Drawing on two decades of experience as a war correspondent and based on his numerous columns for Truthdig, Chris Hedges presents The World As It Is, a panorama of the American empire at home and abroad, from the coarsening effect of America's War on Terror to the front lines in the Middle East and South Asia and the continuing Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Underlying his reportage is a constant struggle with the nature of war and its impact on human civilization. "War is always about betrayal," Hedges notes. "It is about betrayal of the young by the old, of cynics by idealists, and of soldiers and Marines by politicians. Society's institutions, including our religious institutions, which mold us into compliant citizens, are unmasked."… (mere)

Chris Hedges graduated from Starr King and Harvard Divinity, and joined the international press corp as a journalist for major newspapers, including the Dallas, and NYTimes. As a war correspondent his life was at risk. He now writes columns for Truthdig, and this book is a collection of those columns. Chris Hedges presents the panorama of the American empire at what we now see was its peak just before the Bush Administration destroyed it.

He documents fact that "America's War on Terror" has made enemies, done little to protect people, and has served to enrich the plutocracy.

Hedges speaks as an eyewitness -- from front lines in Central America, Africa, the Middle East and South Asia and the continuing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

War lovers will find his reports disappointing because they are accurate. He reports on the nature of war and its impact on human civilization. "War is always about betrayal," Hedges notes. "It is about betrayal of the young by the old, of cynics by idealists, and of soldiers and Marines by politicians. Society's institutions, including our religious institutions, which mold us into compliant citizens, are unmasked." ( )

My good friend, the author and journalist Stephen Kinzer, once said to me, half in jest: "You're not a journalist. You're a minister pretending to be a journalist."
