Description: This book begins where You Are Being Lied To left off. Once again, an amazing group of investigative journalists, researchers, insiders, dissidents, and academics peels back consensus reality and shows us what's really happening. Hard, documented evidence on the most powerful institutions and controversial topics in the world. Among the revelations: _ Antidepressants trash your brain. _ China has repeatedly threatened to nuke the US. _ Young people are less violent now than they have been in over 30 years. _ Mad Cow disease is killing people in America. _ Many disabled people don't want to be "cured" and don't admire Christopher Reeve. Plus previously unpublished revelations about the International Monetary Fund, the Vatican Bank, the Olympic Games, Henry Lee Lucas, the drug war in South America, unpublicized accidents at nuclear power plants, and much more. Includes reproductions of rare documents and photos, including an unpublished eyewitness sketch of a mysterious third gunman at Columbine. Among the 50+ contributors: Naomi Klein _ Douglas Rushkoff _ Arianna Huffington _ Howard Zinn _ Paul Krassner _ Gary Webb _ Howard Bloom _ Noreena Hertz _ Alexander Cockburn _ Thomas Szasz _ William Blum _ James Ridgeway _ Kalle Lasn _ Wendy McElroy Marketing Plans: _ Heavy promotion on Disinformation site (500,000+ unique visitors/month) and Disinformation email newsletter (50,000+ subscribers). _ Disinformation TV series will air nationally on Sci-Fi Channel during 2002; contains profiles of several of the book's contributors. _ Marketing campaign by Green Galactic publicity agency.

Howard Zinn grew up in the immigrant slums of Brooklyn, where he worked in shipyards in his late teens. He saw combat duty as an air force bombardier in World War II, and afterward received his doctorate in history from Columbia University. His first book, "La Guardia in Congress", was an Albert Berveridge Prize winner. In 1956, he moved with his wife and children to Atlanta to become chairman of the history department of Spelman College. He has since written and edited many more books, including A People's History of the United States, SNCC: The New Abolitionist; Disobedience and Democracy; The Politics of History; The Pentagon Papers: Critical Essays; You Can't Be Neutral on a Moving Train: A Personal History of Our Times; and The Zinn Reader (Seven Stories Press, 1997). The Spanish-language edition of A People's History of the United States, La otra historia de los Estados Unidos, is due to be released later this year by Seven Stories Press under its Spanish-language imprint, Siete Cuentos Editorial. Zinn is also the author of three plays, Emma, Daughter of Venus, and Marx in Soho. Among the many honors Zinn has received, the most recent is the 1998 Lannan Literary Award for nonfiction. A professor emeritus of political science at Boston University, he lives with his wife, Roslyn, in the Boston area, near their children and grandchildren.
