Hopeless: Barack Obama and the Politics of Illusion

Friday, 1 June 2012 | A Public Affair

Esty Dinur interviewed Jeffrey St. Clair, editor of the newly released book “Hopeless: Barack Obama and the Politics of Illusion.” “Hopeless is a view of Obama’s policies from the trenches: the compromises, the backstabbing, the same old imperial ambitions… As Emma Goldman famously quipped, “If voting changed anything, they’d make it illegal.” Let this book stand as a painful reminder to those who think anything less than social struggle will net tangible gain.” -AK Press Contributors include: Kevin Alexander Gray, Jeremy Scahill, Joe Bageant, Marjorie Cohn, Brian Tokar, Linn Washington, Jr., Ronnie Cummins, Kathy Kelly, Tariq Ali, Ralph Nader, and more.
