Chris Hedges is one of the most articulate and perceptive essayist around. This book is a collection of his columns from Truthdig. It is bracing deeply provocative and necessary. Hedges, a former seminarian, former war correspondent, is a thinker who needs and demands clarity and a true sense of reality. These essays are about the death of an empire and the power of men to do evil. They are important, worth reading and a necessary tonic to the daily stream of inanity that flows from the mass media.
