Overview

A decade in the making, the long-awaited “dead tree” edition in a concise, concentrated $14.95 paperback. What Fresh Hell? brings together 10 years of blogging on war and peace; politics and society in the Obama and Bush-Cheney years; infrastructure-on-life-support; and the environment in a time of extreme weather. The New Orleans–dedicated, New York–based blog Levees Not War was founded in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina, and now serves up liberal portions of sharp, spirited writing, grounded in a vision of the social contract—a society held together by honoring the Golden Rule—along with interviews with experts, tributes to activists and civil rights leaders, on-the-scene reporting from Occupy Wall Street, and more. Featured pieces include • “Is Katrina More Significant Than 9/11?” • “ ‘Oil-Spotted Dick’: Cheney’s Oily Fingerprints in the BP Disaster” • “Public Works in a Time of Job-Killing Scrooges,” • and “Omigod! Infinite Iraqi Freedom! We’re Never Leaving!”
