Arguing that the "uprising" against the War in Iraq was actually a victory, not a defeat, the author traces the many interwoven threads of the anti-globalization and anti-war movements, revealing the contours of a new brand of radicalism in America. Original.

Author Rebecca Solnit draws on her life as a writer and activist, on the events of our moment, on our deepest past, to argue for hope - hope even in the dark. Solnit reminds us of how changed the world has been by the activism of the past five decades. Offering a dazzling account of some of the least expected of those changes, she proposes a vision of cause-and-effect relations that provides new grounds for political engagement in the present. Counting historic victories - from the fall of the Berlin wall to the Zapatista uprising to Seattle in 1999 to the Worldwide marches against war in Iraq to Cancun in September 2003 - she traces the rise of a sophisticated, supple, nonviolent new movement of movements that unites all the diverse and fragmentary issues of the eighties and nineties in our new century.
