"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
