This book chronicles the work and findings of the Hearings Before the Special Committee to Investigate Tax-Exempt Foundations and Comparable Organizations in the House of Representatives during the 2nd Session of the 83rd Congress on House Resolution 217. It was more commonly known as the "Reece Committee", so named for its chairman, Congressman Carroll Reece. The book was written by the General Counsel to the Committee, Rene A. Wormser. The preface was written by the Chairman himself, Carroll Reece. The Research Director of the Committee, Norman Dodd, gave a video-taped interview many years later in which he discussed further details surrounding the investigation and hearings, including the startling findings of the Committee's Legal Analyst, Kathryn Casey.
According to Mr. Dodd, in response to a letter he had written to the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace asking certain questions about their history and operations, he was issued an invitation via telephone to go to their office in New York and meet with some of their representatives. He accepted the invitation, and when he arrived he was greeted by the President of the Foundation, Dr. Joseph Johnson, two vice presidents, and their legal counsel. They suggested to Mr. Dodd that he send a member of his staff to New York for two weeks and they would provide that person with a room in their library and the minute books of the foundation from its inception to the present. Dodd realized that most of these men were new in their positions, and preoccupied with other matters of greater importance to them, so he accepted the offer, knowing that none of them had ever likely read any of those minutes.Read more ›

This is one of the most important books that every American should read and own for a factual accounting of the NGO's power over our government and private welfare of each and every citizen. I would highly suggest purchasing Radio Liberty's "The Secret Government" on tape:
[ ASIN:B000MILFVS Radio Liberty: The Secret Government (4 CD's 2-One Hour Interview & 1-Two Hour Interview) ]
or CD (directly from Radio Liberty). Hopefully the CD version will be available soon on Amazon. You can as they say, hear it directly from the horses' mouth with interviews from Norman Dodd concerning "The Enemies Within" and "Tragedy & Hope: A History of the World in Our Time" by Carroll Quigley and Dr. Monteith on the true nature of GeoPolitics. Radio Liberty with their much valued and pertinent books, audio and video along with Dr. Stanley Monteith's audio reading will bring home to you a wealth of need-to-know information.
Before I begin I would like to say how astonished I am at the lack of reviews for this tremendously important scholarly work. This book not only demands importance due to it's strict adherence to truthful and factual documentation, but is absolutely essential for understanding why American society is in the shape it is in politically, as-well as economically. With that said, a book of similar importance, Tragedy and Hope by Carroll Quigley, very important in its own right, nonetheless has more reviews despite being drastically shadowed by this book in an absolute sense.
The book is a documentation of the findings from the 82nd Congressionally appointed committee nicknamed, "The Reece Committee," which was given the task of investigating tax-exempt foundations; of prime significance the Ford, Rockefeller, and Carnegie respectively.
In a more refined sense, the committee was instructed to the investigation of what significance, if any, were the foundations using their resources for "un-American and subversive activities; for political purposes; propaganda, or attempts to influence legislation."
The results and findings lay inside this highly important work.
Consequently, one must keep in mind that the book itself was not written by the committee; but rather by Rene A. Wormser, who acted as Counsel of the committee during its lifetime. However this does not in any way take away from the truthfulness of the findings. Wormser adheres strictly to the facts of what the committee mined out of Americas dark past and at that time, present. Also the chair of the committee, Carroll Reece, writes the preface in which he testifies to the objectivity of the book.
Overall, highly recommended if you can handle the truth.
This is the book of the life-time. This book reveals the foundations that the elite are using that are not in the best interest of the citizens of the united states, a major major piece of work, this is a RARE, HARD TO FIND book that was suppressed by the establishment, once you read it you will understand why, the corrupt bought and paid for media will never write or report like this book divulges, this is the book,,,,,

I became aware of this book through a publication of the John Birch Society. Along with the Carroll Quigley book, the works of the late Antony Sutton, and the few works detailing the results of the project known as "Venona", this forms the foundation of the real history beneath the layers of lies concocted by several generations of academics and so-called "journalists" who are really just corporate errand boys.
One interesting little-known aspect of the Reece Commission is that it was effectively short-circuited by the efforts of then Rep. Wayne Hayes, R-Ohio, otherwise notable in his career only for the episode that ended it, the exposure of his personal corruption by his "secretary" Elizabeth Ray, who came forward to state that she had been employed only as, in effect, a taxpayer-funded prostitute.
For those who balk at the time and expense required by this work, "None Dare Call It Conspiracy" by Gary Allen would be the popular alternative. It might be the most influential but least acknowledged book ever published.
