From the people who brought us You Are Being Lied To, here is another engrossing and infuriating compilation of muckraking articles, expos s, and provocative claims. Some of the pieces in the book are very timely: an assertion that the government had advance warning of the September 11 terrorist attacks, reports of additional gunmen at Columbine High School, and additional details on Senator Bob Kerrey's actions in Vietnam. Most of the articles were written for this volume, though some appeared previously in reputable magazines and journals (e.g., the Village Voice, Toronto Globe & Mail, and Journal of Medical Ethics). Not all the pieces deal with political issues; readers will find a wide range of social ("Mad Cow Disease"), financial ("World Bank and the WTO"), and cultural topics. A few familiar names appear among the contributors (Howard Zinn, Paul Krassner), but most are investigative reporters not well known to the public. This contrarian collection will attract a diverse readership from conspiracy nuts to academics and is recommended for most public libraries. Thomas A. Karel, Franklin & Marshall Coll. Lib., Lancaster, PA

Top customer reviews
In this book, you will learn about everything-from Olympic Industry Mythology to the underlying conspiracy evidence of the 9-11 attacks. You will discover - as you never have before - such subjects as: pornography, prostitution, labor history, mushroom clouds, Pan Am flight 103, Waco, nuclear power, interesting true crime stories, globalization's dirty money, TV addiction, domestic violence, religion and feminism, the European Union, corporate watchdogs, Delta Force and Army Ranger Commando ops, drug companies, Osama Bin Laden, "Kadaffi," and the emergence of China as global economic big boy, among other things.
Perhaps the best thing about this book is not its depth and range - neither of which are lacking - but its ability to unearth new facts and perspectives, and present them in straight-forward, no-nonsense language. If you are trying to break through the mainstream "multimedia megaplexed info-flood" and discover an alternative (and equally believable) version of what is real, this latest disinfo guidebook will serve as a terrific companion. By simply reading the book, you too will become a disinfobot. For further information, articles, and access to the occult Disinfo Chat House... where you can fly your freak flag as high as the sky.
