BOOK ANNOUNCEMENT: Trumplandia: Unmasking Post-Truth America by NCTE George Orwell Award Winning Author P.L. Thomas
In unprecedented times when American values are at stake P.L. Thomas provides a moral compass for so many people who expected the first woman to become President of the United States. Thomas argues that this assumption grossly underestimated the rise of Donald Trump, which was an inevitable culmination of who the U.S. truly is as a people. In a series of brilliantly written essays Trumplandia examines how a reality TV star as president represents post-truth America as a failed democracy and as a country still deeply poisoned by racism, classism, sexism, and xenophobia. Running throughout as well is an implicit question: How can we resist Trumplandia and truly become a democracy? Learn more.
BOOK SALE: Nineteen Clues: Great Transformations Can Be Achieved Through Collective Action – 50% off on Amazon. Paperback book $7.95, ebook $4.95 on Amazon.
The Doomsday Clock has been moved closer to midnight because of Donald Trump, and in the European Parliament the U.S. President has been called an existential threat. And so, in this time of increased existential risks caused by Donald Trump’s ascendancy, at Garn Press we ask again: What can be done to sustain the planet for future generations? How can we lessen the impact of changing planetary pressures; prepare for life in extreme political, social and ecological environments; reduce the risk of disaster, and adapt? What can we do to overcome the barriers to action in response to the political threats to society? These threats include: the lack of strong democratic leadership; the ratings driven media; and, the unwillingness of democratic politicians to act? What would it take to make Earth a child safe zone?

First Do No Harm: Progressive Education in a Time of Existential Risk develops a comprehensive argument for the importance of progressive education in light of the world’s increasingly severe challenges. Current educational practices, particularly in the United States, instill conformity and compliance at a time when authority must be challenged, skepticism must thrive and our students must be imaginative, creative, empathic and passionately alive.
