Alexander Cockburn: How To Change The World, In Six Easy Lessons
Alexander Cockburn, noted author and columnist, will reveal “How to Change the World, In Six Easy Lessons” on Friday, May 20, 2005 at 7 p.m. at the Coloma Community Center Auditorium, 4623 T Street, Sacramento.
Born and raised in Ireland, Cockburn has lived in the United States since 1973. Across two decades he has established a reputation as one of the foremost reporters and commentators of the left. Cockburn’s areas of interest include the political scene, economics, the environment, labor issues and international policy.
He is co-editor with Jeffrey St. Clair of the twice-monthly muckraking newsletter CounterPunch, whose web site, http://www.counterpunch.org, now has an audience in the millions. The author of a bi-weekly column for The Nation called “Beat the Devil.” Cockburn also writes a syndicated newspaper column that is distributed nationally.
In 1987, Cockburn wrote a highly successful collection of essays, some autobiographical, entitled Corruptions of Empire, for which he was called the “most gifted polemicist now writing in English” by the Times Literary Supplement.
More recently he has coauthored, with Jeffrey St. Clair, the best-selling “Whiteout: the Press, Drugs and the CIA”; “The Politics of Anti-Semitism”; “Imperial Crusades: Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq”; “Serpents in the Garden: Essays on Culture and Sex”; and “Dimes Worth of Difference: Beyond the Lesser of Two Evils.” He lives in Humboldt County in Northern California.
