    1. This is a collection of columns written by humorist Terry Jones, beginning in in 2001 shortly after the terrorist attacks of September 11, and leaving off after Iraq's provisional government was granted limited sovereignty in the summer of 2004. Jones, known for his work with the Monty Python troupe and for his own books (including a controversial scholarly work on Chaucer), was a phlegmatic critic of the Bush presidency, and of the aid and comfort led to the American President by UK Prime Minis [...]


    2. This is a collection of essays written by Terry Jones of Monty Python fame regarding the war on terrorism and the run up to the Iraq War. Now, I like Monty Python as much as the next person. Quite a bit more, in fact, but I see no reason for this book to exist. I'm not sure why Terry Jones feels we should care what he thinks about this situation. He has been known to write some funny stuff, but this sure isn't it. It switches from sarcasm to satire to serious and none of them are particularly fu [...]


    3. L'ex-Monty Python Terry Jones offre là une série de satires politiques d'une grande intelligence et avec un humour sans pareil. Polémiste hors pair, il démontre qu'une bonne dérision vaut mieux qu'un long discours pour démonter les arguments de la "guerre contre le terrorisme".Principal défaut de ce livre, ces chroniques ont été publiées dans divers journaux et l'auteur a tendance à se répéter d'un texte à l'autre. Cependant, certaines d'entre elles sont mémorables, dont le dialog [...]


    4. Funny and scathing and intelligent, as one would expect from Terry Jones, Oxford-taught historian and Circus member. But we've had Change (tm) now, so dwelling on Bush/Blair/Iraq/terror/etc/dumbness is not high on my to do list. Would have liked to have picked this up in 2005 when it was published.


    5. As much as I like the ex-Python and his viewpoints, this book was not as good as I hoped. He is witty and his anger towards Tony Blair is heartwarming, but this being a collection of articles he wrote between 2001 and 2004, he does repeat himself, a lot. His views on language always being the first casualty of a war is original, though.


    6. A collection of columns from the Guardian, I believe. It's a fast read, but I recommend spacing this one out over several weeks, as if you were reading a weekly column. Read too quickly, they can become tedious.


    7. Compilation des chroniques d'un ex-Monty Python à l'humour assez grinçant. Un regard féroce sur l'actualité post 11 septembre.
