On the show this week, Chris Hedges discusses the emergence of the global police state with Professor William I. Robinson.

Robinson in his new book, The Global Police State, uses shocking data to reveal how far capitalism has become a system of repression. He argues the emerging megacities of the world are becoming the battlegrounds where the excluded and the oppressed face off against the global police state.

Robinson is a professor of sociology at the University of California, Santa Barbara. His work focuses on political economy, globalization, Latin America and historical material.
