    1. Secrets of people in power.For me this book was an eye opener to the workings of how people are securing their overall wellbeing and peace of mind In an ever changing world. I have to wonder why we have to eliminate people with drones and strike forces. Anyways the book gets me thinking and wondering if it is really legal and so on and so forth.

    2. Tom Engelhardt's Shadow Government: Surveillance, Secret Wars, and a Global Security State in a Single-Superpower World highlights some of the main concerns of America's 21st Century foreign policy. Rather than a history about the war on terror or a treatise on new revelations, Shadow Government is a summation and retelling of topics already covered by Jeremy Scahill, Gore Vidal, Mark Mazzetti, Rachael Maddow, and others.

    3.

Everything else has been a stalemate or has found us leaving, exhaust [...]

I did expect this to be more in-depth in terms of reading about specific behind-the-scenes accounts of what we publicly see in the media every day. That wasn't there. The book didn't really reveal anything I didn't already know. This is more of a book-length essay, and [...]

    5. Very uninspiring. if you weren't aware of this already then you are un the dark. Not a great read a very repetitive.

    6. Solid and well-rounded, but also rather shallow. A bit curious, too, that Engelhardt doesn't really discuss the Snowden revelations themselves, but only their implications. Some details could have gone a long way towards expanding on the implications.

    7. Very little in this book will be new to lefties (and especially not Engelhardt readers), but it's a nice overview of the current madness.

    9. Good stuff. Not much in there that I had not seen before. More ranting than substance.
