Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now more timely than ever, Alice Walker's Sent By Earth reflects on the tragedy of September 11, 2001, and addresses the anger many Americans felt at the presumed perpetrator of the attack: Osama binLaden. In powerfully reflective, nuanced, and above all heartfelt prose, Walker explores the seeds of hatred and resentment around the globe, and advances a surprisingly controversial theory: that hatred can never bedefeated by hatred, but only by love.

Synopsis:

Discusses the September 11 attacks, American racism, female genital mutilation, the deaths of Iraqi children since Desert Storm, and the oppression of Afghan women by the Taliban, to explore how humans deal with violence.
