Thieves in High Places

Thieves in High Places

America is at an historic divide between rulers and rulees and the rulees are restless. Hightower's THIEVES IN HIGH PLACES is an epistle to the American people about vision and choices, and it's a clarion call to action. The question Jim Hightower is asking is: What kind of country do you want America to be? Not only for you, but for your children and theirs? In THIEVES IN HIGH PLACES Hightower takes on the Bushites, the Wobblycrats, and the corporate Kleptocrats, digging up behind-the scenes dirt that the corporate media overlooks like BushCo's "Friday Night Massacres", what's happened to our food, and the Bush plan for empire. Also drawing on Hightower's Rolling Thunder Down-Home Democracy Tour, Hightower has tapped into the thriving activist networks that are our country's grassroots muscle, and his book tells their uplifting stories of retaking control of their communities.
