“The implied narrative of this collection is the journalist’s background, the imperial myths that helped to shape him, the impulse to exile and his encounter with the Reagan era. The background, the myths and the impulse to exile form the first three sections of this book, whose overall architecture will, I hope, give some sense of the terms in which I have viewed my trade.”—Alexander Cockburn, from the introduction

About the Author:

Alexander Cockburn co-edits CounterPunch with Jeffrey St. Clair. Together they have written Whiteout: The CIA, Drugs and the Press and A Dime’s Worth of Difference: Beyond the Lesser of Two Evils.

From Library Journal:

The first 40 pages of this hefty selection of published political journalism and cultural observations focus on Cockburn's English roots. What follows is a barrage of criticism directed at the American Establishmentpress, television, government, and literaturefrom a perspective that mixes New Left pieties and platitudes with righteous indignation and tasteless sarcasm. Cockburn attacks Gay Talese, the Wheel of Fortune TV show, Baden-Powell (founder of the Boy Scouts), and the MacNeil-Lehrer Report. His sharp stings and mordant wit will convince few beyond the already converted, but most readers will find something entertaining in this potpourri. Jack Forman, Mesa Coll. Lib., San Diego
