Book review: The iPINIONS Journal - Commentaries on the Major Events of Our Times: Volume VI by Anthony L. Hall
Published on May 2, 2011 Email To Friend    Print Version

As if to remind us of the swift passage of yet another year of world history, Caribbean News Now op-ed columnist Anthony Hall has recently published his sixth retrospective compendium of insight and observations on the major events of our times.

Hall’s latest look back -- The iPINIONS Journal - Commentaries on the Major Events of Our Times: Volume VI -- covers his usual wide range of subjects, including Sports (“Where the Winter Olympics, World Cup, and even women’s basketball figure far more prominently than the travails of Tiger, LeBron, or any other sporting event”); and Entertainment (“Where ‘That’s entertainment’ degenerates into brain-dead competition on American Idol and Dancing with the Stars”).

Once again, the latest volume is conveniently ordered by topic, making it easy for the reader to refer to particular sections and items of interest.

Of particular interest to our readers will be the regional perspective Hall brings to much of his commentary, including a section on the Caribbean: “Where Cuba’s belated enlightenment is surpassed by Haiti’s chronic despair.”

Anthony L. Hall is a descendant of the Turks & Caicos Islands, international lawyer and political consultant - headquartered in Washington DC - who publishes his own weblog, The iPINIONS Journal, at http://ipjn.com offering commentaries on current events from a Caribbean perspective
For Hall, like Shakespeare, all the world’s a stage, and all the men and women are players (often to be lampooned), with their entrances and their exits (“where it never ceases to amaze me how soon they are forgotten”).

As always, Hall tackles all of these topics and many more with his trademark confidence, flair and humour.

Informed, provocative, entertaining and comprehensive, remarkably, Hall has outdone himself yet again in his latest volume.

Highly recommended reading.

The iPINIONS Journal - Commentaries on the Major Events of Our Times: Volume VI is now available at Amazon and all other major booksellers. But the best deals are at Barnes and Noble.
