Helping Ourselves: Local Solutions to Global Problems.
Stokes, Bruce
Solutions to global problems such as inflation, tightening energy supplies, and deteriorating environmental quality lie at the local level where the consequences are most obvious, the motivation to get involved is most direct, and the benefits of action are most immediate. Examples of problems regarding energy, the workplace, food production, health care, and family planning demonstrate the success of self-help efforts. Emphasized are actions at the personal and community levels, in contrast to reliance upon government, corporations, and the professional elite. (Author/WB)
