26 Terror-Dot-Gov [MultiFormat]
by Harold Jaffe
  As in Harold Jaffe's two previous "docufiction" collections, False Positive and 15 Serial Killers, the author of Terror-Dot-Gov selects then "treats" his texts such that the reader is incapable of distinguishing between fact and fiction. That ambiguity permits Jaffe to cunningly tease out the contradictions and subtexts of official "news" or "information" and torque it into what it so often is fundamentally: jingoism, xenophobia and propaganda. Jaffe's subject in Terror-Dot-Gov is not the everyw... more info>> (Published: 2005)

28 The Americans: The Democratic Experience [Secure eReader]
by Daniel J. Boorstin
  The third and final volume in Daniel Boorstin's award-winning trilogy, The Americans: The Democratic Experience wraps up his remarkable exploration of the American character. Beginning roughly from the time of the Civil War and ending with the moon landing, The Democratic Experience, like its two predecessors, spends remarkably little time with presidents, senators and famous battles.

30 The Anti-Chomsky Reader [Secure eReader]
by Peter Collier, David Horowitz
  Beginning with his criticism of the Vietnam War in the 1960s, MIT professor Noam Chomsky has become better known for his radical politics than for his theories of language. These essays scrutinize both the theories and the politics: linguists Paul Postal and Robert Levine reevaluate Chomsky's linguistics to find parallels with his politics; scholar Paul Bogdanor explores Chomsky's hatred of Israel; Ronald Radosh and David Horowitz discuss Chomsky's gloating reaction to the September 11 attacks; ... more info>>

31 The Flight of the Intellectuals [Secure eReader]
by Paul Berman
  Twenty years ago, Ayatollah Khomeini called for the assassination of Salman Rushdie--and writers around the world instinctively rallied to Rushdie's defense. Today, according to writer Paul Berman, “Rushdie has metastasized into an entire social class”--an ever-growing group of sharp-tongued critics of Islamist extremism, especially critics from Muslim backgrounds, who survive only because of pseudonyms and police protection. And yet, instead of being applauded, the Rushdies of today... more info>>

  The United States Federal Reserve System has played a key role in U.S. economic affairs since it was established in 1913. Still, it has never enjoyed the unprecedented power and influence it wields today over global financial markets. (Published: 2002)

by John R. Talbott
  America has a problem. The world knows it. Most Americans feel it. What exactly is it? Where America Went Wrong exposes the problem and shows what we must do about it. The problem is that America over the last forty years or so has become increasingly more undemocratic. Our government is dominated by powerful special interests, especially corporate interests that have gained untrammeled dominance over American life.
