Editorial Reviews

Review

“It stands to reason that Eliot Weinberger, an old Borges hand, should be so adept at teasing out the nightmarish, nearly phantasmagoric dimensions of our country’s post-9-11 situation--rich with ironies we might begin to enjoy, if we weren’t busy biting our nails to the quick.. . . . For Weinberger, the current administration is the country-s true sleeper cell, with Bush and bin Laden twinned not just by well-oiled family wealth but as men ‘cut off from the world, one in a cave and one on a ranch in the middle of nowhere; one who reads no books and the other who presumably reads one book.’. . . His acid Baedeker illustrates what Geoffrey O’Brien noted . . . that close reading is mandatory in the fallen world."
(Ed Park Village Voice Literary Supplement)

“Weinberger focuses on how the ‘White House Team’ has both presented and used the events of 11 September to re-shape American policy and foist it on the American people. The President is not solely to blame; as he sees it, ‘George Bush has exactly the same relationship to the policies of his government as Britney Spears does to the operation of the Pepsi Corporation’, and Weinberger usefully reminds readers of the backgrounds and histories of various actually dominant figures in the generally shadowy background. . . . <I>9/12<I> is a polemic, and there will be those who disagree with how Weinberger sees things; the U.S as Banana Republic isn’t an idea a large part of the population will likely even want to consider (though Weinberger makes a nice case for it).”
(The Complete Review)

Weinberger is one of my favorite essayists. He will skewer anyone and do so with absolute style. He is not a "crrrritic" so much as a commentator. So 9/12. It is frightening to read your own fears mirrored in someone else, to be able to vocalize terror at one's own government. Oddly, the most frightening portrait is not of Bush, that weak-minded tool of his own advisors, but of Condie Rice as "Xena, Warrior Princess." We are in huge trouble here. Indeed we need regime change here as it was needed in Iraq (no, I don't think Saddam was bum-rapped: he was a monster)--but the mood of the nation has been so manipulated that it's unlikely a change will occur back toward the left in my lifetime. I'm 61...and I hear the marching charging feet (yeah).

Read this little book. Be afraid.

Format: Paperback
Inevitably, essays on 9/11 written in the days and weeks afterward suffer from the passage of time and new facts and information. These ruminations seem horribly stale and somewhat knee-jerk leftist. The essayist isn't just a poor man's Howard Zinn, but a very, very poor man's Howard Zinn. (And I like Howard Zinn.) Why do we care about his ruminations, again? He's a translator and editor of Latin American and Chinese poetry and prose. I'm not sure his thoughts on 9/11 are worth much more than my dog groomer's.

Have read enormous amounts on this topic. This is by far the weakest, least informative, most useless material available. Don't bother.
