In recent decades, what could be considered a gamification of the world has occurred, as the ties between games and activism, games and war, and games and the city grow ever stronger. In this book, Anne-Marie Schleiner explores a concept she calls 'ludic mutation', a transformative process in which the player, who is expected to engage in the preprogramed interactions of the game and accept its imposed subjective constraints, seizes back some of the power otherwise lost to the game itself. Crucially, this power grab is also relevant beyond the game because players then see the external world as material to be reconfigured, an approach with important ramifications for everything from social activism to contemporary warfare.

Something new and important is afoot. Nonprofit and philanthropic organizations are under increasing pressure to do more and to do better to increase and improve productivity with fewer resources. Social entrepreneurs, community-minded leaders, nonprofit organizations, and philanthropists now recognize that to achieve greater impact they must adopt a network-centric approach to solving difficult problems. Building networks of like-minded organizations and people offers them a way to weave together and create strong alliances that get better leverage, performance, and results than any single organization is able to do. While the advantages of such networks are clear, there are few resources that offer easily understandable, field-tested information on how to form and manage social-impact networks. Drawn from the authors’ deep experience with more than thirty successful network projects, Connecting to Change the World provides the frameworks, practical advice, case studies, and expert knowledge needed to build better performing networks. Readers will gain greater confidence and ability to anticipate challenges and opportunities. Easily understandable and full of actionable advice, Connecting to Change the World is an informative guide to creating collaborative solutions to tackle the most difficult challenges society faces.

When author Betty L. Smith's husband returned from military service in the early 50s, they started a family. Unaware that cultural conditioning was misguiding their lives, they recreated their dysfunctional family origins. Unbearably unhappy, Betty stood at a dinette window and cried out to God. She wanted things to change regardless of the cost. The spirit of all life answered her prayer. "If you want change in your life then feel your feelings, write, and speak from the truth of your own experience." With this book of essays, reflections, and poems, Betty shares her personal journey through relationships, healing, and understanding. Her passage from "good girl" to "genuine self" was a powerful transformation. Now, she feels her true emotions and experiences life at a higher level of consciousness. Filled with unabashed emotion, The Power to Change confronts the negative cultural attitudes we experience as children. This conditioning often becomes a psychological straightjacket. By combining her experiences with the tenets of belief systems such as Shamanism, Sufism and Christianity, Betty explains how to listen to your heart-brain energy. By doing so, you'll become centered in your own authority. If you have ever felt poorly about yourself, this book is a must-read.

Are countries truly reconciled after successful conflict resolution? Are only resource-rich regions capable of reconciliation, while supposedly resource-poor ones are condemned to recurring conflicts? This book examines the availability of various resources for political reconciliation, and explores how they are utilized in overcoming particular obstacles during the process. While the existing literature focus on themes such as justice, apology and resentment, the analysis here is centered on intellectual resources in terms of ideas, memory cultures, master narratives, economic incentives, civil society initiatives and object lessons. The research and comparative research in this volume are conducted by renowned regional experts from South Africa to the Asia-Pacific, thus providing multidisciplinary perspectives and new insight on the subject.

The international community invests billions annually in thousands of projects designed to overcome poverty, stop violence, spread human rights, fight terrorism and combat global warming.
