Full Description

At once an urgent manifesto and a dramatic memoir of awakening, this is the story of revolutionary love—a radical and joyful practice to heal ourselves and transform the world around us.

How do we love in a time of rage? The answer is revolutionary love, a practice that enriches the meaning of both revolution and love and extends in three directions: love for others, love for our opponents, and love for ourselves. It enjoins us to see no stranger but instead look upon the face of anyone and say: You are part of me I do not yet know. Starting from that place of wonder, our world begins to shift. This practice can transform an encounter, a relationship, a community, a culture, even a country. This is why Valarie Kaur—renowned Sikh activist, filmmaker, and civil rights lawyer—calls Revolutionary Love the call of our times.

In See No Stranger, Kaur takes readers through her own gripping journey of discovery—as brown girl growing up in California farmland finding her place in the world; as a young adult galvanized by the racist murders of Sikhs after 9/11; as a law student fighting injustices in American prisons and on Guantanamo Bay; as an activist working with communities recovering from devastating xenophobic attacks; and as a woman trying to heal from her own experiences with police violence and sexual assault. Drawing from the wisdom of sages and neuroscientists and activists, Kaur reclaims love as active, political, and public, a genuinely revolutionary force that creates new possibilities for ourselves, our communities, and our world.

Grounded in Kaur’s powerful encounters with our century’s signature struggles—war and white supremacy, sexual violence and mass incarceration—this timeless and timely book shows us how to summon our wisest, bravest selves and build movements that leave no one behind. In an era defined by rage, See No Stranger helps us imagine new ways of being with each other—and with ourselves—so that together we can begin to build the world we want to see.
