Rebecca Solnit is for: Women. Men. Feminists. Historians. The budding activist. The person wanting to be informed and engaged with the political climate in America. From one of the greatest thinkers of our time, this collection of essays is not only accessible but extremely thought provoking. Rebecca Solnit should be required reading.

— Mandy


In this powerful and wide-ranging collection of essays, Rebecca Solnit turns her attention to the war at home. This is a war, she says, "with so many casualties that we should call it by its true name, this war with so many dead by police, by violent ex-husbands and partners and lovers, by people pursuing power and profit at the point of a gun or just shooting first and figuring out who they hit later." To get to the root of these American crises, she contends that "to acknowledge this state of war is to admit the need for peace," countering the despair of our age with a dose of solidarity, creativity, and hope.
