Flashpoint Series 1-5

5-Book Set

Jens Soering , Michael Greger , pattrice jones , Melanie Joy and Bruce Friedrich

Sorry, Carbophobia! has gone out of print.

Each book in the Flashpoint Series explores social contemporary issues in a manner that is direct and challenging. Flashpoint titles are books to ignite the mind. Here, we've collected the first five of the series, and slashed the price.

The set includes:
  1. An Expensive Way to Make Bad People Worse by Jens Soering
    A call for reform not based on the perceived injustice of the criminal justice system or on the broken lives of inmates, but on a fiscally conservative agenda that taxpayers are not getting their value for money.
  2. Carbophobia! by Michael Greger (out of print)
    An examination of America's low-carb craze and the medical problems associated with a low-carb diet.
  3. Aftershock by pattrice jones
    Redefines the current understanding of "terror" in this psychological guide for radical activists and those who care for them.
  4. Strategic Action for Animals by Melanie Joy.
    Argues that strategy is the element most often missing in unsuccessful animal campaigns.
  5. The Animal Activist's Handbook by Matt Ball and Bruce Friedrich
    Argues for "joyous" activism over confrontational styles.

Whether you find the reading incendiary or illuminating, you'll likely be galvanized.
