BREAD & CIRCUSES: Our cover package in this issue contains four pieces: Sam Pizzigati and George Monbiot show how bosses are becoming richer as everyone else gets poorer, while Filip Reyntjens and Helen Cowie tell us about the soccer team that is being sponsored by a poverty-stricken state, and the demise of lion taming. In other top stories, Rebecca Gordon warns about Trump’s love of weaponised drones, photographer Dougie Wallace gives us a 6-page glimpse at the bizarre fate of women in Saudi Arabian shopping malls, James Hamill remembers the birth of apartheid in South Africa, CJ Hopkinstakes a cynical look at democracy, and Linh Dinh pays his final respects to Philadelphia. We’ve also got Conn Hallinan on Iran sanctions, Lee Camp on the Pentagon’s missing trillions, Kathy Kelly on Yemen, and more great reading.
