This book introduces readers to the concepts of sustainability and philosophy of slowness for the management of public entities such as cities or regions. While many urban communities face economic challenges that clearly show the limitations of growth and ever-increasing speed, this book explores an alternative, thought-provoking standpoint in five chapters. The first chapter explains the importance and essence of slowness, smallness and sustainability for public organizations, while the second addresses the concept of “slow life” in an emotional society. Chapter three examines the issue of “slow management” and presents arguments for the value of small businesses as the true foundation of the economy. Chapter four rounds out the coverage with a focus on agriculture. Finally, in chapter five, the authors discuss the overall benefits of a “slow and curvy” management style in order to provide happiness, economic and social sustainability.

A thousand years ago in a settlement of Greenland, a warning comes from Norway. Magda, the wise woman of the tribe remaining in Norway, sends a message to Bjorn, the tribal leader, that the main part of his people who remained in Norway has been massacred by a new enemy named Wabrok. This renegade Norseman intends to eliminate the independent jarls and turn their clans into one vassal state under his total control. Magda, with some of the refugees, mostly women and children who survived the devastation of their settlements, have fled northward. Bjorn confirms to Magda he will set out with a force of fighting men (The Skarl) and come to the rescue in forty days. His men must travel over the ice cap by skis and snowshoes to reach their ship on Greenland’s east coast, then by sea with winter almost upon them to cross the ocean. His fighting men are driven by an overwhelming love for freedom for their families, and a hatred of their enemies. Bjorn’s group sets out to make the almost impossible journey within the forty days. Magda continues north to reach the Caves of Refuge. Her group’s journey is also by foot, skis, and snowshoes. Magda and the group are hotly pursued by Wabrok and his men. With a woman’s instinct and subterfuge, Magda keeps the group alive. The journey of The Skarl is a journey not for the youngest and fittest, but on this impossible trip, enduring courage is needed to continue when all is against them.
Poverty and inequality are at record levels. Today, forty-seven million Americans live in poverty, while the median is in decline. The top 20 percent now controls 89 percent of all wealth. These conditions have renewed demands for a new economic Bill of Rights, an idea proposed by F. D. Roosevelt, Truman and Martin Luther King, Jr. The new Economic Bill of Rights has a coherent plan and proclaims that all Americans have the right to a job, a living wage, a decent home, adequate medical care, good education, and adequate protection from economic fears of unemployment, sickness and old age. Integrating the latest economic and social data, Ending Extreme Inequality explores each of these rights. Each chapter includes: an analysis of the social problems surrounding each right; a historical overview of the attempts to right these wrongs; and assessments of current solutions offered by citizens, community groups and politicians. These contemporary, real-life solutions to inequality can inspire students and citizens to become involved and open pathways toward a more just society.

The focus of this book, Holistic Health, is on the big picture. It is on understanding all of the many facets of our lives that need to be taken into consideration if we are to experience an overarching sense of health and happiness. Holistic Health is the foundation upon which everything else I have been teaching is built. In other words, each of the topics I have covered in other books, like Living a Peaceful Life, Anger Work: How To Express Your Anger and Still Be Kind, Meditation for Health and Happiness, How to Live a Positive Life, and so on, are a piece of the puzzle. Holistic Health, is a look at the puzzle box lid. It shows you the picture of the whole puzzle at once.
