"...this book was a huge eye-opener. . . . Elich has written an amazin book. See for yourself what 'democracy' from America means to the rest of the world."—Paul Lappen, Midwest Book Review "A great book . . .no amount of praise can do it justice."—Sam B, Natna Blogspot "If the reader comes to this timely book believing much of the stories about Western good intentions or "rogue state" nefariousness, it will be a bitter pill to swallow, as these chapters are each backed up with a tremendous wealth of citations from reputable news outlets, including primarily "statements against interest." Yet, even if the reader is one who already is critical or suspicious of imperialism, the wealth of new information will open eyes yet further-and even challenge many perceptions already held. Simply put, this book is not to be missed, and to be lent to all who will read it."—Malcolm Stainsby, Online Journal "You should buy this book and read it and ask your libraries to purchase it. It is a must read for all progressive people who want to strengthen their understanding of contemporary imperialism and thus their ability not to be fooled by propaganda."—Norman Markowitz, Political Affairs "So how does one convey the nature of a rapacious, imperialist state to all but the already converted without reeling off statistics or resorting to lefty versions of sound bites? Elich does it with a good deal of sarcasm laced with irony, and then pours the facts on top as a rich source for us to relish . . . .gaining access to the facts is akin to an archaeological excavation that few have either the skill, understanding, or patience to undertake. Luckily, we have people like Elich to do the digging for us."—William Bowles, Investigating New Imperialism “Gregory Elich is the model investigative journalist of the anti-imperialist left: tenacious, thorough, penetrating, meticulous and above all, uncompromising. On Yugoslavia, North Korea, Zimbabwe, and Iraq, no one digs deeper, and no one uncovers more, than Elich.”—Stephen Gowans, political commentator, What’s Left “Gregory Elich is the model investigative journalist of the anti-imperialist left: tenacious, thorough, penetrating, meticulous and above all, uncompromising. On Yugoslavia, North Korea, Zimbabwe, and Iraq, no one digs deeper, and no one uncovers more, than Elich.” Stephen Gowans, political commentator, What’s Left “Gregory Elich offers a clear and vital analysis of the goals of private interests and their secret collusion with the Bush administration to cover up a broad range of dangers, from war to global warming. Scholars, researchers, and the lay public interested in US foreign policy will find this book both vital and illuminating.”—Lenora Foerstel, vice president of Women for Mutual Security, and author of Confronting the Margaret Mead Legacy “Gregory Elich has dedicated himself to skillfully unearthing and disseminating the information that typically goes unsaid. He provides us with the well-researched fundamentals we cannot and should not expect to get from our newspapers or televisions. Put another way, Elich teaches us to identify the ‘gates’ that restrict our freedom of thought.”—Mickey Z, author of The Seven Deadly Spins and 50 American Revolutions You’re Not Supposed to Know

From the Back Cover:

"Gregory Elich is the model investigative journalist of the anti-imperialist left; tenacious, thorough, penetrating, meticulous and above all, uncompromising. On Yugoslavia, North Korea, Zimbabwe, and Iraq, no one digs deeper, and no one uncovers more, than Elich."
Stephen Gowans, political commentator, What's Left

"Using a wealth of historic evidence and revelatory analysis, deep research and eye-witness investigation, Gregory Elich treats what lawyers call the `hard cases': Yugoslavia, Croatia, Zimbabwe, North Korea, and certain untouched questions about Iraq, issues that have been most thoroughly misrepresented in the corporate media and even by political commentators and activists who claim to be on the left. Elich wastes no time with genuflections to the dominant ideology. Instead he sticks to the awful facts and glaring truths that compose the underlying reality of the U.S. global empire. He ties in his deeply informed case studies to the wider issues of U.S. imperial policy, the broader questions of war and peace, and the general crisis that faces the entire world and the planet's ecology itself. Thereby he performs a most valuable service to persons all across the political spectrum."
Michael Parenti, author of The Culture Struggle, The Assassination of Julius Caesar and To Kill a Nation

"Gregory Elich offers a clear and vital analysis of the goals of private interests and their secret collusion with the Bush administration to cover up a broad range of dangers, from war to global warming. Scholars, researchers and the lay public interested in US foreign policy will find this book both vital and illuminating."
Lenora Foerstel,vice president of Women for Mutual Security, and author of Confronting the Margaret Mead Legacy

Mickey Z, author of The Seven Deadly Spins and 50 American Revolutions You're Not Supposed to Know

"For years, Gregory Elich has made his mark as a journalist-historian who pairs a special literary flair with a talent for uncovering real time, tightly held intelligence secrets. In this profoundly ominous time of modern history, there are precious few contemporary writers who brook no compromise with the truth. This volume stands tall, and the author is a special breed."
Louis Wolf, publisher of Covert Action Quarterly
