'The Divide': An Important New Book By Leading Political Journalist And Social Critic Matt Taibbi


The Divide: American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap
by Matt Taibbi
Hardcover: 448 pages
Spiegel & Grau.  Released on April 8, 2014


As I've been saying for nearly a decade now: Matt Taibbi is the best damn political journalist in this country and one of the best in the world. He, Paul Krugman, and Frank Rich are three of the very few writers on U.S. political economy today who not only speak real truth to real power all the time but have the knowledge, courage, integrity, and CLARITY to say exactly what needs to be said no matter what anyone else thinks. Born in 1970 Taibbi is that super rare throwback to a time when even this country had a stable of real public intellectuals who were also progressive 'social and economic justice advocates' in the genuine sense of this rapidly evaporating phrase...


PLEASE NOTE: Mr. Taibbi will be appearing and speaking live at the First Congregational Church 2345 Channing Way Berkeley, California on April 12, 2014 at 7:30PM.

Please Attend-- I guarantee you won't regret it...
