Pub. Date:
Updated election edition.
This book digs deep to unearth the ugly facts that few reporters working anywhere in the world today cover. From East Timor to Waco, Karachi to Santiago, it exposes some of the most egregious cases of political corruption, corporate fraud, and financial manipulation, globally.This collection brings together some of Greg Palast's most powerful and influential writing of the past decade. His columns in the Observer have a cult following and he made headline news when he went undercover to break open the 'Lobbygate' scandal of corruption inside the Blair Cabinet.Included here are his reports on that story, as well as his Washington Post exposé on Jeb Bush and Katherine Harris's stealing of the presidential election in Florida and recent stories on George W. Bush's pay-offs to corporate cronies. Also included in this volume are new and previously unpublished material, television transcripts, photographs, and letters.
