FULL SPECTRUM DOMINANCE is a rare and essential book -- one that orients readers quickly and deeply to the world we live in, and how we arrived here. William Engdahl presents the historical background of policy making and decision analysis that explains how the United States arrived at its present "mission" in the world. The value of Engdahl's brilliant book is not only that it familiarizes American readers with a history that is not usually revealed to us, but it also guides us through the many overt and covert tactics employed by the US for regime change-- primarily via the Pentagon and its nefarious weapons contractors, but also through various think tanks and foundations with innocuous names disingenuously referring to "democracy" and "freedom." The "full spectrum" of tactics and deceptions and tricks -- both violent and non-violent -- is revealed here. Needless to say, this book falls within the honorable tradition of political histories that blow the cover off America's much vaunted pretense and propaganda about serving the cause of "freedom" and "democracy" around the world! It is the only book available today that covers ALL of this, with ample quotations and documents from the architects of US policies, in just 250 well written pages. FULL SPECTRUM DOMINANCE is unique in presenting the evolution of CIA tactics, ranging from its crude "coups" of yesteryear (as in Iran and Guatemala) to its current -- and perhaps more insidious -- use of "non-violent" electronically manipulated technological "crowd control" via cell phones and (as is currently evident on the streets of Tehran) Twitter.Read more ›

F W Engdahl has succeeded again at the difficult task of explaining the complexities of how our world really works and how we got to this frightful point in world affairs.
An exacting researcher, Mr. Engdahl, with his latest book, has taken on the task of sorting out the USA's real intentions as it pertains to the rest of the world. In connecting the dots he takes us on a journey of clarity and comprehension regarding the aggressive path our nation is on as it builds the American Empire.
To follow Mr. Engdahl's logical explanations of why we do what we do to the rest of the world is to come to the realization that the US may not be the 'good guys' we think we are and the rest of the world may have plenty of reasons to be wary of the US.
A sobering examination of our real past and current policies towards Russia, China, Europe, the Middle East and the rest of world community, 'full spectrum dominance', as the Pentagon calls it, is a strong-arm policy of control over the rest of the world that is leading us down a disastrous path towards a possible world war. We can't solve our world's problems until we properly identify them. Mr. Engdahl has done that in superb fashion.

Engdahl's books are at the very top of my list of books I recommend to people who want to know what is happening geopolitically in the world, but more importantly WHY things are happening!
Engdahl, though an academic scholar and very well educated with years of experince has once again written a book that anyone can understand and which reads like a great documentary film, much due to the fact that Engdahl is also a journalist, historian and economic researcher!
Full Spectrum Dominance picks up where his first book on the subject "A Century Of War:Anglo-American oil politics and the new world order" ends.
Engdahl once again leads us through the matrix of anglo-american foreign policy and their century old agenda of literal world domination through brute force and covert non-violent means. The evil and criminal actions of the anglo-american empire throughout the 20th century which has now spilled over in to the new millenium are presented in great detail and just like Engdahls previous books makes for a page turner. Once again I cannot recommend this book enough! Read it!

I highly recommend William Engdahl's Full Spectrum Dominance: Totalitarian Democracy in the New World Order. Engdahl added another tour de force to his record with this well-researched volume. In Full Spectrum Dominance, Engdahl crafted an elegant examination of the geopolitics of the Anglo-American power imperium of today's world order.
I was particularly impressed with the compendious nature of Engdahl's writing. Engdahl conducted involved historical research and distilled complex geopolitical trends with such an economy of words in this volume. Engdahl fleshed out the vague and insubstantial details offered by the mainstream media regarding the 2008 Russia-Georgia War, the Color Revolution phenomenon, the geopolitical and geostrategic ramifications of the escalating rivalry between the US and China, as well as the realpolitik behind the putative push for democracy internationally by the US. The reader will find their fundamental world view challenged by Engdahl's well-supported research. By adhering to rigorous scholarly methods of citation and argumentation, Engdahl presented incisive, cogent proof for his postulations without obscuring the lens with dogma and pontification. Engdahl wrote a striking assessment of the US military-industrial complex with great forensic acumen. I've read many books on history and current events and this volume was one of the best. Full Spectrum Dominance was a masterful corollary to Engdahl's A Century of War: Anglo-American Oil Politics and the New World Order. Both books are indeed worthly of five stars.
