The Little Book of Shocking Global Facts

by Barnbrook Design
£8.95   paperback  Fiell Publishing Limited (2010)

The Little Book of Shocking Global Facts by Barnbrook Design Combining startling graphic imagery with truly shocking facts gathered from the world’s most authoritative sources, The Little Book of Shocking Global Facts is a powerful visual manifesto by the world’s most respected graphic designer, Jonathan Barnbrook and his studio. This small yet ethically driven book questions the status quo of global politics and highlights the inequalities and iniquities of rampant globalization.
 
How is it that the developed world spends billions of dollars annually on weaponry, while the poor of the developing world have no access to education, medicines or even clean drinking water? What exactly is the relationship between cheap goods on the high street and the wage-slavery of sweatshops? How have large corporations branded the world in which we live?
 
The Little Book of Shocking Global Facts addresses these questions and many more besides, through its thought-provoking imagery and the persuasiveness of its first-rate research. This landmark publication demonstrates compellingly through words and pictures that unfettered globalization is a highly destructive force when used for profit or political power, and that a new compassionate world order needs to be instigated. This important manifesto for global change will undoubtedly change its readers’ hearts and minds.
