Donald Donato is author of Agrotowns, a Brief History and Review of Resources (Taylor & Francis, Routledge) and a freelance contributor to People’s World. He reviews for the journals International Critical Thought and the World Review of Political Economy, and is a member of the National Writers Union-UAW Local 1981.
In 1991, Donald began his diverse writing career at the Lisbon-based North-South Centre of the Council of Europe, as its first student trainee. He has since worked and studied in France, Britain, Spain, Hungary, Brazil, Cambodia, India, Thailand, and Japan.
Over the past 30 years of writing in different capacities, Donald has sharpened his analytical teeth on formidable amounts of detailed research, consistently producing poignant summaries that provide useful information and give the reader a taste of what is truly at stake in every story.
Articulating information that meets human needs has been the theme of Donald’s work. He has achieved this by walking down several paths, from planning and executing social and economic development projects, to public policy analysis, and through his experiences as a worker in many fields.
