   Not today
The bestselling author of The Best Democracy Money Can Buy offers his most provocative and funniest book yet!

Greg Palast has spent the last thirty years getting the goods on corporate con men and political hucksters. Now he and his special guests cut through the TV news babytalk in Armed Madhouse. Armed with more than fifty classified documents and confidential memos, Palast brings you the stories not allowed in The New York Times, including:

Before invading, George Bush didn't have a secret plan to seize Iraq's oil -- he had two. Palast shows you both.

In "Who's Afraid of Osama Wolf?," Palast reveals the horror and humor of the War on Terror.

In "The Network," Palast gives you the skinny on the new global order -- and pushes Thomas Friedman over the edge of his Flat World.

It was Palast, for BBC TV, who first uncovered how Jeb Bush and Katherine Harris stole Election 2000. Now he tells you that Kerry won in 2004 -- and that 2008 is already fixed.

Who drowned New Orleans? Palast names names -- and adds some suggestions for fighting the new Class War.

Greg Palast speaks truth to power the only way you can -- by letting the facts speak for themselves. Get the straight story on what today's self-appointed Masters of the Universe have in store for you.
