Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0872864820, Paperback)

“Radical in the true sense of the word, [Parenti] digs at the roots which . . . sustain our public consciousness.”—Los Angeles Times Book Review

A powerful selection of Michael Parenti’s most lucid and penetrating writings on real history, political life, empire, wealth, class power, technology, culture, ideology, media, environment, sex, and ethnicity. Also included are a few choice selections drawn from his own life experiences and political awakening. Parenti goes where few political observers dare to tread.

Michael Parenti is the author of eighteen books, including Superpatriotism, Inventing Reality, and The Assassination of Julius Caesar.
