This volume contains an eclectic but accessible collection of reportage, interviews, letters, fragments, and theoretical responses from some of the brightest newâas well as a few establishedâminds in critical theory. Its authors have sent dispatches from American prison yards, the shipping graveyards of India, fatal overseas drone strikes, roads crisscrossing the Mississippi delta, childhoods in revolutionary Zimbabwe, and kitchens where undocumented workers wash dishes. As the serial disasters of capitalismâs current crisisâeconomic, political, environmentalâcontinue to batter the world, Black Box: A Record of the Catastrophe is a device for recording, analyzing, and transmitting events as they happen. It offers neither dire predictions nor false hopes; instead, it embraces the mystery of what might transpire. Contributors include scholars (Nina Power, Silvia Federici, Sami Khatib, Chris OâKane, Tanya Erzen), cultural critics (Richard Dyer, Charles Mudede), authors (Ursula K. Le Guin, Miranda Mellis), poets (Emily Abendroth, Cathy Wagner, Alli Warren), and many others.
