New Year, New Country? What Arianna Is Reading Next

Happy 2010. It's time for the first HuffPost Book Club selection of the new year. But instead of jumping on the New Year, New You lose weight, find a better job, etc., etc., we'd like to start something new for 2010: New Year, New Country.

The last decade has seen a disturbing trend away from transparency, and the rise of powerful cabals running things behind the scenes. Arianna's next Book Club selection examines and exposes some of these shadowy groups. You'll want to read this book -- it shows clearly where America is heading if we don't do something about the web of interconnected conflicts of interest that have turned our democracy into the political equivalent of a bazaar - with public policy up for sale.

So come back tomorrow for the big announcement, and the schedule of HuffPost Book Club events planned throughout the month of January. We hope you not only like this one, but that you'll read it, engage in the discussion and take up the call to action.
