… Which, needless to say, she explains far more competently in the video than I could hope to. Even better news, for fans of Dr. Maddow: Crown Publishing not only sent me a copy of DRIFT: The Unmooring of American Military Power, I’ve got a signed hardback copy to give away to one of you lucky readers. Haven’t finished reading my copy yet, but so far it’s both brisk and informative — as anyone who’s listened to Maddow would expect.
So, the Contest: I’ll be re-posting this entry tomorrow, for people who go to bed early or don’t read Balloon Juice on the weekends. Then, between 7pm and 8pm EDT, WordPress willing, I’ll put up a post labelled “CONTEST: Rachel Maddow’s Drift”. The writer of Comment #[redacted] on that post wins the book… and the rest of you can place your pre-orders in time for Tuesday’s release.
While this isn’t optimal for BJ’s overseas readers, it’s the least unfair method I can come up with to give as many people as possible a chance at winning. Any suggestions, please leave me a comment below!
