Product Details

Praise

“Like Adorno, Cockburn’s province is the consciousness of industry, and if, unlike Adorno, he isn’t mournful, then so much the better … He is one of the few journalists in America, given that most of them tend to report either each word or what is acceptable to policy-makers.”—Edward Said, London Review of Books

“Probably the most gifted polemicist writing in English today.”—Times Literary Supplement

“Never less than ferociously entertaining.”—Publishers Weekly

“Outspoken, intellectual, uncompromising, combative, witty and incapable of hiding his contempt for the powers that be.”—Utne Reader

“Snobbish, funny, brutal and nostalgic.”—Los Angeles Times
