New No-Nonsense Guide
The world’s addiction to economic growth continues with barely any recognition that this is a problem.
The No-Nonsense Guide to Degrowth & Sustainability looks deeper into the idea of economic growth – to trace its history and understand why it has become so unchallengeable and powerful.
And then it goes beyond that to present the alternative – how we can kick our dirty habit.
Across the globe, migrants - men and women, the young and the old - are routinely deprived of their liberty. The Eastern European states prefer isolated former barracks in the woods. The British go for closed prisons. Australians like to warehouse migrants in camps on their neighbours' land mass.
The problem is getting worse. States are holding people on the move for longer, and in greater numbers, than ever before. Between them, Europe and the US imprisoned close to one million migrants in 2011.
The January/February issue of New Internationalist will look at the consequences for migrants and society as a whole.
The revolutionary Peters Projection presents countries in their true proportion to one another:

This has been described as 'the age of the whistleblower'. The activities of Edward Snowden, Chelsea Manning and Julian Assange have produced disclosures of an unprecedented scale and impact. Whistleblowers are both lionized - Snowden has been nominated for several awards - and despised in the eyes of some. But even while we praise their courage, our treatment of people who expose uncomfortable truths is deeply ambivalent and often harsh in the extreme. It makes whistleblowing, in the words of someone who has done it, 'a near suicidal vocation'
This month's New Internationalist takes a closer look at the people who feel compelled to expose wrongdoings, even if it means losing their jobs, their friends, their relationships, their freedom, their citizenship. What makes them tick? What can be done to ensure they are listened to and protected from the almost inevitable wave of retaliation? And are these individuals making us rethink what we mean by democracy, security and citizenship?

It’s been labelled ‘the Earth’s final round-up’. Investors are seeking to annex forests and farmland, anticipating food shortages, dwindling oil stocks and poor financial returns elsewhere.
We are four years into the phenomenon. And while the pace has slowed, the global rush for land in the developing world is still on. In next month’s issue of New Internationalist, we travel to Mozambique – one of Africa’s fastest-growing economies, where the drive to investment is intense. We meet rural communities dispossessed by powerful companies, speak to subsistence farmers at odds with Scandinavian foresters,
Indian rice giants and biofuel projects. But, as well as the woes, we will hear about growing South-South resistance to unbalanced deals.
Land grabs lie at the heart of development debates today. Will Majority World nations take the easy option, outsourcing agriculture and buying into the quick-fix private-sector promise to end poverty? Or will they tackle
hunger direct, by supporting long-neglected smallholder farmers? Do ‘win-win’ deals even exist? The path that governments choose will determine whether the peasants of today hold on to community land rights or become landless labourers of the future.
The State of the World Atlas is a magnificently visual survey of current events and global trends.
