Product Description


"This is a book to be cherished, something to keep close at hand for those dark moments when you wonder whether the world really is a better place than it was 50 years ago." (Independent on Sunday)

"Her passionate defence of direct action is a refreshingly corrective, while, crucially, her celebration of people power is proactive rather than complacent." (Metro)

"A jewel of a book. Solnit reveals where we were, where we are, and the step-by-step advances that have been made in human rights, as we stubbornly stumble out of the darkness." (Studs Terkel)

"A short, elegant, passionate polemic on the history and future of progressive political engagement." (Robert Macfarlane Guardian)

Book Description

An exploration of people power over five decades - a defence of protest and an exploration of hope in dark times

HASH(0xa1359a80) out of 5 stars Hope matters 3 Nov. 2014
By Gerri Ravyn Stanfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Whenever I start to lose myself in the narrative that everything is unraveling and there is no personal or collective response that could make a difference, I refer back to Solnit. This book reminds me not to give away hope and power and calls me back to action. We need to hear the success stories. We need to remember who we are and what we can become.
HASH(0xa13646cc) out of 5 stars even better on the second reading 22 Jan. 2014
By CounterCultureWarrior - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book about our world's many crises and injustices helps us to cope by rethinking our assumptions and looking at ancient and recent world events in a new light. In it, hope is redefined inexhaustibly. If anything, creativity holds answers to our crises. Understanding both what hope is and what it isn't is essential to our coming to terms with evil and injustice. Hope is not faith, not wait-and-see, not compromise, not merely the opposite of despair. Hope is an essential element in patient, energetic, effective activism and persistent principled resistance to injustice and other evils. Dissatisfaction mobilizes, hope stabilizes in struggle. Hope helps our ideas grow and bear fruit. Hope is not a dream, it is a force that gives our life meaning.
Tolle, lege! Pick it up and read it! We all need this.
