Global Research’s Online News Reader (N-Book) aims to take a top story in world events and present the best of our recent archive to give readers a condensed and informed overview of the topic. It will include a mix of news, analysis and backgrounder. In that way, we hope that you can stay informed of the most important developments with this handy authoritative reference. The News Reader (N-Book) will come out regularly as crucial stories unfold.

The first in our new series deals with the rising tensions in the Persian Gulf between the West and Iran and what appears increasingly to be a collision course for war. We examine the heart of the matter in order to empower our readers with knowledge and truth about what is really happening in the region and why, and, more importantly, what is at stake.

By providing a focus on an important current news topic, the GR Online N-Book News Reader complements Global Research’s Online Interactive I-Book Reader, which brings together, in the form of chapters, a collection of Global Research feature articles, including debate and analysis, on a broad theme or subject matter.  To consult our Online Interactive I-Book Reader Series, click here.
