Environmental Ethics and the Global Marketplace (Paperback, New): Dorinda G. Dallmeyer, Albert F. Ike Environmental Ethics and the Global Marketplace (Paperback, New)
Dorinda G. Dallmeyer, Albert F. Ike; Foreword by Andrew Young
R550 Discovery Miles 5 500 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

In Environmental Ethics and the Global Marketplace it is argued that the health of the environment is inextricably linked to the health of the economy, economic strength depends on the preservation of environmental values, and, ultimately, economic and environmental sciences must merge more completely if we are to arrive at ethically justified principles as the basis for national and international environmental policy. This cross-disciplinary volume brings these critical ethical considerations into the policy process, enabling environmental ethics to move beyond academic venues into domestic and international decision making.

Breaking Ground - My Life in Medicine (Paperback): Louis W Sullivan, David Chanoff Breaking Ground - My Life in Medicine (Paperback)
Louis W Sullivan, David Chanoff; Foreword by Andrew Young
R479 R380 Discovery Miles 3 800 Save R99 (21%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

While Louis W. Sullivan was a student at Morehouse College, Morehouse president Benjamin Mays said something to the student body that stuck with him for the rest of his life. The tragedy of life is not failing to reach our goals, Mays said It is not having goals to reach. In Breaking Ground Sullivan recounts his extraordinary life beginning with his childhood in Jim Crow south Georgia and continuing through his trailblazing endeavors training to become a physician in an almost entirely white environment in the Northeast, founding and then leading the Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta, and serving as secretary of Health and Human Services in President George H. W. Bush's administration. Throughout this extraordinary life Sullivan has passionately championed both improved health care and increased access to medical professions for the poor and people of color. At five years old, Louis Sullivan declared to his mother that he wanted to be a doctor. Given the harsh segregation in Blakely, Georgia, and its lack of adequate schools for African Americans at the time, his parents sent Louis and his brother, Walter, to Savannah and later Atlanta, where greater educational opportunities existed for blacks. After attending Booker T. Washington High School and Morehouse College, Sullivan went to medical school at Boston University he was the sole African American student in his class. He eventually became the chief of hematology there until Hugh Gloster, the president of Morehouse College, presented him with an opportunity he couldn't refuse: Would Sullivan be the founding dean of Morehouse's new medical school? He agreed and went on to create a state-of-the-art institution dedicated to helping poor and minority students become doctors. During this period he established long-lasting relationships with George H. W. and Barbara Bush that would eventually result in his becoming the secretary of Health and Human Services in 1989. Sullivan details his experiences in Washington dealing with the burgeoning AIDS crisis, PETA activists, and antismoking efforts, along with his efforts to push through comprehensive health care reform decades before the Affordable Care Act. Along the way his interactions with a cast of politicos, including Thurgood Marshall, Jack Kemp, Clarence Thomas, Jesse Helms, and the Bushes, capture vividly a particular moment in recent history. Sullivan's life - from Morehouse to the White House and his ongoing work with medical students in South Africa - is the embodiment of the hopes and progress that the civil rights movement fought to achieve. His story should inspire future generations - of all backgrounds - to aspire to great things.

Witness to Change - From Jim Crow to Political Empowerment (Paperback): Sybil Morial Witness to Change - From Jim Crow to Political Empowerment (Paperback)
Sybil Morial; Foreword by Andrew Young
R349 R285 Discovery Miles 2 850 Save R64 (18%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

From her unique vantage point in New Orleans, Sybil Haydel Morial's life spans one of the most critical periods in our country's history. In this remarkable memoir, Morial chronicles her life as both witness to and catalyst for sweeping changes--desegregation, the end of Jim Crow, and the fight for voting rights. These changes transformed the nation during her lifetime. Morial's story is welcome inspiration for the struggle for political empowerment that continues. As Ambassador Andrew Young, a childhood friend and later Sybil's prom date, relates in his foreword: "It is doubtful that New Orleans could have produced two mayors with the dynamic, creative, and visionary leadership of 'Dutch' and Marc Morial without a wife and mother of Sybil's loving strength, intelligence, and moral courage. But the life she lived in the crucible times and her perception of the civil rights movement in New Orleans goes far beyond that."

Born into a blue-collar family in the Jim Crow South, Herman J. Russell built a shoeshine business when he was 12 years old--and used the profits to buy a vacant lot where he built a duplex while he was still a teen. In the ensuing 50 years, Russell has continued to build and develop businesses, amassing one of the most influential and profitable minority-owned business conglomerates. In Building Atlanta, he shares his inspiring life story, revealing how he overcame racism, poverty, and a debilitating speech impediment to become one of the most successful African American entrepreneurs, Atlanta civic leaders, and unsung heroes of the civil rights movement. Not just a typical rags-to-riches story, Russell achieved his success through focus, planning, and humility and he shares his winning advice throughout. As a millionaire builder before the civil rights movement gained impetus and a friend of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Ralph Abernathy, and Andrew Young, he quietly helped finance the civil rights crusade, putting up bond for protestors and providing the funds that kept King's dream alive.Here he provides a wonderful, behind-the-scenes look at the role that the business community--which included black and white individuals working together--played in Atlanta's peaceful progression from the capital of the racially divided Old South to the financial center of the New South.
