The Better World Handbook
Small Changes That Make A Big Difference
Specifically designed to reach people who normally would not consider themselves activists, The Better World Handbook is directed toward those who care about creating a more just, sustainable and socially responsible world but don't know where to begin. Substantially updated, this revised best-seller now contains more recent information on global problems, more effective actions, and many new resources.
Ellis Jones, Ph.D. is the award-winning, best-selling author of four previous editions of The Better World Shopping Guide, and co-author of The Better World Handbook. A scholar of social responsibility, global citizenship, and ethical consumerism, he gives presentations throughout the US and Canada empowering people to make a difference. Ellis is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA, where he focuses his energies on bridging the gap between academics, activists, and the average citizen. www.betterworldshopper.org
