    • The World According to TomDispatch: America and the Age of Empire (2008) edited by Tom Engelhardt

TomDispatch's powerful, no-holds-barred essays resonate throughout the global online media. This comprehensive volume offers readers a chance to sample some of the finest political analysis of our age, focused on the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the US offshore Bermuda Triangle of injustice from Guantamano to the CIA "black sites," not to speak of extraordinary rendition, the response to Hurricane Katrina, global warming, Iraq's black gold and the energy crisis, and, above all, the Bush administration's misbegotten "smash of civilizations." Introduced and edited by TomDispatch's creator Tom Engelhardt, The World According to TomDispatch is an essential primer for anyone seeking guidance along the highways and byways of our post 9/11 world.

Greenberg, Mike Davis, Michael Klare, Adam Hochschild, Dahr Jamail, Arlie Hochschild, Bill McKibben, Judith Coburn, John Brown, Dilip Hiro, Rasha Salti, Michael Schwartz, Behzad Yaghmaian, Ann Jones, Chad Heeter, Nick Turse, Ira Chernus, Steve Fraser, David Rosner, Gerald Markowitz, and Tom Engelhardt.
