The Power of One: Authentic Leadership in Turbulent Times [New Society Publishers, (1990)]. This book makes the case for a new type of leadership and a new understanding of why we need it.

Creating a World That Works for All [Berrett-Koehler Publishers, 1999]. Winner of the "Book of the Year" award from the Independent Book Publishers Association, this comprehensive book makes the case for a global society based on the value of inclusivity: "We are One".
Seven Seeds for a New Society [Commonway Press, 2009]. Articulates the philosophy, theory and practice of a radically new way to envision society. Instead of systems and structures based on adversarial processes (capitalist, communist and everything in between).

The Chronicles of the Upheavals
Book One of "The Metamorphosis of Humanity
Shariff M. Abdullah
It's the year 2125, and the human world has had its mega-crises. The history of the 21st Century was dominated by "The Upheavals": every crisis that threatened humanity happened. Just about everything that could go wrong, did.
"The Upheavals" took a heavy toll... billions of humans perished in the human-caused cataclysms.
Despite the Upheavals, humanity made it. From the shock of dysfunction and the fog of denial, humanity moved into new ways of working with each other and working with the Earth. (Actually, a lot of old ways...)
Humanity makes it, because of the visionary work of the Awakening Movement, catalyzed by the mysterious "Culture Council". What for some was "The End" was really "The Transformation".
After an Introduction from 2125 by the Culture Council, the "Upheavals" starts at 2025, with the rescue of a street kid and his learning of the ways and values of one Awakening Center. Through his interactions with his fellow novices and his superiors, he learns to accept the mission of the Awakening Centers in providing a realistic pathway through the Upheavals. Through this young novice (with an old attitude and a new name), we learn how the brave new world of the 21st Century takes shape.
