Facing the Population Challenge: Wisdom from the Elders

Drawing from many decades of practical experience and deep knowledge, they trace the contours of rapid population growth, its socioeconomic and environmental challenges, and the lessons they have learned in dealing with these challenges. They go on to lay out concrete actions that can move our civilization forward to a future of wanted children, empowered women, and an economy that works within restored ecosystems.

Jamal and Damilola: A Nigerian Banking Scam Romance
2013 by Julian H. Scaff
Jamal and Damilola is a cross-genre art book existing as art object, performance, and cultural inquiry.  It lays out, in detailed exchange, the online romance between Jamal Skaff, a Lebanese party-loving resident of Ibiza, and Damilola Sodipo, a lost, yearning-for-true-love young woman claiming to be Scottish but who is in fact (probably) a young man running banking scams out of Lagos, Nigeria.  The book documents their humorous and at times non-sensical ‘relationship’, exploring the constructed narratives of banking scams, via an amorphous online body politic which is connected and yet simultaneously disconnected.
