Another World Is Possible

Buy From
Purchase from Amazon

In the first major collection of responses to September 11th, six twentysomethings from across the US (including one who lost his father in the World Trade Center) reflect on how the crisis has impacted their lives, explore the roots of anti-American terrorism, and offer concrete solutions for preventing future atrocities.

Even when other anthologies are published, Another World is Possible: Conversations in a Time of Terror will stand alone among them, for the following reasons:

Who is in It?
Familiar voices such as Angela Davis, Deepak Chopra, Eduardo Galeano, Rebecca Walker, Barbara Kingsolver, Davey D, John Robbins, Rep. Barbara Lee, Aaron McGruder (Boondocks), and Sebastião Salgado (photographer) are balanced with family members who lost loved ones; people who escaped alive and/or experienced anti-Middle Eastern scape-goating firsthand.

Fresh Voices in the Conversation
Another World is Possible speaks with fresh voices. More than 100 of them. Roughly half the contributors are people of color, half women, half emerging writers and activists under 30. They run the gamut from personal to political, practical to visionary, poetic to profound, funny to fierce.

Who are the Editors?
Beka Economopoulos volunteers at the Salvation Army and the Arab-American Family Support Center.

Jeremy Glick teaches at Rutgers University and fields questions from students about what it was like to lose his father in the World Trade Center.

Luis Sanchez works with youth in East LA who are happy for the first time not to be the targets of immigrant-bashing.

Jee Kim is part of and works with immigrant communities of color in New York, one of the groups most devastated by 9/11 and least represented in media coverage of the tragedy.

Walidah Imarisha grew up on military bases, resides in North Philly, and feels that living in a time of terror is nothing new.

Shaffy Moeel watched the tragedy on TV from South Africa, where everyone wanted to know what she felt -as an AmericanÇ then returned to California to find she was more other than ever.

What is the Book About?
Another World is Possible begins with personal stories from September 11th. It follows with: Why did this happen? Analysis of US foreign policy in the Middle East, and the backlash against Arab-Americans and freedoms at home. And: Where do we go from here personally? Spiritually? In foreign policy? As a society?

Much has been said about the necessity of stopping Al-Qaeda, the Taliban, and the Anthrax senders little about the role of the US military in training and funding these monsters, nor the likelihood that Bush's cowboy-style reaction will leave Americans even more vulnerable to future attacks.

Contributors Tell Stories that have gone underreported in the media: The families of dead and displaced undocumented workers who were denied relief; the thousand plus detained and unexplained people; the profoundly unpatriotic 'Patriot Act'; Bush's insane energy policy; the ill-conceived sanctions on Iraq; the diversion of relief funds to corporate bailouts; and systematic silencing of those questioning the Washington war consensus.

Well, the book "Another World Is Possible" does sound like an interesting purchase. I admit that it's not easy for me to hear stories from September 11th - a painful event in my opinion not only to America, but to the entire world. I do want to believe, on the other hand, that our civilization can overcome this and create a better world for our children and grandchildren.

Comment #6 by Life alert cost on September 28, 2010 - 5:55am

I read the book. It touched my heart. It sheds light into the lives of people who are seriously affected by the World Trade Center collapse. I think the United States should blame itself for what happened. It was the result of America’s “world police” attitude. I am happy to note that Obama is not repeating the previous mistakes made by George Bush with regard to foreign policy. Anyway I really liked the book. I would like to recommend this book to all my fellow bloggers.

Comment #17 by Fresno pest control on February 1, 2011 - 5:22pm

This book with a lot more words than emotions, succeeds when you get many people's perceptions of how it happened over the 9-11 tragedy across. Focusing on historic events, the ongoing oppression and racism inside the U.S. along with the events the led nearly the attacks, Another World can be done has opened our collective wound to conversation and dialogue within ourselves and our greater.

Comment #18 by jogging tips on February 8, 2011 - 4:18pm

It's depressing to think, but many of us have a thin veneer, below which hatred and prejudice can surface.

Comment #19 by house cleaning on February 14, 2011 - 6:09am

It's ideas like this book that keep my hope in the world alive. If there weren't people looking for ways to make the world better (different)--we'd really be in trouble.

This is an essay by Jo Freeman during the 1970's on the search for a liberation movement Womyns without structure and, while critical of the structures that are (seemingly out of nowhere) within groups.

Elegantly crafted digital frames to show off treasured memories. Sleek digital picture frames that blend with the décor of a home make the Nix digital photo frame a “must have.” There are digital frames for everyone.
