Vol. 16, No. 2 (1989)
In this issue, the authors, including Peter Dale Scott, Gilda Zwerman, Alan Block, and Frank Pearce, address the abuse of power in the Iran-contra scandal and on the covert national-security-state apparatus; the corruption of high officials; and the state-corporate responsibility for disparaging the earth through ecological disasters. Investigations into the counterterrorism policy and network in the state, as well as President Bush's personal role in its elaboration, lead to questions regarding the vitality of a democratic current in the American body politic.
