Call Them by Their True Names: American Crises (and Essays)

by Rebecca Solnit Author

A collection of powerful, lyrical essays by Rebecca Solnit at her best: Drawing the connections we haven't yet put together ourselves between world events, cultural drifts, and personal experience. In these essays, she takes on the emotional aspect of electoral politics, the link between police shootings and gentrification, homelessness, life on death row, the Standing Rock protests against the oil pipeline, and what climate change means to humanity.
