A Paradise Built in Hell: The Extraordinary Communities That Arise in Disaster

A Paradise Built in Hell: The Extraordinary Communities That Arise in Disaster, by Rebecca Solnit

In our popular imagination, disasters lead to chaos and Purge-like violence against other humans to make sure that we get ours. In truth, as Rebecca Solnit shows in this powerful book, disaster often reveals the best of us. Indeed, the humanity that we display when we are in our darkest hours, could teach us a thing or two about how to live during better times. An important read, especially if you, like me, believed the pop-culture narrative.
