SouthFront: Analysis & Intelligence is glad to inform that our friend and the long standing ally – the Saker – released his book: “The Essential Saker” .
The book includes some of the most essential articles written by the Saker on his blog. They cover topics ranging from history, to politics, to religion, to military affairs, to social issues and are dedicated to the full-spectrum clash between the Western world and what the Saker calls the “Russian civilizational realm”.
The Saker’s message:
It is a huge joy for me to finally announce to you that my first book, “The Essential Saker: from the trenches of the emerging multipolar world” is now finally out in hard (paper) format and as an Kindle ebook. This book is a collection of what I consider my most important articles written for the blog over the past years. This is a big book (600 pages!) and it includes a full index. The date of writing for each articles is always mentioned. Pepe Escobar has kindly agreed to write a foreword.
I will be honest with you: While I am very happy with the book and while I fully stand behind every word I wrote in this book, I am also acutely aware – as is my publisher – that certain minorities and special interest groups will be absolutely incensed at what I dared to write. So my options are simple: either the mainstream media will completely ignore me or they will engage into a smear and defamation campaign accusing me of all the imaginable evils possible. So my only hope is you and your ability to spread the news about this book by word of mouth. I would therefore ask for your support in promoting this book, be it by an article, or by writing a review or by any other means you might have (Twitter, Facebook, friendly websites, etc.).
If you are going to get the book from Amazon, please get it by clicking on the little widget above – every time Amazon sells a book coming from this widget on my page and get a few cents for me and, as we all know, every cent helps!
One more thing: I asked that the ebook version be stripped from any form of DRM encryption: the book is therefore easy copy. My position on this is simple: if at all possible, please download a paid copy or, better, get the hardcover (paper) book. This is the best way to support my work (and my publisher’s courage!). But if you must – the ebook is really *yours* and you can do with it whatever you want.
Speaking of ebooks, if the Amazon Kindle format AZW (a version of MOBI) does not suit you – please download the fantastic and free program CALIBRE: http://calibre-ebook.com/ . CALIBRE works on GNU/Linux, OSX and even Windows! It is, by far, the best, ebook management program and it can easily convert the AZW format into any of the following ebook formats: EPUB, DOCX, FB2, HTMLZ, OEB, LIT, LRF, MOBI, PDB, PMLZ, RB, PDF, RTF, SNB, TCR, TXT, TXTZ and ZIP. Also, if you cannot do that yourself, you can contact my publisher, Fred Zimmerman, at Nimble books and he can help:http://www.nimblebooks.com/index.php/saker.html
So get the book, spread the word, write a review on Amazon (that is very important!), tell your friends and contacts and help me get the message out!
Many thanks to you all, hugs and cheers,
PS: I am thinking of offering an autographed copy of the book either for some minimal donation amount. If you are interested, please drop me an email. [SF: you can contact the Saker via firstname.lastname@example.org]
