    A collection of speeches given by Churchill in the 1930s, fiercely opposing the India Bill and India home rule.   In 1931, Britain's Conservative Party proposed the India Bill, a piece of legislation that would make significant changes to the way India governed itself under British rule. Winston Churchill was against the bill and defended his position with characteristic conviction and oratory brilliance. This book contains seven speeches and three important addresses Churchill gave on the subject, printed originally to generate popular support for Churchill's opinion.   Churchill's opposition to Indian home rule is one of his more controversial political positions and led to a period of political isolation for him. Despite the strength of his oration, the India Bill was approved by Parliament in 1935. Documenting a rare loss for Churchill, these speeches provide an important insight into his mind and strategy as a political leader.

    A look at what the American lifestyle has done to the environment—and how to move toward a better future.   In the last century, three powerful forces—oil, cars, and suburbs—buoyed the American dream. Yet now, the quality of life in the United States is declining due to these same three forces. Our dependence on oil is a root cause of wars, recessions, and natural disasters. Cars consume an outsize share of our incomes and force us to squander time in traffic. Meanwhile, expensive, spread-out suburbs devour farmland—and in a vicious cycle, further entrench our reliance on cars and oil.   In Terra Nova, conservation ecologist Eric W. Sanderson—the national bestselling author of Mannahatta—offers concrete steps toward a solution. He delves into natural history, architecture, chemistry, and politics, to show how the American relationship to nature has shaped our past, and how it can affect our future. Illustrated throughout with maps, charts, and infographics, Terra Nova demonstrates that it is indeed possible to achieve a better world.   “Sanderson commendably outlines ‘a new way of life . . . designed to sustain American prosperity, health, and freedom for generations to come.’” —Publishers Weekly

    A Comprehensive Summary Of So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo 
    About the Original Book 
    In the book “So You Want to Talk About Race” by Ijeoma Oluo, Oluo offers a hard-hitting but user-friendly examination of race in America. 
    She talks about how the widespread reporting on aspects of white supremacy--from police brutality to the mass incarceration of Black Americans--has put a media spotlight on racism in our society. Still, it is a difficult subject to talk about. How do you tell your roommate her jokes are racist? Why did your sister-in-law take umbrage when you asked to touch her hair--and how do you make it right? How do you explain white privilege to your white, privileged friend? 
    The book points out that discussions on racism need not be avoided. It seeks to create a narrative that it is high time people looked it in the eye and face it head-on instead of running away from it. 
    About this Summary 
    This summary guide is proudly brought to you by John Wilder. It contains a comprehensive, well-detailed summary and key takeaways of the original book by Ijeoma Oluo. It summarizes the book in detail, to help people effectively understand, articulate and imbibe the original work by Ijeoma.

    “This may be one of the most important books you read this year. We are being poisoned, and this book is sounding a well-informed alarm.” —Eve Ensler, New York Times–bestselling author 
     
    Chemical poisons have infiltrated all facets of our lives—housing, agriculture, work places, sidewalks, subways, schools, parks, even the air we breathe. More than half a century since Rachel Carson issued Silent Spring—her call-to-arms against the poisoning of our drinking water, food, animals, air, and the natural environment—The Fight Against Monsanto’s Roundup takes a fresh look at the politics underlying the mass use of pesticides and the challenges people around the world are making against the purveyors of poison and the governments that enable them. 
     
    The scientists and activists contributing to The Fight Against Monsanto’s Roundup, edited by long-time Green activist Mitchel Cohen, explore not only the dangers of glyphosate—better known as “Roundup”—but the campaign resulting in glyphosate being declared as a probable cancer-causing agent. In an age where banned pesticides are simply replaced with newer and more deadly ones, and where corporations such as Monsanto, Bayer, Dow and DuPont scuttle attempts to regulate the products they manufacture, what is the effective, practical, and philosophical framework for banning glyphosate and other pesticides? 
     
    The Fight Against Monsanto’s Roundup: The Politics of Pesticides takes lessons from activists who have come before and offers a radical approach that is essential for defending life on this planet and creating for our kids, and for ourselves, a future worth living in. 
     
    “Thoroughly and effectively indict[s] Monsanto, Syngenta, and other Big Food corporations for poisoning our soil, our water, and our genomes.” —Clifford D. Conner, author of The Tragedy of American Science
