  • New September 21! Pre-order today with your donation of $75 to WPKN! A radically new understanding of and practical approach to climate change by noted environmentalist Paul Hawken, creator of the New York Times bestseller Drawdown Regeneration offers a visionary new approach to climate change, one that weaves justice, climate, biodiversity, equity, and human dignity into a seamless tapestry of action, policy, and transformation that can end the climate crisis in one generation. It is the first book to describe and define the burgeoning regeneration movement spreading rapidly throughout the world. Regeneration describes how an inclusive movement can engage the majority of humanity to save the world from the threat of global warming, with climate solutions that directly serve our children, the poor, and the excluded. This means we must address current human needs, not future existential threats, real as they are, with initiatives that include but go well beyond solar, electric vehicles, and tree planting to include such solutions as the fifteen-minute city, bioregions, azolla fern, food localization, fire ecology, decommodification, forests as farms, and the number one solution for the world: electrifying everything. Paul Hawken and the nonprofit Regeneration Organization are launching a series of initiatives to accompany the book, including a streaming video series, curriculum, podcasts, teaching videos, and climate action software. Regeneration is the inspiring and necessary guide to inform the rapidly spreading climate movement.

  • Rough Guide to Bollywood Pledge $80

    It’s imposing to even try to survey the cinematic pop music work of India's Bollywood in a single disc, for the number of movies the Bombay-based center of the Hindi-language film industry has released since the 1940s probably outnumbers the stars in the heavens and its actors and actresses manage to sing a song, or two or three, in every one of them -- only it isn't them singing, but "playback singers" who provide the prerecorded vocals, while the actors lip-sync them onscreen. Playback singing is a precise and difficult art, and some playback singers like Lata Mangeshkar (who is represented here with three selections) have become shadowy stars whose faces are never seen onscreen. While it barely begins to scratch the surface of Bollywood’s massive musical catalog, Rough Guide has at least provided a starting point, and the track-by-track liner notes will help novices begin to navigate the confusing Bollywood waters.
