One World Renaissance: The New Transformative Holism and Our Global Social Contract, by Glen T. Martin.  The book focuses on the revolutionary holism that science has discovered in the 20th century and that today is the foundation of a global paradigm shift beyond the war-system and the economic exploitation system to a sustainable, nonviolence, peaceful and just world system. Forthcoming 2015



The Anatomy of a Sustainable World: Our Choice between Climate Change and System Change, by Glen T. Martin, breaks new ground in the struggle for a transformed world system. This book examines the roots and the deadly consequences of our current unsustainable civilization as manifested in its war-system, nation-state system, and global economic system. All of these portend disaster for our planet unless we make profound systemic changes.

 This book illuminates both the roots of our present crisis and the concrete and practical steps we can take to transform civilization to sustainable principles. It does not rest in the realm of theory alone. It shows in detail what a sustainable world system would look like. It presents the specific political and economic steps we can take to make sustainability a reality.

 Please accept my congratulations on your new book. I think is excellent. It is clearly a must read.”   Prof. Dr. Timi Ecimovic, professor and chair of Environmental Sciences at Ansted University, Director,  SEM Institute for Climate Change, Korte, Slovenia.

Triumph of Civilization – Democracy, Nonviolence, and the Piloting of Spaceship Earth by Glen T. Martin, Sun City, AZ: Institute for Economic Democracy Press, January 2010 (406 pages). 

 This book examines the concept of democracy and the related concept of nonviolence in the light of the global crises we face at the dawn of the 21st century.  It develops a deeper understanding of democracy that is inherently nonviolent and fundamentally holistic. It argues that the way out of our current set of interdependent crises and systemic violence is to establish Earth Federation through actualizing, under a world constitution, the three most fundamental features of authentic democracy: positive freedom, reasonable economic equality, and a global community premised on the many “human universals” that we all share as well as the common good of the Earth and future generations.

Martin has written a substantive historical introduction situating the Earth Constitution within the world federalist movement of the past 80 years, an extensive commentary on the Constitution that explains the significance of its 19 articles one by one, and a conclusion in which he discusses the larger meaning of the Constitution and the Earth Federation Movement that promotes it.
