Summary

Save the Humans? argues that individual self-interest depends on common preservation - cooperation to provide for mutual well-being. As world leaders fail to cooperate to address climate change, nuclear proliferation, economic meltdown and other threats to our survival, increasing numbers of people experience a pervasive sense of denial and despair. But Jeremy Brecher has seen common preservation in action, and in Save the Humans? he shows how it works. From Gandhi's civil disobedience campaigns in India, to the 2011 uprisings throughout the Middle East, Brecher shows what we can learn from past social movements to help us confront today's global threats.
