Review: Freeing the World to Death: Essays on the American Empire

User Review  - Chris Brown - Goodreads

I guess I agree with alot of the opinions he has to offer, but most of what he writes is in the "did you know" category and struck me as rather insipid. The "essays" are mostly a paragraph or two, and sometimes a few sentences. Its just not worth the time. Read full review
