When Is a Ceasefire Not a Ceasefire?

By: Saturday July 26, 2014 5:00 pm

Today has been a confusing day with news of a 12 hour humanitarian ceasefire followed by talk of a four hour extension that may or may not have been accepted by Israel and was rejected by Hamas – and now, as I write, talk of a new 24 hour ceasefire.

While Israeli forces warned Gazans not to go to their home areas during the ceasefire, many did and the images and news are devastating with over 1000 dead, over 5000 injured and likely more in the rubble.

FDL Book Salon Welcomes Kim Stanley Robinson, Shaman

By: Sunday September 22, 2013 1:59 pm

What a treat for us to once again have Kim Stanley Robinson as our guest for the Firedoglake Book Salon. Many of you will remember our discussion last year of Robinson’s 2312 in which he took us 300 years into the future all the while teaching us so much about this very moment. In his new novel, Shaman, he takes us 30,000 years back, to Pleistocene times, the Ice Age, a transitional time in the long slow evolution of humans and our earth home. And yet, while the time zones differ dramatically, the heart of this new novel is very close to that of 2312 and again, to this moment of now.

Shaman tells the story of Loon, a young shaman in the making.

FDL Book Salon Welcomes David Brin, Existence

By: Sunday March 3, 2013 1:59 pm

In his latest novel, Existence, David Brin takes on the Fermi Paradox – the apparent contradiction between high estimates of the probability of the existence of extraterrestrial civilization and humanity’s lack of contact with, or evidence for, such civilizations. Set in the 2050s, Existence is at once familiar and oh so alien even before the initial contact with an alien artifact occurs.

FDL Book Salon Welcomes Doug Saunders, The Myth of the Muslim Tide

By: Sunday August 26, 2012 1:59 pm

Doug Saunders is a journalist of the rare kind these days. He actually researches, explores, investigates and only then reports on the major trends of our global community. His earlier book, Arrival City, explored “the final shift of human populations from agricultural life to cities… —from Maryland to Shenzhen, from the favelas of Rio to the shanty towns of Mumbai, from Los Angeles to Nairobi. “ His new book The Myth of the Muslim Tide addresses the fearful response of so many Americans and Europeans to one key constituency of that shift, Muslim immigrants.

FDL Book Salon Welcomes Kim Stanley Robinson, 2312

By: Saturday August 25, 2012 1:59 pm

In 2312, Robinson has taken us 300 years into the future, shifting beyond the near times of most of his works to a time when the consequences of our actions now play out in a devastated yet still home planet Earth. And Robinson reminds us, when 2312’s lead character Swan heads from her home Mercury to Earth of the wonder of our own planet, a wonder we forget and destroy with our current actions
