Noise is usually defined as an unwanted sound: loud music from a neighbor, the honk of a taxicab, the roar of a supersonic jet. But noise is just as much about what we want as what we seek to avoid. In The Unwanted Sound of Everything We Want, Garret Keizer examines how we hear the world, and how we measure our own personal volume within it. He follows noise throughout history and across the globe - from the primeval Tanzanian veldt to wind farms in Maine - and considers what it has to tell us about today's most pressing issues, from social inequality to climate change.
