Editorial Reviews

Review

By far the best exposé of the way the US-UK governments have been taken over by rich, powerful families. -- S. Felton, Amazon.com, Jan. 2003

Incredibly well-referenced... You will quickly realize that this is not ancient history, but pertains to today's America. -- Al DeReu, keepgoing.org, Spring 2003

Massive, often revelatory research. --Kevin Phillips, American Dynasty, January 2004

About the Author

Webster Griffin Tarpley is an activist and historian best known for his George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography (1992), an underground classic. An expert on international terrorism with decades of experience, he directed the study Chi ha ucciso Aldo Moro? (Who Killed Aldo Moro?), which was commissioned by a member of the Italian government and published in Rome in 1978. He also co-authored American Leviathan: Administrative Fascism Under the Bush Regime (1991), which identified many tendencies which have become prominent today, and Surviving the Cataclysm (1999), an analysis of the world financial crisis. Against Oligarchy, a collection of his essays and speeches, appeared on the internet in 1996. He has appeared on CNN Crossfire, Charlie Rose, talk radio, and cable access television across North America.

Anton Chaitkin is an historian and investigative reporter. Chaitkin has written hundreds of articles on economic and political history and current affairs. His 1985 book Treason in America: from Aaron Burr to Averell Harriman, documented the takeover of U.S. policy by "blue-bloods" from their family archives.

Like father like son: During the 1930's Chaitkin's father, a New York attorney and Jewish political activist, carried out a legal fight against Wall Street and London financiers propping up the dictatorship of Adolf Hitler in Germany, resulting in the indictment of Prescott Bush, father of U.S. President George Bush (Sr).

He is co-author of George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography, which helped decide the 1992 election against Bush. He has collaborated with Lyndon LaRouche since 1966.

His footnotes and source material are number one.

Then there was that strange society that still remains, and which Poppy and Junior both belonged to at Yale, along with William F. Buckley Jr., "Skull and Bones."
William Hare
I highly recommend this book for readers wanting a better understanding of the important role that GHWB has played in American and world history.

Format: Paperback
The Bush family has spent millions projecting an image of 'down home' folks whose only concerns are 'faith' and 'family'. It's a pretty picture, but the authors of this book affirm that it is only an image. They are wolves in sheep clothing.

Since the days of their association with Hitler, the Bush family is only interested in power. However they get it and however they can keep it is the only thing which really matters to these people. Their obligatory talks about 'morals'...etc are just put in to give the illusion of caring about democracy. If they had their own way, the Bush family would have all of us living under a dictatorship.

This book is vastly different from most of the anti-Bush texts which flood the market. It eschews cheap shots to instead bring serious evidence against America's reigning monarchy. It also explains how Junior's 'bumblings' are only the more public versions of what daddy did dating back from his job as CIA head. Insteaad of being embarassed...etc the Bush family is actually proud of his actions!

Format: Paperback
Tarpley's massive and insightgful history of the rise of the Bush family to power and prominence - should be required reading for every high school (yeah - PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOL) American history course - as it is for every sincere student of our nation's destiny - and yet, we may likely die dreaming that it someday will be. Well, if we can't seemingly do anything about the problem - at the least, we can get educated about what really happened in America over the past century - and why.

The pinnicle of Tarpley's achievement is that through the meticulous sorting of a myriad of research, the psychological portrait of 'Poppy' Bush emerges - a tragic and disturbing figure - obsessed with a seemingly confused and distorted self-justifying version of patriotism - driven by a primal fear of personal failure - and, lest it never be said by any but the eloquent Tarpley - unmitigated guilt. Yet, to Tarpley's credit, the evidence is weighed sagely, without cant, without spin, and the facts are set forth to testify.

What sets Tarpley's classic biography apart is the richness of the narrative and the precision of the investigation. The details of how Nixon found his way into political power from obscurity in a few years - How the Bush family did as much for the Nazis (before, during, and after WWII) as they ever have done for the Republicans (the root ideological distinctions between the two parties seems as blurred now as ever) - and many other gordian mysteries of modern American history are deftly unravelled and spelled out in coherent fashion.

Whether you agree with him or not, you must take your issues to the facts themselves - and no one has marshaled them in the detail which Tarpley did way back in 1992 - and from thence, justify your conclusions.

Format: Paperback
If it walks like a conspiracy, talks like a conspiracy, and acts like a conspiracy, it is very possible that we might have a conspiracy. The apologists of the status quo, particularly the Bushies and the corporate establishment to which they are beholden, seek to ridicule books like this and say they are all part of an absurd conspiracy syndrome. What they fervently hope is that you will not dare read them. Had enough Americans read this sizzler it is entirely possible that Bush Junior's forces may not have been close enough on election night to remain within stealing distance of the presidential election, finally achieved through the legal prostitution of Federal Society cronies, including one subservient Uncle Tom with a penchant for Rush Limbaugh, namely Clarence Thomas.
When you read this book you wonder long and hard about whether this was really such an unfortunate coincidence that Bush Sr. in his mudslinging 1988 campaign had ardent Nazis working in his minorities division. It was only when Congressman Stephen Solarz and others sniffed the foul odor and rose up in indignation that the elder Bush expressed dismay and dismissed the miscreants, expressing shock in the process.
Just rewind from 1988 to Tarpley's analysis of how the Bush family got rolling in the banking business, with juicy contracts with the Nazis and strengthening of the Third Reich war machine through loans and subsequent sales for pig iron. Then there was that strange society that still remains, and which Poppy and Junior both belonged to at Yale, along with William F. Buckley Jr., "Skull and Bones." Just a few harmless fraternity pranksters? I doubt it.

Format: Paperback
I first encountered this book in the early 90's when subscribing to the LaRouche run newspaper "The New Federalist." The book was reviewed and advertised within it's pages along with the pages of the Schiller Institute's "Fidelio" magazine. As a young person who questions, and moreover, had reservations about the Bush family's legitimacy as leaders, this book became a godsend. This book is a masterpiece of research and "yes" does have an agenda. That agenda being to expose certain realities to our country's past, the Bush family's, that of secret societies, etc. This book obviously has critics. I mean let's face it, they're still in power. But this book did it's best to make a statement or propose an arguement for why our country could do better for itself and for the world at large. Regardless of it's flaws, or even those of the various Bush's, this book is cause for reflection and is worthy of anyone who claims to think for themselves.
