No-holds-barred reporting.-Publishers WeeklyIn communities around the United States, courageous individuals have taken leaps of faith to stop the madness of Washington's wars abroad and at home. In this new Spanish edition, the award-winning sister-brother team of Amy Goodman, host of Democracy Now!, and investigative journalist David Goodman traveled the country to detail the ways in which ordinary citizens-from Connecticut librarians to African Americans fighting for their communities in post-Katrina New Orleans-have taken politics out of the hands of politicians.
Amy Goodman has been confronting the Washington establishment and its corporate sponsors while giving voice to the ordinary citizens and activists who are fighting for a better, more peaceful world. Her daily international radio and TV show, Democracy Now!, began in 1996 and is now carried on more than 500 stations and on http: //www.democracynow.org. David Goodman is an award-winning investigative journalist, author of six books, and a contributing writer for Mother Jones. His articles have appeared in The Washington Post, Outside, The Nation, and numerous other publications. His reporting is included in the American Empire Project book In the Name of Democracy.
