Editorial Reviews

Review

"Proof of the indelible power of . . . detailed nonfiction storytelling." —Washington City Paper

"It’s always exciting to see collections like these come out, if only for the fact that they highlight some of the best, most entertaining journalism ever written." —The Millions

"Admirable. . . . The selections are tightly and sometimes masterfully written." —Austin Chronicle

"An often-witty and engaging collection, proof positive that there are still reporters who prod, dig and poke. Not content to be embedded or press-release-driven, these journalists exemplify what it means to be intrepid investigators and inquisitors of power, whether personal or political." —The Indypendent

"A great anthology, chock full of fantastic articles." —Good

"This collection should be read by any student who aspires to the true art of journalism, as well as anyone who wants to learn more about what really goes on in American politics—and society—today." —Library Journal

"A terrific retrospective collection." —Booklist

"Although these are nonfiction contributions, they often read like literature." —The Brooklyn Rail

Format: Hardcover
Brilliant collection from a brilliant periodical. Some of the articles expose such venality that you may become mad enough to spit. Especially scintillating is Ken Silverstein's expose on the lobbyists who were eager to help his (imaginary) firm cover up human rights abuses in Central Asia for the opportunity to exploit natural resources... for a price, of course. It just doesn't stop in this country, does it. Kudos to Harper's and to the New Press.

Only gripe: with the exception of Barbara Ehrenreich's ground-breaking reporting on minimum-wage workers (which later became the classic "Nickel and Dimed: On Not Getting By in America"), there are no women journalists included here. What, do women not do submersion journalism? If not, we need to get cracking!

had to order 2 of these books as the first book ordered at 24 cents was a book with the correct cover but the materials inside was for another book, don't know if this wasn't checked by the shipper or if he intentionally did this. In class everyone was discussing 1st section and I couldn't understand what they were talking about, checked their book with mine and found the problem and had to purchase a second book.

I read this book for an English class and had to write my views and how they compared to those of the writers. You can learn a lot about yourself and about the journalistic view by reading this book.
