This week on Talk World Radio we’re talking about Smedley Butler with the author of a terrific new biography called Gangsters of Capitalism: Smedley Butler, the Marines, and the Making and Breaking of America’s Empire. The author, Jonathan Katz, based here in Charlottesville, Virginia, as most of the coolest people are, received the James Foley/Medill Medal for Courage in Journalism for reporting from Haiti. His first book, widely praised, was The Big Truck That Went By. You can find him at https://jonathanmkatz.com
