Dirty Wars: The World Is a Battlefield by Jeremy #Scahill

This book is a classic of sociological research.

His writing set a standard for vivid portrayals of real people in real situations.  Cote	: 9-46 WHY

I highly recommend this book.  I had to read it for Sociology class in college and still remember its message after 10 years. I'd like to read it again.
