Hablamos con la escritora, historiadora y activista Rebecca Solnit sobre su más reciente libro, que analiza el huracán Katrina y otros desastres. A Paradise Built in Hell: The Extraordinary Communities that Arise in Disaster (Un paraíso surgido en el infierno: Las extraordinarias comunidades que surgen tras las catástrofes) relata los crímenes de los vigilantes y de los poderosos durante el Katrina, además de los numerosos casos de altruismo, generosidad y valentía mostrados por la gran mayoría de personas que experimentaron esta catástrofe.
