5.0 out of 5 stars I adore this book, August 28, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Globalistan: How the Globalized World is Dissolving Into Liquid War (Paperback)
There's such a different viewpoint. Even the US professors he quotes are people I've never heard of. And I thought I was well-read, at least by internet standards.

And he's funny. I'm not sure I was expecting that.

Perfect it's not. It reads as if it were written fast. With places that should have been edited. So read it the same way, fast. Stopping at passages that make you think. There are plenty of those, ranging from a discussion of how many suicide bombers are Islamic fundamentalists, (and what they are instead) to asserting that none of us is truly apolitical.

Someone who is a committed neocon or globalist could gain a lot by reading it. And by checking Escobar's facts, reading the people he admires and quotes. Probably so could the rest of us.
