Written from street barricades and train rides under Andean stars, this is a book that celebrates a world where many worlds fit. Journalist Benjamin Dangl has reported on revolutions and social justice movements around the globe. This collection of vivid photography and lucid writing depicts street scenes, cityscapes, and night jungles from the margins of his reporting. These are dispatches from beyond the homogenizing forces of global capitalism, from decolonized mountain markets, scattered autonomous territories, and peoples’ orchestras of the road. The Havana street parties, Ganges River bonfires, and jungle buses in these pages are journeys in themselves, evoking the vastness of our world of many worlds.
"A powerful journey through scenes of urban clamor and resistance.…"
Silvia Federici, author of Re-Enchanting the World: Feminism and the Politics of the Commons
