  • Autographed Copy of Tom Engelhardt’s A Nation Unmade by War
    As Tom Engelhardt argues, despite having a more massive, technologically advanced, and better-funded military than any other power on the planet, in the last decade and a half of constant war, the United States has won nothing. Its unending wars, in fact, have only contributed to a world growing more chaotic by the second. From its founding, the United States has been a nation made by wars. Engelhardt ponders whether in this century, its citizenry and government will be unmade by them. Noam Chomsky calls it, “Incisive, lucid, and brutally informative." Andrew Bacevich says, “Engelhardt at his very best… impassioned, and funny even, in a time of great darkness." Donate $100.00 or more ($125 if you live outside the U.S.), and you can choose to receive a personalized, autographed copy of the paperback. Minimum Donation Amount: $100.00

  • Autographed Copy of Robert Lipsyte’s SportsWorld: An American Dreamland
    Robert Lipsyte’s classic, SportsWorld: An American Dreamland, has just been reissued (with a new introduction). In a recent New Yorker review, Ian Crouch hailed it this way: “The anger voiced by a segment of American sports fandom this past year -- directed at, among other targets, players kneeling during the national anthem to protest inequality and police brutality -- reminded me of a line from the sportswriter Robert Lipsyte: ‘the fans are getting meaner every day.’ He wrote this in 1975, in SportsWorld, a semi-Marxist critique of American athletic culture that remains fresh and essential today” Donate $100.00 or more ($125 if you live outside the U.S.), and you can choose to receive a personalized, autographed copy of the paperback.

  • Autographed Copy of Alfred McCoy’s In the Shadows of the American Century: The Rise and Decline of U.S. Global Power
    Prize-winning historian Alfred W. McCoy explores America’s rise as a world power from the 1890s through the Cold War and its bid to extend its hegemony deep into the twenty-first century through a fusion of cyberwar, space warfare, trade pacts, and military alliances. McCoy then analyzes the marquee instruments of U.S. hegemony: covert intervention, client elites, psychological torture, and worldwide surveillance, boldly laying out a series of scenarios that could lead to the end of Washington’s world domination by 2030. Of the book Andrew Bacevich says, “This is history with profound relevance to events that are unfolding before our eyes.” Donate $100.00 or more ($125 if you live outside the U.S.), and you can choose to receive a personalized, autographed copy of the paperback.

  • Authographed Copy of John Feffer's Splinterlands
    Part Field Notes from a Catastrophe, part 1984, part World War Z, John Feffer's striking new dystopian novel, takes us deep into the battered, shattered world of 2050. The European Union has broken apart. Multiethnic great powers like Russia and China have shriveled. America's global military footprint has virtually disappeared and the United States remains united in name only. Nationalism has proven the century's most enduring force as ever-rising global temperatures have supercharged each-against-all competition and conflict among the now 300-plus members of an increasingly feeble United Nations. Mike Davis says: “John Feffer is our twenty-first-century Jack London and, like the latter’s Iron Heel, Splinterlands is a vivid, suspenseful warning about the ultimate incompatibility of capitalism and human survival.” Donate $100.00 or more ($125 if you live outside the U.S.), and you can choose to receive a personalized, autographed copy of the paperback.

  • Autographed Copy of Nick Turse's Next Time They’ll Come to Count the Dead: War and Survival in South Sudan
    A dramatic story of men and women trapped in the grip of war, this book is modern crisis reporting at its best.  Adam Hochschild calls it “searing reporting”; Noam Chomsky, “a vivid, gripping account of inhuman cruelty.”  For six weeks in 2015, award-winning journalist Nick Turse traveled on foot as well as by car, SUV, and helicopter around war-torn South Sudan talking to military officers and child soldiers, United Nations officials and internally displaced people whose lives had been blown apart by a ceaseless conflict there. In fast-paced, dramatic fashion, he reveals the harsh reality of modern warfare in the developing world and the ways people manage to survive the unimaginable. Donate $100.00 or more ($125 if you live outside the U.S.), and you can choose to receive a personalized, autographed copy of the hardcover.

  • Autographed copy of America’s Nuremberg: The U.S. Officials Who Should Stand Trial for Post-9/11 War Crimes by Rebecca Gordon
    Especially in this Trumpian moment, few subjects are more hotly debated than the extreme measures that our government took after 9/11 in the name of national security: torture, extraordinary rendition, drone assassinations, secret detention centers (or “black sites”), massive surveillance of citizens. But while the press occasionally exposes the dark side of the war on terror and congressional investigators sometimes raise alarms about the abuses committed, no high U.S. official has been prosecuted for these violations – which are generally considered war crimes. This is a must-read look at the crimes top American officials oversaw and why they deserve to be brought to court for them. Donate $100.00 or more ($125 if you live outside the U.S.), and you can choose to receive a personalized, autographed copy of the hardcover.

  • Autographed copy of American Reckoning: The Vietnam War and Our National Identity
    How did the Vietnam War change the way we think of ourselves as a people and a nation, how has it shaped us from the 1950s to late last night? Christian G. Appy, author of the widely praised oral history of the Vietnam War Patriots, now examines the relationship between the war’s realities and myths and its impact on our national identity, conscience, pride, shame, popular culture, and postwar foreign policy. Drawing on a vast variety of sources from movies, songs, and novels to official documents, media coverage, and contemporary commentary, Appy offers an original interpretation of the war and its far-reaching consequences which adds up to a completely fresh account of the meaning of the Vietnam War. Donate $100.00 or more ($125 if you live outside the U.S.), and you can choose to receive a personalized, autographed copy of the hardcover.

  • Autographed copy of Shadow Government: Surveillance, Secret Wars, and a Global Security State in a Single Superpower World
    In 1964, a book entitled The Invisible Government shocked Americans with its revelations of a growing world of intelligence agencies playing fast and loose around the planet, a secret government lodged inside the one they knew that even the president didn't fully control. Almost half a century later, everything about that "invisible government" has grown vastly larger, more disturbing, and far more visible. In his new book, Tom Engelhardt takes in something new under the sun: what is no longer, as in the 1960s, a national security state, but a global security one, fighting secret wars that have turned the president into an assassin-in-chief. This is a powerful survey of a democracy of the wealthy that your grandparents wouldn't have recognized. Donate $100.00 or more ($125 if you live outside the U.S.), and you can choose to receive a personalized, autographed copy of the hardcover. The tax-deductible portion of your donation will be your gift total minus 3% for "goods and services."

  • Autographed copy of Worth Fighting For: An Army Ranger’s Journey Out of the Military and Across America
    Pat Tillman's death by friendly fire was covered up just days before his comrade Rory Fanning -- who served in the same unit as Tillman -- left the Army Rangers as a conscientious objector. Disquieted by his tours in Afghanistan, Fanning sets out to honor Tillman's legacy by crossing the United States on foot. Told with page-turning style, humor, and warmth, Fanning’s Worth Fighting For explores the emotional and social consequences of rejecting the mission of one of the most elite fighting forces in the world. The book is a genuine antiwar American odyssey. Donate $100.00 or more ($125 if you live outside the U.S.), and you can choose to receive a personalized, autographed copy of the hardcover.

About TomDispatch.com:

Tom Engelhardt launched TomDispatch in November 2001 as an e-mail publication offering commentary and collected articles from the world press. In December 2002, it gained its name, became a project of The Nation Institute, and went online as "a regular antidote to the mainstream media." The site now features Tom Engelhardt's regular commentaries and the original work of authors ranging from Rebecca Solnit, Bill McKibben, and Mike Davis to Chalmers Johnson, Michael Klare, Adam Hochschild, Robert Lipsyte, and Elizabeth de la Vega. Nick Turse, who also writes for the site, is associate editor and research director.

TomDispatch is intended to introduce readers to voices and perspectives from elsewhere (even when the elsewhere is here). Its mission is to connect some of the global dots regularly left unconnected by the mainstream media and to offer a clearer sense of how this imperial globe of ours actually works.

Selected Comments about TomDispatch

Jonathan Schell: "At a time when the mainstream media leave out half of what the public needs to know, while at the same time purveying oceans of official nonsense, the public needs an alternative source of news. Tom Engelhardt's TomDispatch has been that for me. With unerring touch, he finds the stories I need to read, prefacing them each day with introductions that in themselves form a witty, hugely enjoyable, brilliant running commentary on the times. He is my mainstream."

Juan Cole: "Tom Engelhardt is a national treasure and always worth reading. Whenever I think that Russell Jacoby might have been right about the passing of the 'last intellectuals,' I think of Tom and conclude 'not yet.'" See the full article.

James Wolcott: "Tom Engelhardt [is] a writer of titanic energy and commitment." See the full article.

Jim Lobe, Inter Press Service at his Lobelog blog: "Tom Engelhardt [is] the finest and hardest working essayist and editor of the post-9/11 era, who has kept a steady eye on Washington's 'baser' intentions since even before the 2003 invasion." See full article.

Steve Wasserman, editor of the Los Angeles Times Book Review: "The I.F. Stone of the Internet."

Tony Karon, Time Magazine senior editor and creator of the Rootless Cosmopolitan blog: "Indispensable." See the full article.

Mike Tronnes, Editor, Cursor.org: "'Tom Engelhardt' is one brand that I just can't resist."
