Book Summary:

Beginning in the late '60s, hundreds of thousands of Westerners descended upon India, disciples of a cultural revolution that proclaimed that the magic and mystery missing from their lives was to be found in the East. An Indian writer who has also lived in England and the United States, Gita Mehta was ideally placed to observe the spectacle of European and American "pilgrims" interacting with their hosts. When she finally recorded her razor sharp observations in Karma Cola, the book became an instant classic for describing, in merciless detail, what happens when the traditions of an ancient and longlived society are turned into commodities and sold to those who don't understand them. In the dazzling prose that has become her trademark, Mehta skewers the entire Spectrum of seekers: The Beatles, homeless students, Hollywood rich kids in detox, British guilt-trippers, and more. In doing so, she also reveals the devastating byproducts that the Westerners brought to the villages of rural lndia -- high anxiety and drug addiction among them. Brilliantly irreverent, Karma Cola displays Gita Mehta's gift for weaving old and new, common and bizarre, history and current events into a seamless and colorful narrative that is at once witty, shocking, and poignant.

Book Summary:

“How does it feel to be a problem?” asked W. E. B. Du Bois of black Americans in his classic The Souls of Black Folk. A hundred years later, Vijay Prashad asks South Asians “How does it feel to be a solution?” In this kaleidoscopic critique, Prashad looks into the complexities faced by the members of a “model minority”-one, he claims, that is consistently deployed as "a weapon in the war against black America." On a vast canvas, The Karma of Brown Folk attacks the two pillars of the “model minority” image, that South Asians are both inherently successful and pliant, and analyzes the ways in which U.S. immigration policy and American Orientalism have perpetuated these stereotypes. Prashad uses irony, humor, razor-sharp criticism, personal reflections, and historical research to challenge the arguments made by Dinesh D’Souza, who heralds South Asian success in the U.S., and to question the quiet accommodation to racism made by many South Asians. A look at Deepak Chopra and others whom Prashad terms “Godmen” shows us how some South Asians exploit the stereotype of inherent spirituality, much to the chagrin of other South Asians. Following the long engagement of American culture with South Asia, Prashad traces India’s effect on thinkers like Cotton Mather and Henry David Thoreau, Ravi Shankar’s influence on John Coltrane, and such essential issues as race versus caste and the connection between antiracism activism and anticolonial resistance. The Karma of Brown Folk locates the birth of the “model minority” myth, placing it firmly in the context of reaction to the struggle for Black Liberation. Prashad reclaims the long history of black and South Asian solidarity, discussing joint struggles in the U.S., the Caribbean, South Africa, and elsewhere, and exposes how these powerful moments of alliance faded from historical memory and were replaced by Indian support for antiblack racism. Ultimately, Prashad writes not just about South Asians in America but about America itself, in the tradition of Tocqueville, Du Bois, Richard Wright, and others. He explores the place of collective struggle and multiracial alliances in the transformation of self and community-in short, how Americans define themselves.

Book Summary:

This timely book is a sequel to John Grant’s Green Marketing Manifesto which was the award winning and bestselling definitive guide to green marketing (and not greenwashing) in the previous wave of eco marketing in 2007. In 2019, climate change is right back at the top of the public agenda. Greta Thunberg and Extinction Rebellion are front page news. The UK, EU and other governments have declared a climate emergency. 181 CEOs of American companies - including Walmart, Amazon and Apple - signed a Business Round Table declaration saying that the purpose of corporations is not just to make money for shareholders, but to improve society, care for the environment and be ethical. Unilever CEO Alan Jope says they will dispose of brands that don’t have a bigger purpose. Concerns like ocean plastic (the ‘Blue Planet effect’) have upped the pace of change. With ambitious responses such as refills stations, unpackaged goods, super-materials from wood fibre and seaweed and a new ‘milkman for groceries’ reusable packaging service called Loop. Sustainable brands are now outperforming others in most markets. Eco challenger brands like VEJA and Allbirds are ‘the new cool’. While Adidas showed (with Parlay ocean plastic shoes) you can also create a billion dollar mainstream offer. Even banking is changing, with rapid growth in ESG and Impact Investing. Plus, the $40Bn overnight success of sustainability linked loans to companies like Philips and Prada. How can marketing and the creative industries respond? Even Extinction Rebellion thinks we can play a positive role – although XR also say it has to go beyond banning plastic straws - if we can only manage to tell the truth and lead the change. Hundreds of creative agencies and brands came out on climate strike and donated ideas: Or in the case of Patagonia donated their entire $10m tax windfall to environmental causes. But what now? How do you set a positive course? In this book we look at some of the leaders – brands like Patagonia and Max Burgers aiming to be climate positive. And we look at brands who have found a fresh sense of purpose by championing a relevant cause. The book is packed with case studies, tools, research insights. Covering issues like eco labelling, transparency, circular economy, rebound effects, impact investment, new coalitions and developments ranging from sustainable finance, to blockchain and traceability, to regenerative farming. One key theme that carries over from the Green Marketing Book is that marketers need to know their facts if attempts are not to be superficial. When you know 95% of the energy footprint of a mobile phone is in manufacturing and materials (not charging the battery) you know that getting people to dim their screen won’t save much CO2. But that getting them to keep their phone in use for an extra year is a huge win for the planet. The ultimate goal is to go beyond marketing that simply looks good, and to create a vision of marketing that does good. Uncover strategies for sustainable marketing that actually deliver on green and social objectives, not just greenwashing Reconceptualise marketing and business models, and learn to recognise the commercial strategies and approaches that are no longer fit for purpose Learn how hot topics like the climate crisis, single use plastics, and blockchain technology influence green and social marketing Read examples and case studies from both brand leaders and challengers that have developed innovations and fresh creative approaches to green and social marketing Get practical tools, models, facts, plus strategy, workshop and project processes and business case rationales - so that you can build your own plans and proposals This book is intended to assist marketers, by means of clear and practical guidance, through a comp

Book Summary:

An exhaustive list of mistakes a writer should never make (for example: insisting on total freedom of expression), and an Encyclopedia of the Dark side of publishing and writing, “The Killing of an Author” is a true story--of a small-town Indian dreamer who meets some of the most powerful people in the literary universe. The book is set mainly in New York, and partly in London and New Delhi. With cameo appearances by literary and publishing stars, and a relentless storytelling pace, this book has an element of literary thriller to it, one climactic moment being when the world's most powerful editor tells the author, "Remarkable ... I must admit I have been haunted by your novel!" and another when Saul Bellow's agent tells the author, "I can see this as a movie!" "What comes out is his integrity. Not many people about whom you can say this. If Richard succeeds, we shall all succeed."--Kuldip Nayar, eminent Indian author/editor/statesman. "Crasta has a sense of humour which he maintains from the start to the end. Funny, sad, and eye-opening. . .Dares to be different. We need more writers like him." --The Deccan Chronicle "You are funny and delightful . . . and nowhere are you too heavy to carry. I've never read anyone like you. I laugh, I ache, I smile, I cry - but never close the book without that smile surfacing."--Sheelagh Grenon, Canada "More than a book . . . an act of bravery."--Lulu Review Keywords: publishing, publishing memoir, New York publishers, British publishers, Penguin Books, Fourth Estate, Writers, Publishing Taboos, Writers, Author Biographies, Author Memoirs, How to Succeed, Race and Publishing.

Book Summary:

When author Carla Fountain set off on her year-long cycling journey, she expected new discoveries about the world. But she hadn’t anticipated a shocking rediscovery of herself. Bicycle Odyssey, a travel memoir, follows Carla and her husband, Dermot, as they embark on a challenging bicycling adventure that not only tests their survival skills, but ultimately their relationship. Armed with a will to persevere, they face unexpected danger and a cultural learning curve that nearly costs one of them their lives. In a time before modern conveniences, these two travelers off the beaten path lived disconnected from all communication. No cell phones to call home. No ATM for quick cash. No internet cafes to send a message. Relying solely on themselves, and a few helpful angels along the way, they experienced the lush beauty of Uganda, the welcoming people of Vietnam, the isolated mountains and hill tribes of Thailand, the terror of traffic in India, and the magic of Bali. Their journey did not end the moment they stepped foot at home. In fact, it continued for almost three decades as the couple digested the trip and acted on the lessons they learned. By telling their story, they hope to inspire and give confidence to others in pursuing dreams. Told with vivid observation about the world and the people in it, Bicycle Odyssey shares the story of a rich and enlightening pilgrimage.
