Award-winning investigative journalist Greg Palast digs deep to unearth the ugly facts that few reporters working anywhere in the world today have the courage or ability to cover. From East Timor to Waco, he has exposed some of the most egregious cases of political corruption, corporate fraud, and financial manipulation in the US and abroad. His uncanny investigative skills as well as his no-holds-barred style have made him an anathema among magnates on four continents and a living legend among his colleagues and his devoted readership.

This exciting collection, now revised and updated, brings together some of Palast’s most powerful writing of the past decade. Included here are his celebrated Washington Post exposé on Jeb Bush and Katherine Harris’ stealing of the presidential election in Florida, and stories on George W. Bush’s payoffs to corporate cronies, the payola behind Hillary Clinton, and the faux energy crisis.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Clayton | 2/11/2014

    " Crazy amounts of inside info from this investigative reporter. I'm no conspiracy theorist, but his details on the vote fraud in Florida in 2000 are pretty convincing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Erika | 2/5/2014

    " For me, his tabloid style is a drawback. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Amy | 1/31/2014

    " Palast is the kind of journalist we need more (or, really, any) of these days -- fearless and angry but always set on uncovering the truth. His meticulous description of Jeb Bush and Katherine Harris systematically disenfranchising thousands of Florida voters before the 2000 election will break your heart. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Mary Ann | 1/26/2014

    " Read this book, if you want to know what really happened in the 2000 Presidential Election; Palast broke the story of how the Republicans stole the election from Al Gore in Florida. He is one of my heroes. "
