Beschreibung

"Probably the most gifted polemicist writing in English today." - David Reiff, Times Literary Supplement "Never less than ferociously entertaining." - Publishers Weekly "Outspoken, intellectual, uncompromising, combative, witty and incapable of hiding his contempt for the powers that be." - Utne Reader "Snobbish, funny, brutal and nostalgic." - Los Angeles Times "Like Adorno, Cockburn's province is the consciousness industry, and if, unlike Adorno, he isn't mournful, then so much the better ... He is one of the few journalists in America, given that most of them tend to report either each other or what is acceptable to policy-makers." - Edward Said, London Review of Books ""His work stands in the best tradition of Mark Twain, Hazlitt and Paine."" -- Ben Sonnenberg, Editor of Grand Street "Talented, despicable." - New Republic ""Cockburn's weekly pieces ... have set a new standard of gutter journalism in this country."" -- Norman Podhoretz, Commentary "A good mouser." - The New Leader "But a better mole." - Murray Kempton

Portrait

Alexander Cockburn was born in Scotland and grew up in County Cork, Ireland, of which country he is a citizen. After working in London as a journalist, he became a resident of the US in 1973. He soon established himself as a radical reporter and commentator, writing for the Village Voice, New York Review of Books, Esquire and Harper's. He now writes regular columns for The Nation, The Wall Street Journal, New Statesman and Society, and for the alternative press, syndicated through LA Weekly.
