Overview

The Earth Times Foundation, publisher of The Earth Times, has launched a new, not-for-profit book publishing company, Earth Times Books.

The first title of Earth Times Books is All of Us: Births and a Better Life- Population, Development and Environment in a Globalized World. The book's formal publication date is September 1, but it will be available by the end of June. Contributors to the 500-page anthology include well known names such as President Bill Clinton; A. M. Rosenthal, columnist for The New York Times; Nafis Sadik, executive director of the United Nations Population Fund; Flora Lewis, Tom Wicker, Paul Hofmann, and John Corry, all formerly of The Times; Klaus Schwab, president and founder of the World Economic Forum; Audrey Ronning Topping, the Asia expert and photojournalist; Soon-Young Yoon, the anthropologist; Steven W. Sinding of the Rockefeller Foundation; and Seymour Topping, Administrator of the Pulitzer Prizes.

In addition to such international bylines, "All of Us" contains articles by fresh voices from the grassroots, especially in developing countries. The book is edited by Jack Freeman, formerly of NBC News, and Pranay Gupte, formerly of The New York Times and now a columnist for Newsweek International (and editor and publisher of The Earth Times). Design and illustrations are by Louis Silverstein, formerly assistant managing editor of The New York Times--and the man who helped transform the modern-day Times into a multi-section newspaper.

"All of Us" consists of selections from the pages of The Earth Times, an independent, nonpartisan print and Web newspaper that was started eight years ago. The newspaper focuses on the environment, sustainable economic development, gender issues, children's rights, health and education, science and technology, media, business, and population.

Earth Times Books expects to publish at least six to ten titles each year. Our idea is to provide an opportunity for writers who don't ordinarily get exposure in Western mainstream publishing.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This extraordinary collection of essays spans the world to offer information and vision about developing countries, sustainable development, environmental and population issues, financial concerns, and globalization. Also covered are gender and human rights issues. Edited by Freeman--formerly with NBC Nightly News and currently chief correspondent for the Earth Times--and Gupte--editor and publisher of the Earth Times--the book includes President Clinton, Erin Towbridge, Bella Abzug, and A.M. Rosenthal. If a reader could find time to read just one book on contemporary issues this year, it should be this one. Highly recommended for academic and public libraries.--Sandra Isaacson, OAO/US EPA at Las Vegas Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
