World According to Tomdispatch by Tom Engelhardt

Book Description

Tomdisaptch.com has established itself as the go-to blog for contemporary US politics, and the favored web platform for radical commentators from Noam Chomsky to Howard Zinn. Its powerful, no-holds-barred features draw a huge response from the public and resonate throughout the global media, acting as a touchpaper for debates which subsequently become headline news. This comprehensive volume offers readers a chance to catch up on some of the finest political analysis of our age, including trenchant accounts of the two Bush administrations' catastrophic imperial adventures in Afghanistan and Iraq; Guantanamo, extraordinary rendition and its apologists; and Hurricane Katrina, global warming, black gold and the rise of Hugo Chavez.Introduced, arranged and with additional commentary throughout by the blog's founder Tom Engelhardt, "The World According to Tomdispatch" is the essential primer for anyone seeking illumination and guidance along the highways and byways of our post-9/11 world.
