ggf. zzgl. Versand

In recent years, American shoppers have become more conscious of their food choices and have increasingly turned to CSAs, farmers' markets, organic foods in supermarkets, and to joining and forming new food co-ops. In fact, food co-ops have been a viable food source, as well as a means of collective and democratic ownership, for nearly 180 years.In Food Co-ops in America, Anne Meis Knupfer examines the economic and democratic ideals of food cooperatives. She shows readers what the histories of food co-ops can tell us about our rights as consumers, how we can practice democracy and community, and how we might do business differently. In the first history of food co-ops in the United States, Knupfer draws on newsletters, correspondence, newspaper coverage, and board meeting minutes, as well as visits to food co-ops around the country, where she listened to managers, board members, workers, and members.What possibilities for change-be they economic, political, environmental or social-might food co-ops offer to their members, communities, and the globalized world? Food co-ops have long advocated for consumer legislation, accurate product labeling, and environmental protection. Food co-ops have many constituents-members, workers, board members, local and even global producers-making the process of collective decision-making complex and often difficult. Even so, food co-ops offer us a viable alternative to corporate capitalism. In recent years, committed co-ops have expanded their social vision to improve access to healthy food for all by helping to establish food co-ops in poorer communities.

Jim Thurman never thought he'd find himself at the center of an international plot to control America's oil market. It's 1990 and the mindset of the global giant Titan Oil is that terrorism only happens overseas. Protecting its people and flagship refinery in Grainger City is the last thing to be concerned with, even though the refinery supplies the largest daily percentage of gasoline to the nation. But when a terrorist group attacks the refinery to destroy it and unleash a lethal chemical, it's up to Thurman to stop them. Thurman, former Marine and Vietnam veteran, had left police work for better pay in Titan Oil's refinery security. That was when he had a wife and son. When they died, so did his sanity. To retain what's left, he decides to leave it all behind and start a new life without the scars. He'll resign and say goodbye to the refinery, but more importantly, to his fellow veterans working in the refinery, the 'War Dogs.' His departure is delayed when a rogue black ops mercenary, Adam Murdock, attacks the refinery with a team of terrorists known as the 'Serpent and the Sword.' Their stated sympathies are with the Middle East and unless their demands are met they will destroy the refinery and release its stockpile of lethal hydrofluoric acid on the surrounding population. Yet Murdock intends to destroy the refinery regardless of the demands. That is what his employer paid him to do. The Director of the CIA knew, yet hid the attack information in hopes of elevating his agency's future power. Venezuela wants to leave OPEC and be America's primary supplier. Hiring Adam Murdock was the answer. Lay blame on the Middle East, turn America against OPEC, and Venezuela reaps the oil rewards. The Director never counted on Alexandra McCall, an agent within his agency, leaking the information to the National Security Council. With terrorists slaughtering employees and setting explosives to destroy the massive refinery, Jim Thurman realizes he must fight alone. But his blooded brothers, the War Dogs, choose to make the last stand with him-even at the cost of their lives for an ungrateful corporation... A rogue black ops agent. A ruthless terrorist group's takeover of a refinery. An intelligence agency director that knows the truth but hid the report. The global oil giant that believes everything is second to profit. A country wanting to break away from OPEC and take America's oil market with it. The potential release of a lethal chemical on a city - and one man with a handful of Vietnam veterans to make a last stand against the insanity and prevent doomsday. STEEL JUNGLE is the nightmare no one wants to consider. Reality is laid bare in this raw-nerved, fast-paced, hard-hitting thriller.
