Contrary Notions
The Michael Parenti Reader

"Radical in the true sense of the word, [Parenti] digs at the roots which... sustain our public consciousness."— Los Angeles Times Book Review

Internationally acclaimed, award-winning author Michael Parenti is one of America's most astute and engaging political analysts. Parenti’s work has enlightened and enlivened readers for many years, covering a wide range of subjects.

Here is a rich selection of his most lucid and penetrating writings on real history, political life, empire, wealth, class power, technology, culture, ideology, media, environment, sex, and ethnicity. Also included are a few choice selections drawn from his own life experiences and political awakening. Parenti goes where few political observers dare to tread. Time and again he takes the extra step beyond the parameters of permissible opinion, and time and again he succeeds in carrying the reader with him.

The selections herein, that are reprinted from previously published works, have been revised and updated. Other offerings appear here for the very first time.
