MARK DANNER
“Stripping Bare the Body” Politics, Violence, War
Hosted by Brian Edwards-Tiekert

“There’s probably no one alive who understands political conflict and upheaval better than Mark Danner, and there is certainly no one who writes more eloquently about it. Stripping Bare the Body is an unmitigated masterpiece of reporting and analysis.” — Dave Eggers

“With this vivid and deeply disturbing book, Mark Danner affirms his standing as our preeminent guide to the world’s broken places, littered with the detritus of American carelessness and delusions.” — Andrew Bacevich

“The publication of Mark Danner’s Stripping Bare the Body is a big deal – an event. Why? Because Danner’s writing over the past three decades, taken together, forms a definitive, and absolutely riveting, chronicle of the dark side of the post-cold-war world, from Haiti to Abu Ghraib and beyond. No other writer we have combines brilliant and courageous reporting with brilliant and courageous political and moral thinking as Danner does. He is also, first and last, a breathtakingly good writer. For anyone who cares about the fate of our foreign policy and our republic, and indeed, the human condition, Stripping Bare the Body is a touchstone book.”
— Michael Pollan

“This is reporting at its best… “Stripping Bare the Body” ought to be read by those who still see our wars as moral crusades. They may learn from its pages how so many ungrateful beneficiaries of our largesse are willing to blow themselves up in order to do us harm, and why wars based on delusions only lead to more delusions and more wars…Fascinating!” —New York Review of Books

Stripped bare and vividly told, here is America’s true “life beneath the skin – the shocking, brutal underside of what Danner calls “a grim age, still infused with the remnant perfume of imperial dreams.”
