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.

Comment #36 by Football on March 13, 2012 - 5:29pm

At first I wondered if a book could really focus on such a broad subject as the worldwide implications for 911 (spiritually, personally, foreign policy? As a society? ) However after reading the reviews of the book, I must say I am intrigued to read it to indeed see if the goal of the book was accomplished.

Comment #37 by point of use water cooler on April 2, 2012 - 7:29am
