Power, Chaos or Consensus? 3rd Edition, How to Fix our Global Melt-Down
The Consocratic Plan (The last two chapters of Power, Chaos or Consensus?) 
The Old Man in the Bag, and Other True Stories of Good Intentions

Back then, Haile Selassie was still alive and in power, but he was an old manblind to the corruption around him. Although still revered by many, some were beginning to question his absolute authority. It was the beginning of student strikes, beatings and disappearances.

This book is, on one level, about how Ted and his wife helped a few dozen very poor local farmers establish a very remote new town in the dense uninhabited lowland jungle of the Rift Valley on land recently given to them by the sometimes loved, sometimes loathed Emperor. It is also about their own struggle as a newly married couple to survive fire, disease, drought and death in a very isolated, unfamiliar but intriguing environment.

The experiences were what inspired Ted to write “Power, Chaos or Consensus?”
