“Those who feel that like lemmings they are being led over a cliff would be well-advised not to read this book,” says Noam Chomsky. “They may discover that they are right.”
That book is Hopeless: Barack Obama and the Politics of Illusion, edited by Joshua Frank and Counterpunch’s Jeffrey St. Clair, a compilation of essays on the Obama years just published by AK Press. Touching on everything from drone strikes to bailouts, the book includes a piece by me on the persecution of Bradley Manning. That’s a hint that you should buy it.
