Editorial Reviews

Review

"A call for a new American revolution... Like early-20th-century muckraking journalists and, more recently, I.F. Stone, Hedges makes a boisterous, outspoken contribution to revolutionizing the national conversation." Kirkus Reviews

With his usual brilliance and wonderful ability to draw parallels in literature and philosophy, Hedges educates his readers on the historical prerequisites for revolution and signs of degenerating power structures--shot through with inspiring stories, historical details, and quotes that stir blood and imagination. As usual, he understands the power structure that civil society, especially activists, are up against now, and describes it in compelling, expressive detail. His conclusions seem a bit muddled in the last 50 pages, which mayhave been written in haste, with the result that "divine madness" loses its exact meaning and edge.... Hence 4 out of the usual 5 stars.

This review, Might be regarded as cooperation with the power elite, as Amazon wants it to sell more books. But like Hedges, whose act of publishing could also be regarded as capitulation, I give it to encourage people to read the book and to challenge radical evil, the Corporate State.

Chris Hedges is one of the most creative minds in America today. I don't always agree with him. I think he is too negative about the Democratic Party. However, he is right on target in seeing America and the world on a road to disaster if things don't change. I've read most of his books and his columns in Truthdig. The full force of Hedges scorn is directed at the U.S. liberal establishment. He even wrote a book about the "liberal class". Today, we are told that "everybody" in the Democratic Party "must support" Hillary Clinton, the favorite candidate of Wall Street and a leading cheer leader for going to war in Iraq. As Secretary of State Hillary was the leading advocate for America's disastrous military inventions in Libya and Syria. If the Democrats really do nominate Hillary, then Hedges may be right.

Chris Hedges is an experienced journalist who was worked in key trouble spots overseas. Unlike Washington D.C.'s war mongering foreign policy "experts", he actually speaks foreign languages and understands foreign nations.

Buy this book. You may not like a lot of what you read. But this is a creative mind. Hillary is now talking up restarting a new Cold War with Russia. Her key foreign policy advisor, Mr. Kagan, is a close ally of right wing neo conservatives. Iraq cost us $3 trillion and one million dead Iraqi citizens. Hillary's policies have already killed 300,000 in Syria.

America needs more honest people like Hedges. Hopefully, his ideas can save the Democratic Party and the world from Hillary and other war mongers and plutocrats. I would also strongly recommend that people follow his column on Truthdig to keep up on current events.

This is a book everyone should read. I would have loved to have had this book as required reading in college. Lots of history, well documented. I always look for a good Index and bibliography. This book has all that and more. This is a book to be read not only by citizens of the US but the rest of the world as well. Chris Hedges is a highly respected author who researches his books thoroughly. Wages of Rebellion is no exception to that rule. The introduction alone will take your breath away. I'm buying more copies to send to friends and family. Congratulations to Hedges for an excellent book!

EDIT of 11 Aug 2015: Oath Keepers matters and this book by Chris Hedges is a testimonial to the importance of what Oath Keepers represents. Oath Keepers' basic mission: to remind every serving and prior member of every US law enforcement and military and civil service element that they have sworn an Oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. I personally believe that Oath Keepers has made a difference and elevated our consciousness on this point.

I am a huge fan of Chris Hedges and consider Empire of Illusion: The End of Literacy and the Triumph of Spectacle one of his most interesting works, a real complement to David Korten's The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community.

This book can be seen as a logical follow on to The Will to Resist: Soldiers Who Refuse to Fight in Iraq and Afghanistan and Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt, among other works.

This is a five star book with one major point: revolutions don't succeed from mass power, they succeed when mass power is no longer confronted by the armed power of the state because the individual soldiers and police stop defending the status quo.
