New Book Received: The Power of the Talking Stick: Indigenous Politics and the World Ecological Crisis. By Sharon J. Ridgeway and Peter J. Jacques, Paradigm Publishing, 2013; 210 Pages. Price €115.00, ISBN 978 1 61205 290 8

The Power of the Talking Stick makes the case that, reaching back to the beginning of the nation-state and all through the current period of corporate-led globalization, our governments and social institutions have been engaged in activities that will ultimately extinguish the world's ecological life support systems. This book offers an alternative, listening to indigenous leaders and others whose voices often go unheard in the din of contemporary culture. Their warning is stark, but their insights are firmly grounded in traditional knowledge and provide a way to see past the politics and rescue the earth.
