Storming the Gates of Paradise: Landscapes for Politics

by Rebecca Solnit Author

A huge, compelling collection of almost forty of Rebecca Solnit's political essays of the last decade, ranging from San Francisco to London to Mexico to the Pyrenees, everywhere looking at how our physical environment and the pleasures we can take from it—or are denied, as in prison—affects our political outlook and reality. Always lyrical, startling, and insightful, she invites us to look with new eyes not just on the deserts, oceans, plains, mountains, and skylines around us but ath the borders, ruins, protests, and surveillance that take up just as much of our public imagination.
