Don’t let the cover price deter you. It’s worth every penny. Ever since high school, the last time I’d read Time or Newsweek outside of a waiting room, I’d always wondered what a larger-scale, politically savvy, non-advertising riddled magazine would read like, and now I know. Graphically arresting and laid out in a very startling way, it doesn’t rely on big, punchy pull quotes, but invites the reader to – surprisingly – read. It’s a collage of email missives, diatribes (Hunter S. Thompson’s three paragraphs starting off with “We have become a Nazi monster in the eyes of the whole world – a nation of bullies and bastards who would rather kill than live peacefully” is awesome in and of itself), and essays. I was also hugely pleased at the broad range of topics covered, from excerpts on Islamic banking practices, political activism of making corporations have fewer rights than human begins, to a nice range of satire and fiction. It effortlessly oscillates from scholarly to gutsy, to extremely political to almost whimsical, while keeping its goal firmly in place: “We want to change the way we interact with the mass media and the way in which meaning is produced in our society.” No small task, and one that is achieved in its pages. –Todd (Adbusters, 1243 West 7th Ave., Vancouver, British Columbia, V6H 1B7, Canada)
