Blurb:

Profiles in Dissent is a collection of remarkably fresh and provocative interviews with some of the iconoclastic thinkers and activists of our time. These candid conversations — ranging from Howard Zinn to Chalmers Johnson, Cindy Sheehan to Mike Davis, Ann Wright, who retired from the State Department to protest the Iraqi invasion and became “a felon for peace,” to Boston Globe columnist James Carroll — focus on the Bush administration’s imperial dreams and ham-handed acts. They suggest new ways to frame American global policy, while catching something of the white heat of our moment, and offer a chronicle and original perspectives on our troubling times. Tom Engelhardt,
