Greg Palast, "the greatest investigative reporter of our time" and a legend among journalists on four continents, has single-handedly broken some of the most scandalous stories of the past decade.
These iconoclastic exposes - along with groundbreaking reports on the World Bank, the IMF, the World Trade Organizatin, Wal-Mart, Pat Robertson, and more - are included in this provocative collection of Palast's most incendiary stories. Now update and revised, these reports offer a shocking portrait of corrupt power and politics in today's global economy. Full of the acerbic wit that has made Palast public enemy #1 among magnates and money-poisoned politicans, this book is required reading anyone who believes that the First Amendment is important enough to use and that democracy cannot be brought.

The title says it all. It's an interesting read; much of it was stuff that I was already aware of, but if you're in the mood to be depressed about your government this is the read for you.
