The U.S. War Against Iraq: Myths, Facts, and Lies
At few times in recent history have we seen a war so insistently and openly signaled as the U.S.'s looming war on Iraq. According to Rahul Mahajan, the coming war is a culmination of a process that the United States started with the Gulf War, where Iraq was made into a permanent target and pariah state. Mahajan argues that the Bush administration's post-September 11 policy toward Iraq is neither about controlling weapons of mass destruction nor fighting terrorism, but about consolidating U.S. control of oil reserves and dominance in the Middle East. Despite the prospects that attacking Iraq could quickly escalate into wider regional war and lead to further terrorist attacks, the Bush administration insists that violence is our only option. Mahajan cuts through the comic-book language of President Bush's "Axis of Evil" rationale, and presents a much-needed examination of the myths, facts, and history behind the U.S.'s pitch to start another war.

The Threatening Storm: The Case for Invading Iraq
Pollack criticizes and praises views from both left and right stances.
From the Back Cover
"One of the most important books on American foreign policy in years. There is no greater strategic challenge than Iraq, and nobody better qualified to tackle it than Kenneth Pollack. To have such comprehensive, high-quality professional analysis available publicly and in real time is simply extraordinary. From now on, all serious debate over how to handle Saddam starts here."
-Gideon Rose, Managing Editor, Foreign Affairs

War on Iraq: What Team Bush Doesn't Want You To Know
1. There is no basis for war. 2. Removing Saddam Hussein is pointless given the political environment in Iraq. If the first basis is removed (i.e., reintroduction of arms inspectors) the second will become Team Bush's focus. The resulting conflict will not be a televised in-and-out affair like the Persian Gulf War; there will be heavy casualties on both sides, a complete destabilization of the Middle East, and a terrible backlash of terrorist attacks on the U.S.--exactly the kind of Islam vs. the West that al-Qaeda wants.

Forbidden Truth: U.S.-Taliban Secret Oil Diplomacy, Saudi Arabia and the Failed Search for bin Laden

There's been a lot of prepublication buzz about this book, especially on the Web. A best-seller in Europe and banned in Switzerland (because of a bin Laden lawsuit), this first American edition links the events of September 11 to pipeline politics, especially as practiced by the Bush administration. Although these sorts of charges have been made in a general way, the authors have collected a great deal of information, all footnoted. Brisard and Dusquie investigated for three years.

Bias: A CBS Insider Exposes How the Media Distort the News
In his nearly thirty years at CBS News, Emmy Award- winner Bernard Goldberg earned a reputation as one of the preeminent reporters in the television news business. When he looked at his own industry, however, he saw that the media far too often ignored their primary mission: objective, disinterested reporting. Again and again he saw that they slanted the news to the left. For years Goldberg appealed to reporters, producers, and network executives for more balanced reporting, but no one listened

Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace
Vidal couldn't find an English-language publisher for the first essay in this collection, his response to September 11, until it became a best-seller in Italy. He argues that Osama bin Laden's attack on America pales in comparison to the government's attack on American civil liberties since September 11. Vidal views the un-winnable wars on terrorism and drugs as the government's excuse to implement a police state, which he repeatedly compares to Nazi Germany. 

The Immaculate Deception: The Bush Crime Family Exposed

You will learn about the unsavory past of George Bush and his family, and well as the unscrupulous activities in which he has been involved.

Into the Buzzsaw: Leading Journalists Expose the Myth of a Free Press
The buzzsaw, explains Borjesson, is what journalists encounter when they attempt to reveal information that the nation's "large institutions-be they corporate or government-" prefer to keep secret. She presents 18 firsthand accounts by authors and print and television producers and reporters who challenged the media structure, often with devastating results to their careers.

Wealth and Democracy: A Political History of the American Rich
The influence of money on government is now, more then ever, a hot political issue. With a grand historical sweep that covers more than three centuries, Phillips's astute analysis of the effects of wealth and capital upon democracy is both eye-opening and disturbing. While his main thrust is an examination of "the increasing reliance of the American economy on finance," Phillips weaves a far wider, nuanced tapestry. Carefully building his arguments with telling detail.

Blinded by the Right: The Conscience of an Ex-Conservative
When Brock was a freshman at the University of California at Berkeley in 1981, his political idol was Bobby Kennedy. Four years later, he was a committed conservative who idolized Oliver North and Robert Bork. In this book, Brock chronicles the political round trip back to his more liberal roots. Along the way, he earned the adoration of the extreme right, even after he acknowledged that he was gay...
