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.
