Hold Everything Dear Summary

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

One of the most influential intellectuals of our time returns with a meditation on political resistance. "Hold Everything Dear" is John Berger's vital response to today's global economic and military tyranny. From Hurricane Katrina, 9/11 and 7/7, to resistance in Ramallah and traumatic dislocation in the Middle East, Berger explores the countless personal choices, encounters, illuminations, sacrifices, new desires, griefs and memories that occur in the course of political resistance to empire and colonialism. These sensuous reflections reveal the political at the core of human existence, from the relentless of daily life in the West Bank, the potential force of desire, to the unflinching gaze of Pasolini's political film. Visceral and passionate, "Hold Everything Dear" is a profound meditation on what political resistance means today, by one of the most compelling radical voices of our age.

Hold Everything Dear Reviews

"I admire and love John Berger's books. He writes about what is important, not just interesting. In contemporary English letters, he seems to me peerless; 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"
