Specifically designed to reach people who normally would not consider themselves activists, The Better World Handbook is directed toward those who care about creating a more just, sustainable, and socially responsible world but donandrsquo;t know where to begin. Substantially updated, this revised bestseller now contains more recent information on global problems, more effective actions, and many new resources.

The definitive guide for people wanting to make a positive difference in the world.

Kim Smith, March 7, 2014 (view all comments by Kim Smith)
Do you get overwhelmed by bad news? Do the crises in the world make you feel rather pessimistic and cynical? As a sociology professor, I have found no other tool that offers more hope or empowers students as effectively to realize that it truly is possible to make a difference. "The Better World Handbook" not only explores the core foundations of social problems but it also helps readers discover their own thought traps that keep them from engaging in solutions. Plus, each chapter has a great summary of solutions and clear and easy ways to create changes in your life and in your communities. Take a chance. Learn how to turn cycles of cynicism into cycles of hope. I promise you won't regret it.
