This essay is a companion to my own Globalistan, published in early 2007, which I defined as a warped geopolitical travel book. I argued then that in a context of re-medievalization - the world fragmented into "stans" - we are now living an intestinal war, an undeclared global civil war. Borrowing from Zygmunt Bauman's concept of liquid modernity, I called it Liquid War - and not only because of the global scramble for "black gold" oil and "blue gold" gas. Globalistan was essentially a long reportage crisscrossing the world. This text reflects the fact that I spent most of 2008 in the U.S. following the presidential campaign. As far as New Rome is concerned I'm usually outside looking in - the point of view of my dying profession, the foreign correspondent. In this text I'm most of the time inside looking out. Globalistan can be read as an on the ground - and underground - report on the Bush administration wasteland. This text could be something of a last chapter - out of the belly of the beast. 2009 is the Mother of all celebratory years. The 20 years of the fall of the Berlin Wall. The 30 years of

A philosophical approach to analyzing human experience might be regarded as a process of discovery. Finding the experience of existing a given and good fact, thinking individuals may inquire regarding the nature and way of being and its process of changing in a continuum of form and reform. In writing these informal essays and comments on contemporary interests I want to put some philosophical intention on it for the good.

From Syria and Iraq to Ukraine, from AfPak to Libya, from Iran to Russia, and from the Persian Gulf to China, foreign correspondent Pepe Escobar, author of The Roving Eye column for Asia Times/Hong Kong, crisscrosses what the Pentagon calls the "arc of instability." As Escobar tells it in the introduction, "the columns selected for this volume follow the period 2009-2014 - the Obama years so far. A continuum with previous volumes published by Nimble Books does apply. Globalistan, from 2007, was an extended reportage/warped travel book across the Bush years, where I argued the world was being plunged into Liquid War - alluding to energy flows but also to the liquid modernity character of post-modern war. Red Zone Blues, also from 2007, was a vignette - an extended reportage centering on the Baghdad surge. And Obama does Globalistan, from 2009, examined how the hyperpower could embark on a "change we can believe in". The outcome, as these columns arguably reflect, is Empire of Chaos - where a plutocracy progressively projects its own internal disintegration upon the whole world.""You will find some key overlapping nations/themes/expressions/acronyms in these columns; Iran, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Central Asia, China, Russia, Ukraine, Pipelineistan, BRICS,

Dieses Buch beweist einmal mehr, dass es nicht um schnelle Urteile und Stellungnahmen geht, sondern um ein auf historische Zusammenhänge und ein bestimmtes theoretisches Verständnis gestütztes Wissen, aus dem die politische Kritik wie selbstverständlich folgt. Dass Bill Mitchell an den derzeit herrschenden wirtschaftspolitischen Verhältnissen in Europa kein gutes Haar lässt, mag man als Europäer bedauern, ist man intellektuell ehrlich, muss man ihm aber weitgehend zustimmen. Bill Mitchell leistet mit seinem Buch einen großartigen Beitrag dazu, in Europa die einseitige Diskussion und die einseitige Politik zu beenden. Ganz besonders wichtig ist aber die deutsche Ausgabe, weil hierzulande die Diskussion noch viel steriler verläuft als in den übrigen Ländern. Deutschland fühlt sich im Recht, weil es erfolgreich ist. Doch der Erfolg alleine ist sowohl in den zwischenmenschlichen Beziehungen als auch in den Beziehungen zwischen Nationen ein schlechter Indikator für vernünftiges Verhalten. Nur wer hinter die Kulissen schaut, die Vorgänge versteht und für dieses Verstehen einen angemessenen theoretischen Rahmen hat, sollte über Recht und Unrecht urteilen. Bill Mitchell verfügt über all diese Fähigkeiten, weswegen sein Buch hoffentlich bald zum Standardrepertoire des Faches gehört. Heiner Flassbeck
Raging Twenties: Great Power Politics Meets Techno-Feudalism in the Era of COVID-19

In RAGING TWENTIES, Pepe Escobar smashes a triple-wide jumbo bulldozer of erudition and insight through the painfully narrow and now Big Tech-fortified Overton window of conventional American political discourse. This volume includes 25 essays written for Asia Times, Consortium News, and Strategic Culture in the incomparable year of 2020 and adds a new introduction, afterword, and table of abbreviations. Educated people of all political persusasions will enjoy Escobar's stinging prose and his display of his wide-ranging and truly global knowledge of poetry, history, and political philosophy. American readers already skeptical of the dominant narrative will enjoy this scintillating dissection of the mammoth hypocrisy involved in the standard governmental and corporate narrative. And those with perspectives similar to the American mainstream will benefit from reading a truly Other-centered exemplar of the several billion people who find the political perspectives that are commonplace in Asia, Europe, China, Russia, and Iran more congenial than those of a US establishment that has gifted the world with seventy-five-plus years of continuous war. Escobar's first book in the US, Globalistan (Nimble, 2007), brilliantly anticipated the future of a disintegrating international system in an era of "Liquid" (hybrid) war. These were followed by Red Zone Blues (2007);

A nomadic political analyst realizes he will soon become a grandfather. So he decides to write a digital letter to his grandson-to-be; an intangible legacy, encompassing some lessons he learned from life. The letter can only be "opened" in 2030, when the grandson will be a teenager in a world in turmoil. Beginning with Bob Dylan and touching on techno, Keats, Maserati, Siddhartha, Shakespeare, Blake, Borges, Xuanzang and scores of other legacies, the author shares his experience and wisdom in a deeply cultured and tremendously moving ode to the beauty and richness of past and future worlds. A wonderful gift for any seeker. Pepe Escobar is the roving correspondent/columnist for Asia Times/Hong Kong, and an analyst for RT and Sputnik in Russia, and TomDispatch in the U.S. He has worked as a foreign correspondent since 1985, in North America, Western Europe and across Asia. He is the author of Globalistan; Red Zone Blues; Obama does Globalistan; and Empire of Chaos, all published by Nimble Books. He commutes between Europe and Asia. Follow him on Facebook.
