Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this increasingly illiterate age of sound bites and the short attention span, AK Press Audio presents the finest of informative, challenging and radical ideas in a user-friendly shiny plastic compact disc format. Whether you are stuck in the morning commute, or relaxing after a hard day staring at the infernal computer screen, AK Audio delivers the best minds of today's (and yesterday's) generation of activists and scholars in an accessible format. Since the debut of the first three Noam Chomsky lectures in 1995, AK Audio has provided professionally recorded, edited and refined programs for your listening pleasure and education — welcome to the world of audio agit-prop.

This is a "wittiest of" maverick commentator Alexander Cockburn's recent talks. Whether he's skewering the fallacies of the drug war or illuminating the dark crevices of secret government, his erudite and extemporaneous style warms the hearts of even the stodgiest cynics of the left.

Synopsis:

Love him or hate him, Cockburn can inspire, annoy and entertain any audience.

Alexander Cockburn writes a weekly column for The Nation and is the founding editor of the bi-monthly journal Counterpunch. His books include Whiteout: The CIA Drugs and The Press, Five Days That Shook the World, Corruptions of Empire and Washington Babylon.

Synopsis:

Cultural Writing. Multimedia. CD format. Conversation. Alexander Cockburn is one of the Left's best-known journalists. He writes a weekly column for The Nation, The New York Press and the Anderson Valley Advertiser, and is also founding editor of the bi-monthly journal Counterpunch. In this collection of recent talks, Cockburn defiles subjects ranging from Columbia to the American presidency to the Missile Defense System. Whether he's skewering the fallacies of the war on drugs or illuminating the dark crevices of secret government, his erudite and extemporaneous style warms the hearts of even the stodgiest critics of the left. On Seattle: "Seattle caught the ruling class by surprise. They lost control and for once it all worked. So because of this, people think we can do it again and again-we can shut down something like the World Trade Organization. But the ruling class notices when they fuck up."
