About the Author

Joe Costello has been at the confluence of politics, communications, economics, and energy for over three decades. Costello worked for over a dozen years running election campaigns from the city council to presidential level, starting with Edward M. Kennedy's presidential campaign in 1980. In 1992, he was Communications Director for California Governor Jerry Brown's presidential campaign where he very successfully helped redefine political communications and campaign fundraising. In 2004, he was a Senior Adviser to Governor Howard Dean's ground breaking presidential campaign. In the late 1990s, working with a coalition of energy companies and environmental groups, he devised and helped organize a successful statewide campaign to promote solar, wind, and geothermal energy generation to California businesses and local governments. In recent years, he led a marketing campaign for Tree Media's and Leonardo DiCaprio's award winning environmental documentary, The 11th Hour. He has worked with personal computer entrepreneur – Lotus 1,2,3, and Internet pioneer, Mitchell Kapor. He was a United Nations NGO representative for Mikhail Gorbachev's Global Green USA to the “United Nations Global Summit on Sustainability” in Johannesburg, South Africa 2002, and the “United Nations Convention on Climate Change,” in Bali, Indonesia, 2007. He is a graduate of Boston College. Over the last two decades, Costello became increasingly concerned with the growing corruption and dysfunction of the American political economy. He believes political and economic reform is a necessity and will only be accomplished by the individual political will and collective action of the American people.

"The people are their own liberators ~ Nelson Mandela". While, this quote may seem trite, especially as Joe Costello exposes the tools of social larceny such as corruption, deceit, manipulation, coercion and demagoguery that have led to the erosion and usurping of American democracy, Costello's ultimate message is clear - the people are indeed the owners of their democracy, their liberty and their own justice.

Joe Costello has compiled a collection of his short essays on politics, involvement, the environment and "small d" democracy in this terrific book. Costello discusses our current political lives through the lens of, among others, the Civil Rights and environmental movements, Nietsche and the economic and political corruption sweeping the global economy. Well-written, thought-provoking and wide-ranging,this is a book that can bring meaningful dialogue and, one hopes, change to these times. Whether or not the reader is moved to action, Costello's passion can't help but provide hope for a return to a democratic society. Well done!

Format: Paperback
Costello has spent most of his career in politics, and knows how rotten it has become. But he writes not from despair or anger, but with hope and urgency, and with practical ideas on how to reconstitute politics in America. He also provides illuminating, lively historical and contemporary references. Read this as an antidote for the cynicism and learned hopelessness of our time.

This book puts together the complexities of today's economy better than anything I've seen. It helps clarify the political interests that shape and form the mess we're in and how they are directed by the major financial corporations of our time.
