React (from Spanish: Reacciona) is a book by Rosa María Artal published in Spain in 2011 by Aguilar, which compiles articles by José Luis Sampedro, Baltasar Garzón, Federico Mayor Zaragoza, Javier Pérez de Albéniz, Javier López Facal, Carlos Martínez Alonso, Ignacio Escolar, Rosa María Artal, Angels Martínez Castells, Juan Torres Lopez and Lourdes Lucia. The book, edited by journalist Rosa María Artal, is intended to comment on the political crisis that exists in today's society -particularly in Spain- and the need for a social response to the corruption which has led to the 2011 financial, economic and political crisis. It emphasizes the fact that the concentrations of political powers are becoming increasingly distant from the citizenship.
Background: Time for Outrage!, Hessel's book
Purpose and content of the book
The collection of articles in the book React explain the current situation and show the need for a peaceful response by Spanish society to the current systemic economic, political and social crisis. Society is playing to its strength, stability and balance, especially in a generation of young people who are denied dignity, a future and a present. The 10 authors, all from different disciplines, offer their answers to an idea that unites them: the need to position themselves and to act, to become aware and react. For the authors it is necessary that the public is informed and can take action to prevent abuses of the financial, economic and political institutions which are responsible for the crisis. The book's stated purpose is: to defend dignity, democracy and te common good.
