A People's History of the United States: From 1492 to the Present
A People's History of the United States: From 1492 to the Present
"Well why mess about to start with? The History of the United State that the United States doesn't want you to read. Hit the scene in 1980, Second Edition unlikely to please any Presidents thereafter."
The Communist Manifesto (Classics)
The Communist Manifesto (Classics)
"You can't tamper with a classic, and most certainly not with one as surprisingly accesible to the learner leftie as this. Not that it's halted 150 plus years of people's trying, mind."
No Logo
No Logo
"A book that leaves the ''Brand'' phenomena in tatters; whilst anti-globalisation protestors tear down corporation buildings, Klein tears out their still beating hearts. An absolute piledriver."
Homage to Catalonia (Penguin Modern Classics)
Homage to Catalonia (Penguin Modern Classics)
"Yeah, Animal Farm and 1984 sure are incredible. But for a compellingly wretched insight into the utter hopelessness of war, Orwell's first hand account of the Spanish civil war is hard to beat."
The Bang-Bang Club: Snapshots from a Hidden War
The Bang-Bang Club: Snapshots from a Hidden War
"Substitute Franco's Spain for Apartheid South Africa, volunteer fighters for war photographers, and this is as close as anyone has come to a latter-day account worthy of Orwell. A hidden gem."
The State We're In: (Revised Edition): Why Britain Is in Crisis and How to Overcome It
The State We're In: (Revised Edition): Why Britain Is in Crisis and How to Overcome It
"No amount of spin will pull the wool back over your eyes after this one. The contemporary Britain that Blair thought he'd buried with his principles."
Rogue States: The Rule of Force in World Affairs
Rogue States: The Rule of Force in World Affairs
"So many offerings, which one to choose? As good a place as any to start with Chomsky. The alphabet of Western war crimes, and unfortunately for the perpetrators printed in the English tongue to boot."
Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media
Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media
"The genetics of media collusion in, camouflage and validation of State activities outlined amply above. A must for anyone who thinks what they see is what they get."
Hidden Agendas
Hidden Agendas
"Whilst Chomsky et al are the cartographers uncovering the hidden world map, Pilger is the tour guide here walking you through it. An investigative hack of supreme experience and talent."
On Liberty and Other Essays (Oxford World's Classics)
On Liberty and Other Essays (Oxford World's Classics)
"Mill's Utilitarianism is his most important work. But when those nice folks at OUP serve up three other groundbreaking Essays to boot, you don't hang about waiting for a woman's right to vote."
The Social Contract (Classics)
The Social Contract (Classics)
"''Man was born free, and he is everywhere in chains'' Till anyone again lands as powerful a literary knockout as that with their first punch, Rousseau's misunderstood masterpiece will just have to do."
Lord of the Flies
Lord of the Flies
"So you read it in 3rd Year of Secondary School. Read it again, only this time because you want to."
Rage Against The Machine - The Battle Of Mexico City [DVD]
Rage Against The Machine - The Battle Of Mexico City [DVD]
"Ok, so not a book. But what the hey, even if you don't like RATM (which you really should, though) the special features stand alone. I mean, you gotta be good live to have Chomsky as support act."
Deschooling Society (Open Forum)
Deschooling Society (Open Forum)
"Forget everything you thought you were taught. Forget everything you thought you knew full stop as a consequence."
Captive State: The Corporate Takeover of Britain
Captive State: The Corporate Takeover of Britain
"Similar to 'No Logo', only with particular emphasis on Britain. Similarly brilliant, really."
Companero: The Life and Death of Che Guevara
Companero: The Life and Death of Che Guevara
"Cuts through the cr/\p that invariably surrounds this wonderful individual. Beautiful account by a close friend; a compulsory read for every suburban revolutionary with Ché t-shirt tucked into Levi's."
The Trial of Henry Kissinger
The Trial of Henry Kissinger
"Woah! Truly astonishing stuff. Countless other books, some even listed here, capture amply the inherent hypocrisy of the Dictatorship of the West. None lend so personal an angle as this though."
Animal Farm: A Fairy Story
Animal Farm: A Fairy Story
"Homage to Catalunya is my own favourite Orwell, but that's kinda like choosing your favourite child; pointless. Can't say anything that already hasn't been. Animals know so much."
The Hand of God: The Life of Diego Maradona
The Hand of God: The Life of Diego Maradona
"Unpolitical? Perhaps, though you'd be surprised at a passage or ten. Overall though, an astonishing insight into the devastatingly corrupt agents lurking wherever God-given genius rears its head."
You Are Being Lied To: The Disinformation Guide to Media Distortion, Historical Whitewashes and Cultural Myths
You Are Being Lied To: The Disinformation Guide to Media Distortion, Historical Whitewashes and Cultural Myths
"Oh yes you are, you know. A veritable who's who of dissidence, over 400 pages. Hard to digest, granted, but not half as hard as swallowing half the nonsense the book aims to expose."
