Jerry Mander to speak at Powell's

Jerry Mander, editor of Paradigm Wars: Indigenous Peoples' Resistance to Globalization.
Best-selling author and cultural critic Jerry Mander, author of Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television and In the Absence of the Sacred has edited a new book, Paradigm Wars. He and coeditor Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, a leader in the global Indigenous Peoples movement and chair of the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, have gathered an impressive international roster of contributors to document the momentous collision of worldviews that pits the forces of economic globalization against the Earth's surviving Indigenous Peoples. Mander will discuss the process of creating this book, and the issues it addresses.

Tuesday, January 9th
7:30 pm
Powell's City of Books (Burnside)
