"Indicative of the longtime war correspondent's experienced eye and commitment to social justice...[Hedges'] descriptions of the dangers of American 'political passivity' deserve careful consideration along with much else in these powerfully written pages" -Publishers Weekly, starred review"

Its basically a collection of writings from his website/blog of which he did about one a month. Some of the best writing and expression/expose' of what is wrong with our country and the world out there.
As far as whether or not what he says is true, you will need to ascertain that for yourself.
Here's something I noticed. Some of the writings were back in 2010 yet they predict the rise of Donald Trump, and other things that are going on. So that in itself lends itself to the validity of those arguments it seems. Scary. History does repeat itself at times.
But the best part of this book. It reveals and talks about things that the night news/media would DARE NOT give you.
This is a 'Must Read' for anybody who cares about our county's future.
social dilemmas that confront the human community, this book is a must. It challenges the reader to ask: "What can I do in my local situation that might make a difference in our world?" The writer is radical in his perceptions and candid in his analysis. Nevertheless, the book leaves the reader with hope. I
recommend this book.
