Product description

"Please Don't Remain Calm" is a lucid deconstruction of the politics and public figures shaping the social, financial and military disasters of our times. This selection of Michael Kinsley's trenchant editorial writing in "Slate" (and elsewhere) since 1995 covers the end of the Clinton era (Monica, impeachment, etc.) and two terms of George W. Bush (9/11, the War on Terror, Iraq, etc.).During this time Kinsley left Washington for Seattle and founded Slate, was opinion editor of the "Los Angeles Times", underwent brain surgery for Parkinson's disease and had other adventures that are reflected here. Although mostly about politics, there are articles and essays about other things, such as the future of newspapers, the existence of God and why power women love Law and Order. This is the work of a writer at the top of his form. The reader will cherish his sense of humour, which enlivens even the toughest subject matter.
