Ocean Press, an independent, radical publisher, has just published two new
books that take a look at September 11 from the perspective of the Southern
Hemisphere:

AMERIKA PSYCHO
Behind Uncle Sam's Mask of Sanity
By Richard Neville

This is a lively and entertaining book of essays by Australian Richard
Neville, often compared to Michael Moore, who gained notoriety in the 1960s
as the publisher of Oz magazine in London.  'Is Uncle Sam a psychopath?" he
asks. Today's all-powerful U.S. culture - through its movies, merchandise,
media, politics and foreign policy - reveals a "disturbing identification
with Imperial Rome," a culture which, he argues, "asserts the sanctity of
its lifestyle, even as the icecaps melt."
Now, after September 11, the "wounded Goliath is on the rampage," stuck in
a "perilous psychic gridlock of us/them, good/evil,"  he warns. Included in
AMERIKA PSYCHO is a firestorm of e-mails - both challenging and supporting
him - received in response to his provocative essays.

ISBN 1-876175-62-1  US$11.95


CHILE - THE OTHER SEPTEMBER 11
An Anthology of Reflections and Commentaries on the 1973 Coup in Chile
Edited by Pilar Aguilera and Ricardo Fredes

Amidst the flood of books on 9/11, the editors remind the reader that
September 11 is the anniversary of another horrendous event - General
Pinochet's coup in 1973 against the democratically elected government of
President Salvador Allende. Includes articles, essays, speeches and poems
by Ariel Dorfman, J0an Jara, Salvador Allende, Pablo Neruda, Beatriz
Allende, Victor Jara and Fidel Castro.
