Rebecca Solnit: Det finns hopp i mörkret

Författaren Rebecca Solnit bjuder på sin bok Hope in the Dark: Untold Histories,:Wild Possibilities, som gratis e-bok under en tid, som ett resultat av valet av Donald Trump som president i USA. Hon lyfter fram kraften i progressiv aktivism:

”With Hope in the Dark, Rebecca Solnit makes a radical case for hope as a commitment to act in a world whose future remains uncertain and unknowable. Drawing on her decades of activism and a wide reading of environmental, cultural, and political history, Solnit argued that radicals have a long, neglected history of transformative victories, that the positive consequences of our acts are not always immediately seen, directly knowable, or even measurable, and that pessimism and despair rest on an unwarranted confidence about what is going to happen next.

Originally published in 2004, now with a new foreword and afterword, Solnit’s influential book shines a light into the darkness of our time in an unforgettable new edition.”
