Jordan Flaherty, 'Floodlines: Community and Resistance from Katrina to the Jena Six'

Haymarket, 2010; 304pp; £11.99

Evocative, well-written account of post-Katrina struggles for social justice in New Orleans by (white) participant-journalist Flaherty, with plenty of lessons for activists further-afield. Indeed, as Flaherty himself notes, “These struggles are global, and should concern us all.” Not to be missed.
