I just finished reading an important new book the author's publisher sent me, which I'll shortly be reviewing for publication. The book is investigative journalist (and in his words "forensic economist") Greg Palast's latest foray into exposing the hidden from view crimes and wrongdoings of the Bush administration.

Relentlessly delivering the triphammer blows of a youthful Mike Tyson, America's imperialist ruling class of wealthy and corporate elites has been pummeling the poor, minorities, and the working class with impunity for years.
