The Battle For Paradise - Naomi Klein

Staff Pick

The Battle for Paradise is essential reading for every American. Into this nearly pocket-sized book, Naomi Klein packs a thorough account of Puerto Rico's struggle to recover after Hurricane María; her report is simultaneously deep enough for those who are familiar with the island's history and politics and accessible enough for those who aren't. Illustrating the visions and strategies of disaster capitalists as well as of grassroots Puerto Rican activists, Klein connects the reader to individuals and organizations doing work on the ground that will almost certainly shape the island's future. Expect to finish more informed, better equipped, and with a keener outlook on justice.
