The Battle For Paradise
Puerto Rico Takes on the Disaster Capitalists
Amidst the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria in Puerto Rico, an intense battle for the island's future is being fought between community movements and neoliberal plutocrats. In The Battle for Paradise, award-winning journalist and activist Naomi Klein delivers fearless and necessary reporting to uncover how shock politics and disaster capitalism are working to undermine Puerto Rico's vision for a just recovery. This gripping investigation urges us to consider Puerto Rico's struggle for social equality, sovereignty, and sustainability as our own.
