    From the celebrated author of War Is A Force That Gives Us Meaning, this startling expose is now available in paperback. Having spent time among the Christian Right in various venues, Hedges has chronicled their world with a keen eye and the parallels he draws between their movement and Fascist movements of the past raises more than eyebrows. Describing themselves as true patriots, they wrap themselves in the flag - but all it might take is one more national crisis like 9/11 for the Christian Right to seize power and reveal themselves for what they truly are - the American heirs to Fascism. 256p.

  • Death of the Liberal Class

    By Chris Hedges

    • Format: Audio/CD

    • Published: October 2010
    The liberal class plays a vital role in a democracy, and posits itself as the conscience of the nation. It permits us to define ourselves as a good and noble people. Most importantly, the liberal class offers a safety valve for popular frustrations and discontentment by discrediting those who talk of profound structural change. Once this class loses its role, then democracy breaks down and the liberal class becomes an object of ridicule and hatred. The Death of the Liberal Class examines the failure of the liberal class to confront the rise of the corporate state and the consequences of a bankrupt liberalism, making the liberal class irrelevant to society at large and ultimately the corporate power elite they once served.

    A striking and unsettling exploration of illusion and fantasy in contemporary American culture. Traveling to the ringside of professional wrestling bouts at Madison Square Garden, to Las Vegas to write about the pornographic film industry, and to academic conferences held by positive psychologists - who claim to be able to engineer happiness - Hedges chronicles 'our terrifying flight as a culture into a state of illusion.' He exposes the mechanisms used to divert the confrontation with the economic, environmental, political, and moral collapse surrounding American society. Positing that a culture that cannot distinguish between reality and illusion dies, Hedges argues we are dying now. Notes, Bibliography, Index. 232p.

    Under the George W. Bush administration, the United States experienced an intensification of predatory, economic, and political conditions that have undermined democracy and helped turn the welfare state into the warfare and torture state, argues Giroux (English and cultural studies, McMaster U., Canada), who offers his thoughts on how this process occurred and the dangers it poses while focusing on the most abominable category of acts carried out and normalized in this new era of legalized state violence: the torture of children. In his conclusion, he explores the actions that President Obama could take if he truly wished to reverse this dreadful tide. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    Critiques the radical mindset that rages against religion and faith, and identifies the pillars of the new atheist belief system, revealing that the stringent rules and rigid traditions in place are as strict as those of any religious practice. The new atheists, led by Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens and Sam Harris, do not make moral arguments about religion. Rather, they have created a new form of fundamentalism that attempts to permeate society with ideas about our own moral superiority and the omnipotence of human reason. Journalist Hedges makes a case against both religious and secular fundamentalism.--From amazon.com.
