This expanded version of the Monitor summer reading guide takes a break from frenetic social media feeds to assess the fluctuating political and economic reality from a place of relative stability: books. Rather than just telling us what they will be reading this summer, contributors ground longer arguments about the state of the world in recent Canadian and international non-fiction releases with a connection to the CCPA’s underlying mandate: to promote social, economic and environmental justice. You’ll also find summer reading tips from Octopus Books and, the latest research and commentary from CCPA researchers, and several excellent features—on environmental migration, progress in the Colombian peace talks, and the Habitat III conference—you won’t read anywhere else.

Here is a small sample of what you’ll find inside this issue. To receive the Monitor at home, please make a donation to the CCPA.
