Your America: Democracy's Local Heroes

Добавить в корзину
Approaching the topic of civic activism on both a national and local level, Your America reveals essential lessons from twelve stories of ordinary citizens accomplishing extraordinary changes in their communities. Like Bill Graham, mayor of tiny Scottsbur, Indiana, who took on the telecommunications giants and wired his town for free wifi; or Katie Redford, a young law student who dusted off the Alien Tort Claims Act of 1789 and ended up changing the way American corporations behave overseas. Each profileis the result of a story on Now, the popular PBS show with a viewership of over 2? million people. For fans of the show, community activists, and the blogosphere, this book provides a blueprint for working together locally to create a better global commuity.
