Overview

Estúpidos hombres blancos es una obra lúcida y vigorosa cuya lectura no deja indiferente. Es una divertida sátira política que revela, entre otras cosas, cómo el presidente Bush robó unas elecciones contando con la ayuda de su hermano, de su primo, los compinches de su padre, un fraude elctoral y unos jueces mansos; cómo los ricos siguen siendo ricos mientras nos obligan a que vivamos en un miedo permanente a los malos resultados económicos; y cómo los políticos se han aliado con el mundo de los grandes negocios.

Michael Moore es un afamado escritor y cineasta norteamericano que ganó el Oscar a la mejor película documental como director de Bowling for Columbine.

Editorial Reviews

Criticas
Set for release in 2001, this satire on American government and society became an international best seller even after its publisher tried to keep it off the market because of its harsh criticism of the Bush administration. Moore (Dude, Where's My Country?, Warner, 2003) went on to win the 2002 Academy Award for Best Documentary for Bowling for Columbine. Clearly, Moore got the last laugh, and now Spanish readers can judge for themselves what the controversy was all about. Throughout, the liberal political activist points out the hypocrisies and contradictions of both Republican and Democratic Party leaders, although President Bush is his main target. As with all effective satires, the facts are cleverly presented with exaggerated humor and urgency. Relevant issues, ranging from the electoral process to the prison system to pollution of the planet to the American way of education do not escape Moore's unabashed tongue. The translation effortlessly retains his sarcastic tone without sacrificing accuracy. The book includes sidebars citing the Constitution and other sources, as well as an annotated bibliography of English-language references that challenge readers to check the facts themselves. For its insightful peek into the state of modern American politics and for its entertainment value, this book is strongly recommended for all libraries and bookstores.
