Book by Barrie Zwicker
A dozen carefully researched books have exposed the official story of 9/11 to be a terror fraud. Yet the mainstream media have monolithically failed to ask elementary questions about anomalies in this story. So-called alternative media have been little better. Towers of Deception: The Media Cover-up of 9/11 explains why and prescribes actions to break out the truth.
Authored by lifelong journalist Barrie Zwicker, who was for thirty-five years a media critic. Towers of Deception provides twenty-six “exhibits” of evidence proving “beyond a reasonable doubt” that 9/11 was an inside job. It then presents case histories of de facto censorship by mainstream media and examines the psychological phenomenon of denial. “False flag” operations and psychological warfare are dealt with in detail, as is the “invisible government”—the powers pulling strings behind the scenes. Following a profile of Dr. David Ray Griffin as an authentic prophet of the 9/11 truth movement, Towers of Deception urges people to speak truth to power and challenge all media.
Review by Jim Miles
This concisely written and well documented work covers the “Truman Doctrine…the essential rubric under which the United States projected its power globally after World War II…the ideological foundation for the “imperial presidency.” Lloyd Gardner focuses his analysis on the Middle East, although the imperial trends expanded globally through the Americas and on into Asia as the old empires faded and the U.S. took their place. More specifically it is a study of “U.S. maneuvers to replace the British in the region of signal importance, the Middle East.” The signal importance of the region contains two factors: oil, the regional resource that enticed the British into the area in the first place; and ‘international communism’ and the rhetorically inflated fears of a grand international conspiracy to attack and dominate the world.
Book review/interview by ZNet
With the recent publication of their new book on the financial crisis and the crisis of the North American Left, In and Out Of Crisis (PM Press, 2010), ZNet took the opportunity to interview Greg Albo, Sam Gindin and Leo Panitch on some of the themes of the book and the struggles that now confront the Left. The authors all teach political economy at York University, and edit the Socialist Register. The Bullet reproduces that interview here.
Can you tell ZNet, please, what In and Out of Crisis: The Global Financial Meltdown and Left Alternatives is about and what is it trying to communicate?
This book departs from the common tendency on the left no less than on the right to judge economic and political developments through the prism of ‘states versus markets,’ with each crisis marking an oscillation between one pole or the other. There are many conceptual and political traps in such a binary opposition. On the one hand, it suggests that markets can be potentially self-sufficient and that somehow states, as the underwriters of a vast administrative and physical infrastructure necessary for markets to exist at all and as guarantors of private property, can be marginalized.

Review by William Hughes
Michael Kimball’s third book, “Dear Everybody,” will kick you hard in the ass! It’s about a disturbed weatherman, Jonathon Bender, age 32, who kills himself. I think the jolts in it come from the fact that you can’t help but identify with his mental decline. Albert Camus, the author of “The Myth of Sisyphus,” and one of Algeria’s finest sons, said: “There is but one truly serious philosophical problem and that is suicide.” The literary device the author uses to tell this tragic and sometimes funny tale of Jonathon’s “short life,” works.
It’s a moving story told from a collection of diary entries; unsent letters; notes on conversations from family, friends and an his ex-wife, Sara; news reports; articles and even Jonathon’s “Last Will and Testament.” They were assembled by his younger brother, Robert, from whom he was estranged, after his death.
Review by William Hughes
If you’re going to write your first novel, and it’s a political spoof, then you might as well as set it in the White House. Well, Ted Venetoulis does exactly that in his “Hail to the Cheat,” which is not only a fun read, I predict it’s going to make one zany movie.
Venetoulis is an author who has lived politics and it shows in his book. The main characters are all credible and taken from that realm. As a young man, Venetoulis worked as a Congressional aide, he was involved in the national presidential campaigns of both Robert F. Kennedy and JFK, and he also served a term as the Baltimore County Executive. Baltimore County is a giant sized suburb of Baltimore City, MD. Spiro T. “Ted” Agnew was once its boss.
Review by Stephen Lendman
Lynn is director of the Markets, Enterprise, and Resiliency Initiative, a senior fellow at the New America Foundation, and author of "Too Big to Fail" about the dangers of monopoly capitalism.
He expands on the threat in his newest book titled, "Cornered: The New Monopoly Capitalism and the Economics of Destruction," explaining today's peril given the power of predatory giants.
They control governments, the courts, war and peace, dominant information sources, and essential services, including health care, air and water, what we eat and drink, where we live, what we wear, and school curricula to the highest levels. They own genetic code patents, basic human life elements to be commodified the same as toothpaste, tomatoes or toilet paper.
Omnipotent, they plunder recklessly, ruthlessly at our expense. They're private tryannies, endangering humanity, basic freedoms, environmental sustainability, and planetary survival. Without exaggeration, they're unaccountable, unchecked "weapons of mass destruction."
