They know everything about you : how data-collecting corporations and snooping government agencies are destroying democracy by Robert Scheer( Book )

12 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Chinese and held by 801 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the first week of June 2013, the American people discovered that for a decade, they had abjectly traded their individual privacy for the chimera of national security. The revelation that the federal government has full access to all phone records and the vast trove of presumably private personal data posted on the Internet has brought the threat of a surveillance society to the fore. But the erosion of privacy rights extends far beyond big government. Big business has long played a leading role in the hollowing out of personal freedoms. In this new book, Robert Scheer shows how our most intimate habits, from private correspondence, book pages read, and lists of friends and phone conversations have been seamlessly combined in order to create a detailed map of an individual's social and biological DNA."--Publisher information

The pornography of power : how defense hawks hijacked 9/11 and weakened America by Robert Scheer( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Journalist Scheer examines the expansion of the United States' military presence throughout the world, our insane nuclear strategy, the immorality of corporations profiting in Iraq, and the arrogance of our foreign policy. Although Scheer is a liberal, his view echoes that of former Republican president Eisenhower, who, in his farewell speech to the American people, spoke prophetically about need to guard against the growing influence of the military-industrial complex. In George W. Bush's America, politicians like Ike and Richard Nixon seem like prudent centrists. The views of libertarians, liberals, and pacifists are often overlooked or ignored by America's mainstream media. This book is the culmination of a respected journalist's efforts to change the terms of debate.--From publisher description

Playing president : my close encounters with Nixon, Carter, Bush I, Reagan, and Clinton : and how they did not prepare me for George W. Bush by Robert Scheer( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Scheer's interviews with U.S. Presidents, and his profiles of them, have shaped journalism history. Scheer developed close journalistic relationships with Presidents Nixon, Carter, Reagan, Clinton, and Bush I. His reporting on them had a tangible impact on national debate-such as the eminent 1976 Playboy interview in which Jimmy Carter, the then-presidential candidate, admitted to lusting in his heart; and the 1980 interview with the Los Angeles Times, during which Bush I confessed to Scheer his dream of a "winnable nuclear war." In Playing President, Robert Scheer offers an unparalleled insight into the presidential mind. Through both new writing and reprinted material, he analyzes each administration since Nixon, and including George W. Bush, offering insights that will surprise the reader-particularly those with rigid preconceptions about the decision-making processes of our leaders. The volume will also include Scheer's famous presidential interviews, along with previously unpublished interview transcripts and select previous writings."--
