Synopsis:

Award-winning investigative journalist Greg Palast digs deep to unearth the ugly facts that few reporters working anywhere in the world today have the courage or ability to cover. From East Timor to Waco, Karachi to Santiago, he has exposed some of the most egregious cases of political corruption, corporate fraud, and financial manipulation, globally. His uncanny investigative skills as well as his acerbic wit and no-holds-barred style have made him an anathema among magnates on four continents and a living legend among his colleagues and his devoted readership, worldwide. / This exciting new collection brings together some of 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 for the Observer to break open the 'Lobbygate' scandal of corruption inside the Blair Cabinet. Included here are his reports on that story, which earned him the distinction of being the first journalist ever to be personally attacked on the floor of Parliament by a prime minister; his celebrated Washington Post exposă on Jeb Bush and Katherine Harris's stealing of the presidential election in Florida, which made him "a legend and a hero on the Internet" (Alan Colmes / Fox Radio) when it ran in Salon.com; and recent stories on George W. Bush's pay-offs to corporate cronies, the payola behind Hillary Clinton and the faux energy crisis. Also included in this volume are new and previously unpublished material, television transcripts, photographs, and letters. Introduction / 1. Jim Crow In Cyberspace - The Unreported Story Of How They Fixed The Vote In Florida / 2. The Best Democracy Money Can Buy / 3. Sell The Lexus, Burn The Olive Tree - Globalization And Its Discontents / 4. Small Towns, Small Minds


Review:

"Palast is known for stripping off polite veneer and showing what's underneath....You'll come away from reading this hard-nosed book dizzy with new information and nauseated by confirmations of your worst fears."

Alice Cherbonnier, Baltimore Chronicle And Sentinel, 06/05/2002
