talk & booksigning for "How to Rule the World"
Monday, May 5 at 7:00 pm
“As the world readies to heave a collective sigh of relief upon George W. Bush's exit from the White House, "How to Rule the World" is a caution against complacency. Mark Engler offers a timely reminder that before Bush's boots and bombs there was Clinton's corporate 'consensus' - more soothing perhaps but no more sustainable than the neocons’ disastrous militarism. He then makes a case that there lies a third choice: democracy. Impressively researched and sharply argued, "How to Rule the World" is an essential handbook not for the few who do rule the world but for the many who should.” - Greg Grandin, author of "Empire's Workshop"
