New York Times bestselling author Kim Stanley Robinson returns with a bold and brilliant vision of New York City in the next century. As the sea levels rose, every street became a canal. Every skyscraper an island. For the residents of one apartment building in Madison Square, however, New York in the year 2140 is far from a drowned city. There is the market trader, who finds opportunities where others find trouble. There is the detective, whose work will never disappear -- along with the lawyers, of course. There is the internet star, beloved by millions for her airship adventures, and the building's manager, quietly respected for his attention to detail. Then there are two boys who don't live there, but have no other home -- and who are more important to its future than anyone might imagine. Lastly there are the coders, temporary residents on the roof, whose disappearance triggers a sequence of events that threatens the existence of all -- and even the long-hidden foundations on which the city rests.

New York, einhundert Jahre später. Der Meeresspiegel ist angestiegen, und die Straßen des Big Apple haben sich in Kanäle verwandelt und aus den einstigen Wolkenkratzern sind hoch aufragende Inseln geworden. Aber noch hat New York sich nicht aufgegeben. In einem Haus treffen so unterschiedliche wie ergreifende Schicksale aufeinander – Schicksale, die von der Zukunft nach dem Ökokollaps erzählen. Da ist zum Beispiel ein nimmermüder Detektiv, und da ist das Internet-Sternchen. Auf dem Dach leben die Coder. Ihr Verschwinden setzt schließlich eine Kette von Ereignissen in Gang, die das Leben aller New Yorker für immer beeinflussen werden.

Featuring readings of contemporary utopian poetry and fiction from authors such as Juliana Spahr, Mohsin Hamid, Bong Joon-ho, Kim Stanley Robinson, Lidia Yukavitch, and Cory Doctorow, this book investigates the commons - a form of organisation based on collectivity, communalism and sharing - as a type of transition between capitalist precarity and crisis and anti-capitalist futures. Each of the texts under examination was written in opposition to a particular crisis of the capitalist present - inequality, political representation, mobility, and climate change - and develops a particular mode of utopian 'commoning'. Through its examination of these writers, crises and texts, this book reaffirms the use of utopianism as a tool for generating and representing alternative futures for a world in the midst of ongoing planetary crisis.

De Kim Stanley Robinson – escritor best-seller do The New York Times e autor de obras-primas da ficção especulativa, como a Trilogia de Marte –, uma nova visão do futuro da cidade de Nova York do século XXII: uma metrópole inundada, mas vibrante A mais terrível previsão de cientistas de todo o mundo se concretiza: o aquecimento global eleva o nível dos oceanos, submergindo a cidade de Nova York. Os habitantes da metrópole, no entanto, conseguem se adaptar, e a Grande Maçã segue tão viva e fervilhante como sempre, ainda que de formas inteiramente distintas das de antes. Cada rua é agora um canal; cada arranha-céu, uma ilha. Por meio dos olhos – e dos destinos – de diversos moradores de um prédio da antiga Madison Square, Kim Stanley Robinson nos mostra como uma das maiores cidades do mundo se transformaria após uma catástrofe climática dessa magnitude, no limite entre a utopia e a distopia. Não seria apenas a cidade a mudar: a humanidade jamais seria a mesma.

The story of water in the United States is one of ecosystemic disruption and social injustice. From the Standing Rock Indian Reservation and Flint, Michigan, to the Appalachian coal and gas fields and the Gulf Coast, low-income communities, Indigenous communities, and communities of color face the disproportionate effects of floods, droughts, sea level rise, and water contamination. In Hydronarratives Matthew S. Henry examines cultural representations that imagine a just transition, a concept rooted in the U.S. labor and environmental justice movements to describe an alternative economic paradigm predicated on sustainability, economic and social equity, and climate resilience. Focused on regions of water insecurity, from central Arizona to central Appalachia, Henry explores how writers, artists, and activists have creatively responded to intensifying water crises in the United States and argues that narrative and storytelling are critical to environmental and social justice advocacy. By drawing on a wide and comprehensive range of narrative texts, historical documentation, policy papers, and literary and cultural scholarship, Henry presents a timely project that examines the social movement, just transition, and the logic of the Green New Deal, in addition to contemporary visions of environmental justice.
