5.0 out of 5 stars GORE VIDAL IS BACK!, 25 Jun. 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Imperial America: Reflections on the United States of Amnesia (Paperback)
Having read Vidal's other recent books of essays (Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace and Dreaming War), I was keen to get this one. Actually, it stands alone - and you don't need to have read the other books. This doesn't disappoint, and Vidal is as witty, learned and insightful as ever. He kicks off with two brand new pieces on baddie Bush. The second, 'The Privatizing of the American Election', is quite shocking, and includes information I haven't seen elsewhere. Apparently the present administration has been replacing all voting machines with sophisticated computer technology. The snag is that the company who own the software contribute to the Republican party, and if anything goes wrong with the software only they are allowed to check it. This means: no Florida chads, no recounts, no real checking of votes. If this sounds dodgy to you, read this book and stay informed before Mr Blair tries to introduce it here...
