[Editor's Note: This is a combined review with WAR REPORTING (Fisk) and WAR AND CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE (Zinn).]-- Since 1986, Alternative Radio has offered public affairs radio shows for broadcast throughout the world. These lectures, recorded before live audiences, have an immediate and intimate feel and feature some of the best-known and most-outspoken writers and activists in their fields. Here Robert Fisk, a Middle East reporter, takes "embedded" journalists to task for not reporting all angles of the War in Iraq. Canadian author and senior advisor to the United Nations Maude Barlow warns of the privatization of one of the world's most precious resources—water. And longtime civil rights and antiwar activist Howard Zinn discusses the need for nonviolent civil disobedience in the world today. There's no question these authors all wear their left-of-center politics on their sleeves. Their eloquence and passion make these programs compelling listening.
