important public libraries, and how citizens are fighting back.

Project Censored - 05.14.19

Peter Phillips returns to the Project Censored Show, this time as a guest, to discuss his new book, 
"Giants: The Global Power Elite." The product of years of research, "Giants" identifies the members of 
the 'transnational corporate class:' the institutions and individuals that control trillions of dollars 
of the world's wealth, and wield the political power that these riches confer.
 

Notes:

This program is a rebroadcast of a Project Censored Show previously aired.

 
Peter Phillips is Professor of Sociology at Sonoma State University in California.
He's also the retired director of Project Censored, and co-founder of the Project Censored radio show. 
"Giants" is his 18th book, and is published by Seven Stories Press.

This program includes Resendez' speech, and part of the question-and-answer period that followed. 

 
Notes:
 
Andres Resendez' book, "The Other Slavery," was published in 2016 by Houghton-Mifflin. 
It is also in paperback from Mariner Books.
