"Howard Kurtz takes us into the sick little world of obsessed, self-importantprosecutorial journalists and their opposing cadre of self-important, image-mongering White House flacks. From his solid reporting, we are remindedagain of the way image and process have triumphed over political substance,and why so many millions of Americans have lost all interest in political news.Anybody who cares deeply about the future of this Republic should read thisbook, and tremble. -Pete HamillSpin Cycle is the first behind-the-scenes account of the White House political operation as it packages and shapes the news by manipulating, misleading, and in some cases, intimidating the press. It is also the tale of how some of the nation’s top journalists buy into these efforts and, often, put their own spin on the news.Competing, infuriating, often devastatingly funny, this is the story you shouldread before you pick up the newspaper tomorrow morning."Spin Cycle is a revealing, highly detailed insider account . . . .[which] should dispel any lingering myths about a liberal mainstream press eager to promote the president." -Wendy Kaminer, The New York Times Book Review"In 300 nail-biting pages, Clinton’s strategists and spinmasters are shown desperately scrambling and bailing to keep a torrent of scandals from sinking the battered ship of state. . . . Spin Cycle provides an intimate view of the daily battles between the president and the media for control of the news." -Mark Jurkowitz, The Boston Globe"In Spin Cycle, Kurtz has written another winner . . . [he] does a masterful job describing the relentless and unseemly jockeying for professional advancement and public attention by journalists, the president’s handlers, and the president himself." -Keith Schneider, Detroit Free PressHoward Kurtz, the longtime media reporter for The Washington Post, is the author of Hot Air and Media Circus. Named the nation’s best media reporter by the American Journalism Review, Kurtz is co-host of CNN’s Reliable Sources and has also written for The New Republic, TV Guide, New York, and numerous other magazines.

Obama, an itinerant child of the 1970s, was raised by a single mother in Indonesia and Hawaii, suspended between…

Author: Nelson Lichtenstein, Judith Stein
Narrator: Tom Campbell

When Bill Clinton was elected president in 1992, he ended twelve years of Republican rule and seemed poised to enact a progressive transformation of the US economy, touching everything from health care to trade to labor relations. Yet by the time he left office, the nation’s economic and social policies had instead lurched dramatically rightward, exacerbating the inequalities so troubling in our own time. Nelson Lichtenstein and Judith Stein show how the administration’s progressive reformers were stymied by a new world of global capitalism that heightened Wall Street influence, undermined domestic manufacturing, and eviscerated the labor movement.

Lessons from Russia Clinton and US Democracy Promotion


Free Download Lessons from Russia: Clinton and US Democracy Promotion By Lee Marsden
2005 | 218 Pages | ISBN: 0815390211 | PDF | 8 MB
Lee Marsden presents one of the most original and comprehensive analyses of US democracy promotion in Russia and argues that in order to understand the failings of democracy assistance in Russia, it is necessary to understand the inter-relation of macro- and micro-level policy. The book introduces two new models of foreign policy analysis which increase understanding of both the formulation and implementation of foreign policy. Furthermore, it demonstrates how the promotion of democracy in Russia was substantially flawed due to implementation and the US foreign policy process.
