoe has this to say about the book: "With the rise of patriarchal religions the female deities where consistently swept away over and over but they kept stubbornly cropping back up! This "male" perspective has had much to do with the dominator or taker model. only by keeping the feminine side of ourselves powerless can we keep destroying."
    Check out and/or Order When God Was a Woman from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • When God Was a Woman by Merlin Stone has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Thom Parrott-Sheffer...and Thom has this to say about the book: "This book is a good companion piece to explore the rise of "Taker" cultures over "Leavers." It also explores the arena of the culture's attitude toward the divine and the relationship with Creation and Creator."
    Check out and/or Order When God Was a Woman from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • When Religion Becomes Evil by Charles Kimball has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Terril Tompkins...and Terril has this to say about the book: "This author/scholar presents a clear, realistic and objective summary of the "evil" side of the world's major religions without condemning religion itself. A must read for those who want to gain a clear understanding of what is going on in Mother Culture and in the Middle East in particular. An eye-opening world view that seems to relate distinctly to DQ's maxim: "There is no one right way to live.""
    Check out and/or Order When Religion Becomes Evil from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • When the Drummers Were Women by Layne Redmond has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Alan Willard...and Alan has this to say about the book: "It is a discription of an alturnative pre-historic culture or point of view"
    Check out and/or Order When the Drummers Were Women from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Wherever You Go, There You Are: Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life by Jon Kabat-Zinn has been suggested by Ishmael Network member keith gliesman...and keith has this to say about the book: "An introductory guide to meditation and relaxation."

  • Which Way for the Ecology Movement by Murray Bookchin has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Shehzad Nadeem...and Shehzad has this to say about the book: "Murray Bookchin, founder of Social Ecology and an anarchist, refutes the alarmist arguments of population explosions advanced by neo-malthusians such as Quinn and Erhlich and also offers a scathing critique of "deep ecology's" misanthropic character. Plus he publishes through an independent publisher (AK Press) rather than major corporations like many so-called "ecologists"!"
    Check out and/or Order Which Way for the Ecology Movement from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • White Noise by Don DeLillo has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Jennifer Small...and Jennifer has this to say about the book: "DeLillo, in a way different that Quinn, points out how man has found a way to destroy itself. It also points out some of the escapist attitudes that people develop in order to escape our culture."
    Check out and/or Order White Noise from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Why Big Fierce Creatures Are Rare by Paul Colinvaux has been suggested by Ishmael Network member eric schori-bragg...and eric has this to say about the book: "Ishmael mentions that nothing he talks about would particularly surprise anyone who studies living organisms. This book dramatically illustrates this point(it was published in 1977). It is astonishingly similar to parts of Ishmael and it is also a fascinating and readable book about ecology in general."
    Check out and/or Order Why Big Fierce Creatures Are Rare from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Why Nations Fail by Daron Acemoglu has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Robert Masding...and Robert has this to say about the book: "The concept of elites promoting extractive cultures which are destructive, as opposed to successful societies having inclusive systems are complementary to Daniel's Takers and Leavers concepts. The book has numerous historical examples."
    Check out and/or Order Why Nations Fail from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Why People Believe Weird Things : Pseudoscience, Superstition, and Other Confusions of Our Time by Michael Shermer has been suggested by Ishmael Network member John Willis...and John has this to say about the book: "This interesting book takes aim at many of the world strange beliefs and exposes them for what they are, fraudulent beliefs based on superstition rather than rational thought."
    Check out and/or Order Why People Believe Weird Things : Pseudoscience, Superstition, and Other Confusions of Our Time from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Why People Believe Weird Things: Pseudoscience, Superstition, and Other Confusions of Our Time by Michael Shermer has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Alvaro Cordova...and Alvaro has this to say about the book: "This book deals with the philosophy of science. It deals with superstitions and the like and I believe it ties in nicely to the idea that the more educated we are about reality the easier it will be to dispel the current mythology"
    Check out and/or Order Why People Believe Weird Things: Pseudoscience, Superstition, and Other Confusions of Our Time from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Wild At Heart by John Eldredge has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Court Donner...and Court has this to say about the book: "Whether or not God exists doesn't change how things are, and so in this way I regard religion as take-it-or-leave-it. I think many of the books recommended here take the leave-it path. Wild At Heart goes the take-it route, and yet is a fascinating book. Even if you'd prefer not to read about a Christian perspective, you can just skip to the next paragraph and find yourself reading ideas that don't sound too off-the-mark. WAH essentially provides an argument for trusting our instincts, for moving forward without a plan (and, similar to Quinn, argues that formulating a plan tends to be counter-productive)."
    Check out and/or Order Wild At Heart from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Wisdom from a Rainforest by Stuart Schlegel has been suggested by Ishmael Network member B. J. Kempner...and B. J. has this to say about the book: "A penetrating study of a society based on partnership rather than competition, Wisdom from a Rainforest also follows the spiritual odyssey of the author, anthropologist Stuart Schlegel. Schlegel spent two years living with the Teduray, a forest tribe in the Philippines. What he learned from them made him reexamine everything he assumed about Western culture and the so-called "verities" og human behavior. Tragically, horribly, the Teduray were massacred by bandits in the early 1970s, but Schlegel has preserved their example and their message, which is more urgently needed than ever. A brave, heartbreaking, inspiring and important work."
    Check out and/or Order Wisdom from a Rainforest from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Wisdom of the Elders by PeterKnudtson DavidSuzuki has been suggested by Ishmael Network member nomad sunago...and nomad has this to say about the book: "This book presents a synthesis of wisdom which combines indigenous culture and modern science. I'll quote from the back of the book: "Here are tales of profound human empathy with and respect for animals, landscapes, plants and natural forces vital to our survival. Each selection conveys a wonderful sense of the diversity and unity of indigenous peoples' intellectual and experiential insights into the workings of nature. Valuable in their own right, these vignettes also provide the foundations for a new global environmental ehtic. [new paragraph] Most important of all for the shared future of our planet, these 'sacred ecologies', when juxtaposed with the ideas of some of the wisest and most respected scientists of our time--Albert Einstein, Alan Guth, Santiago Ramon y Cajal, Loren Eisley, Paul Erlich and many more--hold much in common with aspects of modern science.""
    Check out and/or Order Wisdom of the Elders from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Wolf and Iron by Gordon R. Dickson has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Pax Rolfe...and Pax has this to say about the book: "It is a fiction that relates a collapse of society and one man's struggle, with the help of a wolf, to survive after the collapse. An intellegent, thouroughly researched read."
    Check out and/or Order Wolf and Iron from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Woman on the Edge of Time by Marge Piercy has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Gus Steeves...and Gus has this to say about the book: "Ah, so many things I could say about this book! In summary: Connie, a poor "insane" Chicana from NYC, finds herself mentally receiving communication, both in and out of a brutal "asylum where there isn't any," from a VERY Leaver society in 2137. They need her help. I won't go into why; read it. Piercy's depiction of their society should give us all kinds of ideas for what to do and show us just how mentally ill our society now is. A few points re: the difference: Connie realizes that our life has "a veneer of polite refusal to admit seeing" things like age, illness, etc; they see our time as "tragic and blind." She can't understand why nobody's in a hurry, why people only work 16 hrs a MONTH, why sex is so open, why death is casual, why people touch so much, why nobody has final decision-making power. Yet all is NOT perfect..."

  • Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History by Stephen Jay Gould has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Jonathan Cohen...and Jonathan has this to say about the book: "How some 530 million-year-old fossils from Canada may threaten the last major pillar of Taker culture."

  • Word Virus: The William S. Burroughs Reader by James Grauerholz, editor has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Bob Coleman...and Bob has this to say about the book: "Burroughs is a brilliant satirist, an experimental artist, a misunderstood genius, and a reformer whose books punch a hole in the Big Lie of Mother Culture. He attempts to blow up this cozy conspiracy and allow us to see the truth. He writes that in the beginning (of recorded history only) was the (written) word, a truism. And the word is a virus, the question being: Does the mind control the parasitic virus, or Does the virus control the host mind? He presents the Reality Studio, Reality Set, and Reality Film as a soft machine for Mother Culture to control her often unaware but restive charges yearning to be free and connect with others in spirit. He imagined a new kind of currency, underwritten not by gold or silver but by moral virtues and mental achievements. He wrote in his journal the day before he died, "What there is. Love.""

  • Writings on an Ethical Life by Peter Singer has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Lynne Reinecke...and Lynne has this to say about the book: "Simply put, this book will keep you thinking. The author does not ask for total agreement with his ideas but demands thoughtful questioning."
