Generation of Swine,
the second volume of the legendary Dr. Hunter S. Thompson’s bestselling Gonzo
Papers, was first published in 1988 and is now back in print.
Here, against a backdrop of late-night tattoo sessions and
soldier-of-fortune trade shows, Dr. Thompson is at his apocalyptic best—covering
emblematic events such as the 1987–88 presidential campaign, with Vice
President George Bush, Sr., fighting for his life against Republican
competitors like Alexander Haig, Pat Buchanan, and Pat Robertson; detailing the
GOP’s obsession with drugs and drug abuse; while at the same time capturing
momentous social phenomena as they occurred, like the rise of cable, satellite
television, and CNN—twenty-four hours of mainline news. Showcasing his
inimitable talent for social and political analysis, Generation of Swine is vintage Thompson—eerily prescient, incisive,
and enduring. Download and start listening now!
