Editorial Reviews

Review

'Sutton comes to conclusions that are uncomfortable for many businessmen and economists. For this reason his work tends to be either dismissed out of hand as 'extreme' or, more often, simply ignored.' - Richard Pipes, Baird Professor Emeritus of History, Harvard University (quoted from Survival Is Not Enough: Soviet Realities and America's Future) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

The book ends with several appendices.
New Age of Barbarism
The fact is that without U.S. business executives both in the "private sector" and government, the Bolshevik Revolution would have failed.
James E. Egolf
I will only say I found this book worth reading, and I recommend it for all history buffs.

The contents of this book will both shock and disgust you. This book shows the costs and negative side of 'engagement' advocated by the American Establishment and their boot-licking cronies in academia and 'think tanks'. Sutton draws upon govenment files, books, newspaper clippings and biographies to support his claims.
He shows that the American government intervened on the behalf of Leon Trotsky, who was detained by Canadian authorities, so he could travel to Russia and agitate for the Reds. Apparently Trotsky might have been German instead of Russian, but in the end I guess we'll never know for sure. Both Trotsky and Lenin were sent into Russia with money and assistance from foreign governments to stir up trouble.
This book also goes into detail on the 1917 American Red Cross mission to Russia which had more bankers than doctors. William Thompson, then a Director of the New York Fed, gave $1 million to the Reds for propaganda purposes. He then brought enough of his Wall Street buddies on board that the Bolsheviks were their guys, to bring the White House over to their side. Wilson's influential advisor at that time was Edward Mandell House, who in Phillip Dru: Administrator stated that he believed in socialism as envisioned by Karl Marx, but with a spiritual leavening. With advisors as such, it was not so difficult.
House also used his influence to get Red agitator Minor, who drew a cartoon showing Wall Street types fawning over Marx in the introduction to the book, off the hook after being arrested by military authorities in France for distributing subversive Bolshevik propaganda. His daddy was a well-to-do person back in Texas, where House came from, who gave good old E.M. House a call to get junior off the hook.

Professor Sutton provides us with another remarkable tool that goes far towards exposing the lie of the 'spontaneous rise of the Bolsheviks,' and the culpability of American financiers in this traitorous history. Accessing State Department records, personal diaries, biographies and conventional sources Sutton presents a wealth of data that these evil, parasitic overlords would like to see buried. He uncovers little known stories such as America's Red Cross Mission to Russia in 1917 whose contingent included more financiers than medical personnel. More time was spent negotiating business contracts with Kerensky than tending the sick and wounded. Rockefeller agent William Thompson funneled $1 million to Lenin just for propaganda purposes! Years later Kruschev would maintain that he constantly received codes, money and secret government reports via Rockefeller dominated CIA 'Quislings.' Interestingly, The Federal Reserve Bank (which the Rockefeller's own! [see also; 'The Federal Reserve Conspiracy' by Dr. Emmanuel Josephson] was located at 120 Broadway in NYC. The principal conduit between the banking community and the Bolsheviks was The American Intermational Corp. located at 120 Broadway. The Guggenheims and General Electric (major financiers of the revolution) also had offices at 120 Broadway. This book is must reading for anyone trying to dig there way out of the morass of information and books that passes for 'history.' It should be read by every school child, along with Sutton's other books.

The Work of Antony Sutton!

Most Americans have not heard of Dr. Antony Sutton...but he is well known to the quasi-underground readers of revisionist history and
conspiracy theory...
There are others that have written about the same subjects as Sutton...Carrol Quigley(Professor of History at Georgetown University)...Werner Keller...Dr. Emanual Josephson...Gary Allen...Charles Levinson...etc...but none covered the subject in as great a detail and as broad an area and with the documentation that Sutton did...in Wall Street And The Bolshevik Revolution(Arlington House Publishers) he documents that a small group of Wall Street bankers financed the Bolshevik Revolution...in the 3 volume,Western Technology And Soviet Economic Development(Hoover Institution Press)these same groups actually built the
Soviet economic structure from 1917 to the
present...and it is this work, i believe,(in part) and the work of others documenting this subject that helped bring down the Soviet Union...if they financed the Revolution and built the economic infrastructure...then they controlled it...which is what they are doing today with the billions of dollars they are investing in the Peoples Republic of China...! Control of the economic structure of a country is real power not political power...!
Sutton has written about many other subjects but it is the above mentioned that are amoung the more important works...i believe they are available at...
www.amazon.com... you won't look at International Politics in the same way...again...

Should be read in tandem with Tragedy and Hope, to understand how the invisible power structure work to shape world events. A must read for those who wants to gain a coherent understanding with regards to the origins of the Cold War.
