Journalist Chris Hedges on “Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt”


Prolific writer and journalist Chris Hedges joins us this Sunday to discuss his newest book, "Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt." In collaboration with graphic artist, Joe Stacco, Hedges investigates the impact of unfettered capitalism on American life. Part graphic novel, part journalistic narrative, "Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt," offers a unique glimpse into the American experience living in the capitalist state.

Hedges, whose column is published Mondays on Truthdig, is a senior fellow at The Nation Institute in New York City and has taught at Columbia University, New York University and Princeton University. Hedges was part of the team of reporters at The New York Times awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 2002 for the paper’s coverage of global terrorism. He also received the Amnesty International Global Award for Human Rights Journalism in 2002. He currently teaches inmates at a correctional facility in New Jersey.
