Impeach the President: Edited by Dennis Loo and Peter Phillips By Ryan

Jun 04, 2007

Collecting a slew of well-written essays, Impeach the President lucidly runs down all the games the Bush-Cheney administration has played—fraudulent voter results (due to “faulty” electronic voting systems) in the 2000, 2002, and 2004 elections; documental fabrications relating to Iraq; the U.S. government’s disinterest in U.N. and global opinion; and the economics involved in the United States’ invasion of Iraq. Impeach the President gains strength in its accessibility: each author’s essay is clearly written; they provide ample background information on topics presented and built, allowing even the most benighted reader to easily follow along. Especially interesting is Kevin Wehr’s piece on Hurricane Katrina which, unlike the war in Iraq, is seldom mentioned in mainstream press, yet is still affecting millions. If you dug Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States or have any interest in preserving humankind and the world, pick this up immediately. –Ryan Leach (Seven Stories Press, 140 Watts Street, New York, NY 10013)
