Oil, Power, & Empire is an invitation to "take the red pill" and see the truth behind the matrix of lies which the Bush administration has been promoting. The accuracy and clarity of Larry's presentation will be a real challenge to anyone whose sense of security is based on the idea that the present administration is being honest about what drives its agenda in Iraq, and what its plans for our future here in the "homeland" are. If you're ready for the challenge of being dis-illusioned, Larry's book is the place to start.

I just saw Larry Everest on CSpan as well. This man is no nutcase-- he makes the kind of sense that gives a chilling credibility to one's worst suspicions and fears about what is going on in this country right now. I knew nothing about him or his book but I'm about to buy it innediately!

Format: Paperback
I've been watching Richard Clarke on TV tell how Bush was focused on Iraq from day one, and how he pushed Clarke to link Iraq to Osama bin Laden after 911 - even though Clarke knew there was no connection. But no one asks the key question: WHY was Bush focused on Iraq and why did the US invade? Oil, Power and Empire clearly answers this question (and documents its answer!) -- and much, much more.
As Daniel Ellsberg wrote in his blurb: "This remarkable account of US and UK policy toward Iraq--from its founding as a British colony after World War I to the immediate present--is brilliantly illuminating in an almost literal sense. It's as if the author had suddenly turned the lights on in the dark cellar of American foreign policy in the Middle East. Highly readable, studded with cogent, often startling quotations, the story is at the same time soberly told, factual and horrifying: but above all, enlightening. I can't recommend it too highly for the many struggling to fathom how America came to the present calamitous role of occupying Iraq against local resistance."

Format: Paperback
I have just finished reading this book, and I just find it very fascinating in how Larry Everest lays forth the background to the current events in the Middle East, and how it is key for very powerful forces to make sure that they stay on top of the heap. This book pulls no punches in terms of what is going on and it brings together the entire situation by looking at the big picture and not just events separated from one another. Another big plus about this book is that when you read the book, you get a sense that you are in a room just chatting and hanging out with Larry Everest there is a back and forth between him, you and other folks discussing this book and what it means, and how do we go about changing the world and seeing that there are other choices for which way the future should be. That we do not have to choose between the Malevolent Mouse and the Mad Mullahs. This book is a must read for any one seeking to make sense of the events in the Middle East and the world today.

Format: Paperback
Before I started reading Oil Power Empire I had knowledge of the various topic areas but not the detailed analysis or keen insights outlined in this book. Now I feel more confident when I discuss Iraq because I am clearer on the historical background, both politically and economically. I like the way Everest cites the facts. It enables me to theorise on possible future political outcomes. This book is for every American that is seeking an intelligent understanding of foreign policy in Iraq and wishes to participate through solutions based on standard principles versus global domination.

Format: Paperback
This is the best book of its type i've yet come across. Very complete, detailed, highly readable. Makes one mad, but it ends on a somewhat positive note, indicating some cause for hope. The author has fully documented all facts and allegations.
