People these days almost crave information that helps them to make sense of the world, and the New Internationalist magazine does that brilliantly.
I do enjoy your magazine - it provides a good balance to a lot of the right-wing / conservative and pro-big-business-dominated media.
New Internationalist weighs the world on the scales of justice. By tapping into a vast global network of activists, the compassionately written and tightly edited magazine breathes life into the stories of people who are working to build a better planet.
If you would like to know something about what's actually going on, rather than what people would like you to think was going on, then read the New Internationalist.
Divided by geographical region, the Barefoot World Atlas looks at the way in which communities and cultures across the world have been shaped by their natural environment, and at the ideas and initiatives which are shaping the future. An atlas for the twenty-first century, it shows how all parts of the planet are interconnected and looks at the challenges which face us all in creating a sustainable future.
- Introduction includes the story of the solar system and the history of map-making.
- Maps of regions and oceans bring faraway places to life
- Illustrated geographical and architectural features
- Information about people plants and wildlife, from oil fields to Buddhist monks to the Amazon rainforest.
- Fold-out booklets reveal fascinating facts about each region.
