Twilight of Empire
from the description at Perceval Press:
"Now that the Bush administration's occupation of Iraq has become more about enforcing the economic and political objectives of a corporate elite and less about disarming a dictator that used to be an American ally and had nothing to do with the tragedies of 9/11, a spirited and informed analysis of the conflagration -- and its various casualties -- is needed more than ever. Twilight of Empire fulfills that growing hunger for desperately needed on-the-ground truth and context far from the talking-head misinformation offered by conventional media outlets. "
i was searching for some alternatives to the mass media take on current affairs... so i just read the first 1/4 of this book. the book is available (along with some previews of the pages) here (or at your favorite local book store hopefully) (thanks sis! what a valuable gift this turned out to be!)
