New Book -- "THE WORLD IS TURNING"
by DON PAUL

Don Paul is now on tour reading from his new book. This is a new book with a new idea. It is a compilation of earlier writings of Don Paul and adds his new writings up until late 2008. Its subtitle is: "9/11, the movement for justice and reclaiming America for the world." Don Paul will show how the 9/11 attack of 2001 connects to the Wall Street bailout of 2008. He presents concrete solutions to major injustices of our time and he brings practical ideas for a sustainable future.

Responses to the Book

'The World Is Turning: " '9/11' ", the Movement for Justice, and Reclaiming America for the World combines two earlier
books by Don Paul and much other material into a single volume. This book of books, including pieces that expose 2008's
bail-out of commercial and investment Banks, altogether takes us on a crucially revealing journey into realities and lies
that shape our present.... Most importantly, this record of seven years' work gives us tools to penetrate layers of deceit, to perceive guilt, to arrive at justice, and to free ourselves.'
KEVIN RYAN, co-editor at journalof911studies.com, in his Foreword to The World Is Turning

'What really happened on September 11, 2001 remains one of the burning issues of our day. Don Paul is to be
commended for keeping this issue alive and for linking it to the financial 9-11 going on right now. A man of diverse talents
(novelist, poet, musician, environmentalist), Paul is also focused on presenting practical solutions for a sustainable future.'
ELLEN BROWN, author of 2008-2009's best-selling The Web of Debt
