Praise for Ted Rall:

"Rall is known first and foremost for his political cartoons, but, man, he knows how to tell a story, too."—Publishers Weekly

"As tangible and real of a story as was ever put on paper. Raw, honest and completely visceral, [The Year of Loving Dangerously] is a book for the ages."—Comics Waiting Room

In arguably his most radical book published in decades, cartoonist/columnist Ted Rall has produced the book he was always meant to write: a new manifesto for an America heading toward economic and political collapse. While others mourn the damage to the postmodern American capitalist system created by the recent global economic collapse, Rall sees an opportunity. As millions of people lose their jobs and their homes, they and millions more are opening their minds to the possibility of creating a radically different form of government and economic infrastructure.

But there are dangers. As in Russia in 1991, criminals and right-wing extremists are best prepared to fill the power vacuum from a collapsing United States. The best way to stop them, Rall argues, is not collapse—but revolution. Not by other people, but by us. Not in the future, but now.

A Pulitzer Prize finalist and twice the winner of the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award, Ted Rall is a syndicated political cartoonist, opinion columnist, graphic novelist and occasional war correspondent whose work appears in hundreds of publications, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Village Voice, and Los Angeles Times.

Review: The Anti-American Manifesto

User Review  - Goodreads

Rall doesn't mince words and explains exactly what he thinks is needed to change things in this country. I don't agree with everything he wrote, but it's an important book nonetheless. Read full review

Although I generally like Rall, this was not a book I found particularly amusing, informative, or even readable. A disappointment. Read full review
