Dave Cogswell-Hoboken Writer Publishes new Book

Tom Dwyer
x4bcover.jpg I first met Dave Cogswell, the author of the just published book Existentialism For Beginners in the early 1980’s. He was the owner of a fantastic bookstore in Hoboken called Blackwater Books.  A  bookstore with such character and personality  that it soon became the gathering place for booklovers who loved  intense debates on books and politics, and  a place to just hang and  read or buy a good book. Dave is passionate when it comes to politics. His website, Headblast is one of the top political websites around—and is banned in China.  He has written thousands of articles on business, travel, politics, and the arts for various print and online publications, including Online Journal, Democratic Underground, Bushwatch, Indymedia.org, Fortune.com, Travel Weekly, the Hudson Current and the Jersey Journal. He’s the author of Chomsky For Beginners, and has contributed pieces to a number of political books, including Fortunate Son: The Making of an American President, by J.H. Hatfield; Ambushed: The Hidden History of the Bush Family by Toby Rogers; and America’s Autopsy Report, by John Kaminski. He is currently working on a book about corporatism.
