Elliot Park Recreation Center 1000 14th ST E Minneapolis Presented by the 5th CD Green Party of Minnesota In North America, human beings have become enthralled by the automobile: A quarter of our working lives are spent paying for them; communities fight each other for the right to build more of them; our cities have been torn down, remade and planned with their needs as the overriding concern; wars are fought to keep their fuel tanks filled; songs are written to praise them; cathedrals are built to worship them. In Stop Signs: Cars and Capitalism on the Road to Economic, Social and Ecological Decay, authors Bianca Mugyenyi and Yves Engler argue that the automobile's ascendance is inextricably linked to capitalism and involved corporate malfeasance, political intrigue, backroom payoffs, media manipulation, racism, academic corruption, third world coups, secret armies, environmental destruction and war. An anti-car, road-trip story, Stop Signs is a must-read for all those who wish to escape the clutches of auto domination. "Mugyenyi and Engler's Stop Signs is at one and the same time an entertaining, fact-filled anthropological tour of the land of Homo Automomotivis, and the first all-out global ecological critique of the American automobile addiction. Not since Jane Holtz Kay's Asphalt Nation has a book appeared that so clearly exposed the auto-irrationality of the most car-dependent country on earth." --John Bellamy Foster, editor of Monthly Review and co-author, The Ecological Rift Yves Engler has been dubbed "one of the most important voices on the Canadian Left today" (Briarpatch magazine) and "in the mould of I. F. Stone" (Globe and Mail). His four previous books have been praised by Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein, William Blum and many others. Bianca Mugyenyi was born in Uganda and spent parts of her youth in Swaziland, Kenya and England. She is the former chair of the Canadian Federation of Students - Quebec and has been heavily involved in campaigns ranging from the struggle for accessible education and reproductive rights to justice for missing and murdered indigenous women in Canada. She currently coordinates campaigns and programming at Concordia's Centre for Gender Advocacy.
