`Razor sharp research ... shows why every US citizen should be quaking in their boots' Metro, Books of the Year `Bill Hicks with a press pass' The ListAward-winning guerrilla journalist Greg Palast has gone where most have been too scared to unearth the ugly truth about the haves and have-mores who rule our world ... America. Here he reports from behind enemy lines to reveal just how bad it's got in a dangerous regime: how elections are bought and free speech comes at a price. How citizens are ruled by fear. And how our brave new globalized world means the poor get hammered, while corporations silently buy up the planet. It's not pretty - but it's all true ... `Palast is one of the few journalists writing who has both the anger and the wit to offer himself up as a persuasive - and more importantly, readable - voice of the left' Observer`A rollercoaster ride from Baghdad to New Orleans and Osama bin Laden's cave to the back rooms of the Pentagon' Big Issue `Very funny ... For anyone who thinks that no-one from the US knows what's going on, Palast is the perfect riposte' Guardian

Review quote

I urge you: read Palast's latest book, "Armed Madhouse". The story is like a spy thriller. (Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., on "Air America Radio")
