"One sees why this book is scheduled for January. Otherwise the tsunami of public indignation at this revelation could well disrupt the election."―Inside Higher Ed
"In this well-researched and highly-readable work, Professor Davidson has drawn from a wide variety of historical sources and examples to demonstrate how a vast network of private interests, mostly tied to larger corporate structures, has succeeded in hijacking U.S. foreign and military policy to the detriment of any rational public agenda. This tragic state of affairs has been made possible, Davidson argues, because public apathy regarding global issues has been steadily increasing. Foreign Policy, Inc. is strongly recommended reading for scholars, politicians, journalists, and others interested in the American role in world politics today."―Carl Boggs, author of Imperial Delusions and coauthor of The Hollywood War Machine
"Serves as a useful corrective to conservative mythmaking regarding US foreign policy, past and present. Recommended."―Choice
"Davidson takes it a step further...his conclusions he lays directly in front of the doors of all of us."―Steve Goddard's History Wire

I would have liked to see more examples and perhaps some discussion of the Mearsheimer book as well, but this is a brief book. Certainly worth the read for those who wonder why our new administration has not made more serious inroads in our often counterproductive foreign policy practices.
