Chris Hedges is an intellectual bomb thrower. The kinds of insights he provides into the troubled state of our democracy cannot be found anywhere else. Like many of our most important thinkers, he has been relegated to the margins because of ideas deemed too radical?or true?for public consumption.

Hedges here speaks up about the most pressing issues currently facing our nation. If we are to combat the intellectual and moral decay that have come to grip American life, we must listen to Chris Hedges and the urgent message he brings in this book.

"A long-running commentary on the many issues Hedges confronts in his writing, including war, Occupy Wall Street, and the New York Times' relationship to organs of state power . . . It's bracing to hear Hedges's unfiltered dissent and disdain, from his dismissal of George W. Bush as 'a man of limited intelligence and dubious morals' to his discussion of how the seductions of celebrity undermined Christopher Hitchens's writing." —Publishers Weekly

"[Hedges] insights and opinions?which have been hard-earned over a tumultuous career of covering war and revolution, suffering and liberation?should be part of our national debate." —David Talbot

"Chris Hedges fearlessly tells his own 'forbidden' stories. . . . The Pulitzer Prize?winning journalist tells how he saw firsthand 'how the elites and the children of the elites treated those 'beneath them.'" —Alternet

"Like early twentieth-century muckraking journalists and, more recently, I.F. Stone, Hedges makes a boisterous outspoken contribution to revolutionizing the national conversation." —Kirkus Reviews

David Talbot is the founder of Salon and author of the New York Times bestseller The Devil’s Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of America’s Secret Government and Brothers: The Hidden History of the Kennedy Years.
