Hi all, I've just submitted for proofing "The World As It Is: Dispatches On the Myth of Human Progress" by Chris Hedges. It's been read through, errors corrected, headers stripped, page numbers and section titles present, text/heading fonts formatted. 351 pages. I suggest removing the "adult" rating. Description: Drawing on two decades of experience as a war correspondent and based on his numerous columns for Truthdig, Chris Hedges presentsThe World As It Is, a panorama of the American empire at home and abroad, from the coarsening effect of America's War on Terror to the front lines in the Middle East and South Asia and the continuing Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Underlying his reportage is a constant struggle with the nature of war and its impact on human civilization. "War is always about betrayal," Hedges notes. "It is about betrayal of the young by the old, of cynics by idealists, and of soldiers and Marines by politicians. Society's institutions, including our religious institutions, which mold us into compliant citizens, are unmasked.
