Radio Morning Show

Greg Palast will speak about his new book:

Armed Madhouse BOOK SIGNING

Palast’s old-style gum-shoe detective work to dig out the info on the War on Terror, greed-dripping schemes to seize little nations with lots of oil, the hidden program to steal the 2008 election, and the media biases that keep it unreported are the meat and bones of this BBC television reporter’s new book. ARMED MADHOUSE is illustrated with dozens of documents marked "secret" and "confidential" that have walked out of file cabinets and fallen into Palast’s hands.

You won’t find Palast in The New York Times (except its bestseller list), but you will read his reports on the hottest Web sites worldwide, hear him regularly on Air America and the Pacifica radio networks, and see his stories reappearing as the basis for Eminem’s hit video "Mosh," Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11, and sampled by a dozen of today’s top platinum rock artists.

John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestseller, "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man" says of ARMED MADHOUSE: "Gripping, provocative, inspiring... a modern Declaration of Independence, this book exposes the abuses of today's global Empire and calls on us to take action. Palast challenges us to replace a system he describes as "un American" with one that will create a sane, equitable, and sustainable world for our children."

“Greg Palast is investigative journalism at its best. No one has exposed more truth about the Bush Cartel and lived to tell the story.” - Baltimore Chronicle

“Don't be fooled by the fact that ARMED MADHOUSE is entertaining -- this is my most serious reporting yet -- connecting oil panic, Hurricane Katrina, Chinese currency, Venezuela's petrodollars, disappearing ballots, Thomas Friedman, more oil, and the murder of General Motors. These are dispatches from the front lines of the class war.” Greg Palast
