Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires behind the Rise of the Radical Right

BOOK REVIEW: In 'Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right,' investigative journalist Jane Mayer reveals how a elite group of plutocrats have effectively subjected the US political system to a process akin to corporate capture. This is a thorough, meticulously researched and compelling account of the financial takeover of US democracy that unveils the otherwise hidden influence of the billionaire class, writes Peter Carrol.

BOOK REVIEW: 'Another Day in the Death of America: A Chronicle of Ten Short Lives'

On an average day in the USA, seven children and teenagers will be shot dead. In 'Another Day in the Death of America: A Chronicle of Ten Short Lives,' journalist Gary Younge tells the stories of ten lives lost on one single day: November 23, 2013. This is a powerful, timely and important contribution to the debate on U.S. gun culture and how US society particularly treats its African American citizens, writes Peter Carrol.
