Hold Everything Dear: Dispatches on Survival and Resistance Summary

Hold Everything Dear: Dispatches on Survival and Resistance by John Berger

From the War on Terror to resistance in Ramallah and traumatic dislocation in the Middle East, Berger explores the uses of art as an instrument of political resistance. Visceral and passionate, Hold Everything Dear is a profound meditation on the far extremes of human behaviour, and the underlying despair. Looking at Afghanistan, Palestine, and Iraq, he makes an impassioned attack on the poverty and loss of freedom at the heart of such unnecessary suffering. These essays offer reflections on the political at the core of artistic expression and even at the center of human existence itself.

Hold Everything Dear: Dispatches on Survival and Resistance Reviews

"One of the most influential intellectuals of our time." - Observer "I admire and love John Berger's books ... Not since Lawrence has there been a writer who offers such attentiveness to the sensual world with responsiveness to the imperatives of conscience. He is a wonderful artist and thinker." - Susan Sontag "John Berger teaches us how to think, how to feel, how to stare at things till we see what we thought wasn't there. But above all he teaches us how to love in the face of adversity. He is a master." - Arundhati Roy, author of The God of Small Things
