In the first major collection of responses to September 11th, six twentysomethings from across the US (including one who lost his father in the World Trade Center) reflect on how the crisis has impacted their lives, explore the roots of anti-American terrorism, and offer concrete solutions for preventing future atrocities. Familiar voices such as Angela Davis, Deepak Chopra, Eduardo Galeano, Rebecca Walker, Barbara Kingsolver, Davey D, John Robbins, Rep. Barbara Lee, Aaron McGruder (Boondocks), and Sebasti?o Salgado (photographer) are balanced with family members who lost loved ones; people who escaped alive and/or experienced anti-Middle Eastern scape-goating firsthand. Another World is Possible speaks with fresh voices. More than 100 of them. Roughly half the contributors are people of color, half women, half emerging writers and activists under 30. They run the gamut from personal to political, practical to visionary, poetic to profound, funny to fierce.
A racist backlash, the bombing of an already decimated country, and the denial of emergency relief funds to undocumented immigrants... Another World Is Possible amplifies these and other issues muffled by the mainstream media.
The Village Voice
On its face, Another World Is Possible posits solutions based on the primacy of of peace. Look deeper, though, and more textured ideas reveal themselves. These are thinkers preoccupied, above all, with truth. And that's needed now more than ever.
