Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Thieves in High Places, Jim Hightower takes on the Kleptocrats, Wobblycrats, and Bushites with hilarious results. Digging up behind-the-scenes dirt on stories the corporate news media overlooks (and dont get him started on them!), Hightower reveals the real stories behind BushCos "Friday Night Massacres," whats happened to our food, and the Bush plan for empire.

With grassroots solutions, drawing on Hightowers national Rolling Thunder Down- Home Democracy Tour—a traveling festival of rebellion against every tentacle of the corporate-politico power grab—Hightower is tapping into the activist network that is thriving at kitchen tables all over America. This is the real America the rest of the world doesnt get to see, delivered with Hightowers own hilarious brand of wit and outrage.

Book News Annotation:

Not just those in high government, but also corporate CEOs, think-tank pundits, movies stars and directors, and glossy-haired televangelists and news anchors, are telling Americans to grab everything they can get their hands on and protect it behind high walls, says Texan social critic Hightower, but Americans are not thieves and should reclaim not only the government, economy, and all, but the American ethic as well. He remains as humorous as always.
Annotation 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

"Populist radio commentator, columnist, and author Hightower delivers a timely manifesto for progressives living in what he calls a nation ruled by 'a confederacy of kleptocrats.'"--"Publishers Weekly."
