  • There Is A Cure For Diabetes by Gabriel Cousens has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Michael Bedar...and Michael has this to say about the book: "At first you might wonder about how it relates to the vision of Daniel Quinn, but...it's basic, and thank you for giving me one moment of the benefit of the doubt. Simply: The thinking of our culture not only destroys the living planet, but a symptom shows up in the health of hundreds of millions of "takers:" Diabetes is right in front of our faces, but the relationship of this disease's spread to the culture that is destrying the living planet remains "hidden" for many people. What diabetes is a sickness that manifests from a cultural lifestyle that brings destruction of the ecosystem and disrespect for all life. This book is NOT an establishment, white-coat doctor's prescription - it is a cultural mirror: Choose death, or choose life - all life."

So what are you for? "What do we hope to achieve, in the long term, in working for social change? Michael Albert addresses the question in 'Thinking Forward'-the argument is lucid and wide-ranging, and should be considered very seriously by those who are dedicated to making the world more just and more free." - Noam Chomsky"

  • Transmetropolitan: Back on the Street by Warren Ellis has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Craig Maslowski...and Craig has this to say about the book: "Transmetropolitan is a comic, but don't disregard it for that fact alone. Transmet follows the story of Spider Jerusalem, outlaw journalist. Jerusalem exposes government corruption in his column "I Hate It Here". The Jerusalem character is a model for the person Quinn is trying to reach. Dissatisfied and angry with the world yet inexplicably attracted to the corrupt and hedonistic city. Darrick Robertson illustrates this comic and his vision is truly disturbing at times. A glimpse into a very possible future. "Back on the Streets" contains issues 1-3 of the comic. Back issues are available in trade paperback format up to issue 36. The series is nearing completion at issue 60. Transmet is a comic book, but it is definitely not your typical children's variety comic book. The subject matter is adult in nature and parental discretion is HIGHLY advised."

  • Triumph of the Nomads by Geoffrey Blainey has been suggested by Ishmael Network member nomad sunago...and nomad has this to say about the book: "For reasons of climate and geography, the Aboriginal people of Australia did not "fall" in with the agricultural revolution.
