Recorded Talks | Biography
BESEIGED deals with the underlying forces within U.S. society that
deeply affect our lives. Showing how we are being misled and harmed
those who profess to have our interests at heart, Michael Parenti writes: “We
are indeed a nation besieged, not from without but from within, not
subverted from below but from above. The moneyed power exercises a
monopoly influence over our political life, over the economy, the state,
and the media. Some Americans are astonished to hear of it. Others
had their suspicions, although they may not be quite sure how it all
adds up. This book invites the reader to stop blaming the powerless
and, in that good old American phrase, start ‘following the money.’
That is the first and most important step toward lifting the siege
democracy back to life.”
