Environmental awareness and social mobilization is a growing issue in Latin America. This book discusses how co-operative recycling practices have been increasingly used as a strategy to contest both the waste problem and urban poverty. Selective waste collection and sorting materials out of the garbage stream has become a widespread survival strategy for the economically excluded population. While severe and chronic occupational health problems and risks are very common among the recycling workers, thousands of people exclusively depend on accessing these resources. By examining experiences from Brazil and other Latin American countries, this book questions what can be done to improve the environment and livelihoods for these excluded citizens, examines the specific health and risk implications and looks at the many innovative recycling co-ops and associations which have recently emerged, creating an exciting new form of solidarity economy. In doing so, it uncovers the landscapes of despair populated by the urban marginalized, but also the landscapes of hope, where solidarity and collaboration make a pathway to a better way of life.

As such, they can be used either for the propagation of dominant ideologies or in the development of critical consciousness. "Crash Politics and Antiracism" does the latter, understanding the award-winning film "Crash" as an especially interesting pedagogical...

They owned considerable real estate in Jerusalem and its environs, as well as properties throughout the country, many of which they donated for the public's needs. Members of the elite Jerusalem Sephardic community, which peaked in the beginning of the twentieth century, the Valeros were extremely active in public life.

This book is aimed at addressing two common misconceptions. The first is that belief in G-d is purely a matter of faith and cannot be supported by rational arguments. The second is that rationality is incompatible with mysticism. The first part of this book argues that it is more rational to believe in G-d than not. The second part argues that instead of rationality being incompatible with mysticism, it ultimately leads to it. In the second part the author draws in particular on the literature of Chabad Hasidic philosophy and the teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe. Special attention is devoted to near-death experiences.
