If you just look at the title of Brant Hansen's Unoffendable- How Just One .

If you just look at the title of Brant Hansen's Unoffendable- How Just One Change Can Make All of Life Better, it appears to be another self help book designed to teach the reader how to develop a tough skin. That assumption couldn't be further from the truth. I was fortunate enough to get an advanced copy of the book. The unoffendable message is given to the reader packed with humorous and heart touching stories told in Hansen’s quirky, but charming way.

The book Just Doing It, Brant Desfor is published by Black Rose Books.

It also provides an overview of the strengths of the book (the emphasis on local stories and real people, and themes of social justice and popular collective action) while recognizing that "broader coalitions for action" are also a vital part of global social change (p. xxii). The book is divided into two sections: the first dealing with Latin.

The Solo Travel Guide. Just Do It by Maldon, Dee (Paperback book, 2017).

Shipping to Russian Federation. The Solo Travel Guide. I Just Want to Do it My Way! by Cook, Julia (Julia Cook) (Paperback book, 2013).

Massive protests have disrupted global summit meetings from Seattle to Quebec City and from Gothenburg to Genoa. These demonstrations let the world know that resistance to globalization remains strong and vibrant. Not as clearly heard, though, are accounts of local communities organizing popular collective actions to resist those same institutions and policies of globalization.

Focusing on four countries—Mexico, Guatemala, United States, and Canada—the narratives in this volume tell of peoples’ collective struggles for environmental, economic and social justice. They deal with: indigenous peoples struggles against violence and coercion in Guatemala; Guatemalan refugees mobilizing in exile; environmental education for sustainable agriculture in Mexico; organizing waste pickers of Mexico; the resistence efforts to better working conditions of telemarketing operators; improving seniors housing; and the ways people of color have taken community actions to change oppressive environments in New York City.

In all cases the focus is on the meaning and usefulness of individual acts of resistance and their relationship to collective action: the ways people cope with difficult working conditions and how these acts help to change, not only the working conditions, but the workers themselves.

"These poignant and inspiring stories of communities resisting the corporate agenda...eloquently told...reveal the strength and creativity of people living on the margins."—Leonie Sandercock, author of Making the Invisible Visible
