Description
How is it that the developed world spends billions of dollars annually on weaponry, while the poor of the developing world have no access to education, medicines or even clean drinking water? What exactly is the total value of the global drugs trade and what are its social implications? How is increasing globalization impacting on our shared environment? The Little Book of Shocking Global Facts is a powerful visual manifesto by one of today's most respected graphic designers, Jonathan Barnbrook and his studio. This ethically driven book questions the status quo of world politics, highlights the inequalities and iniquities of rampant capitalism and demonstrates compellingly through words and pictures that unfettered globalization is a highly destructive force when used for profit or political power, and that a more compassionate world order needs to be instigated. This important manifesto for global change will undoubtedly transform its readers' hearts and minds.
