Globalizing Civil Society

Reclaiming Our Right to Power

by David Korten


Prompted by the United Nations Conference on Human Settlements, Korten's book indicts the world's governments for failing to address growing hunger, housing shortages, unemployment, poverty, human rights abuses, and environmental degradation. He examines the causes of this global crisis and offers fresh solutions reflecting sustainability, community, and equity—the only principles that can assure a healthy future for the world's people.
