D'you guys know TomDispatch? Verso are publishing The World According to TomDispatch: America and the Age of Empire in July and it looks pretty good.
TomDispatch styles itself as a regular antidote to the mainstream media and says it is written "for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of our post-9/11 world and a clear sense of how our imperial globe actually works." Well, goodness knows we always need a bit more of that, but I must admit I hadn't come across the site until t'other day. Anyway, looks good as I say: go read!
