Format: Paperback
Many of us are familiar with U.S. president Dwight D. Eisenhower's farewell speech to the nation on January 17, 1961, in which he warned the American public to "guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence" of the "military-industrial complex." A less known quote from the same speech sets the tone for the Collins brothers' incredibly erudite tome: "... we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite."

This book discloses exactly who these technological elite (technocrats) are; that they've been working behind the scenes for centuries, and public policy has indeed become its captive. Its aspiration has always been the implementation of a sociopolitical, technocratic utopian world order.

The breadth and scope of Philip and Paul Collins' massive study is nothing short of dazzling. "The Ascendancy of the Scientific Dictatorship" is a meticulous examination of a shared ideological construct centuries in the making. This elite circle of technocrats hasn't simply carried forth a unified grand master plan, however; the Collins brothers stress the fact that what we are dealing with is a "conspiracy of ideas," whose adherents have developed into a powerful "epistemological cartel."

Reading "The Ascendancy of the Scientific Dictatorship" is to embark on an intellectual journey of the highest order. The Collins brothers effortlessly discuss a wide range of philosophical concepts, all of which are integral to understanding the thinking and development of those behind the formation of a would-be technocracy. There simply isn't any other book that is even in the same league.

This is the first edition. The new 2006 revised version, however, has an extra 200+ pages of material. See ISBN 1419639323 (authors Paul & Phillip Collins).

Format: Paperback
Content: 4 1/2 stars, Format: 2 stars

Other reviewers covered the gist of the book, but there are a few things that needed pointing out. The book is rather amatureishly put together and edited, which is confusing since it is a "revised" edition. For example:

1. No Table of Contents
2. No Index-a huge issue that makes it an exercise in tedium to look stuff up
3. Despite having a dedications page, there is no one on it
4. A division into 3 "chapters" of 100+ pages
5. The subdivisions within the chapters are haphazard and extremely few and far between
6. The book self-references its subdivisions in the text, but doesn't give page numbers
7. He uses SPLC (Southern Poverty Law Center) as a source several times, despite their reputation for tabloid-style reporting and dishonesty

In addition to the above lacunae, the final chapter of the work leaves much to be desired, as its tone is that of a series of miniature book reports on diverse subjects, a lot of which comes off as half-baked or just plain silly(e.g. Arnold Schwarzenagger as a candidate for the head of a white supremacist coup in California). Many of the topics in the final chapter weren't developed or concluded well, instead, the authors simply jumped to a new topic without even trying to make a logical progression. In one instance, they bring up Nominalism, but drop it after a page or two, despite its enormous impact, something that's especially odd considering that on the back cover it claims that one of the book's main topics is "Nominalism and radical empiricism as instruments of epistemological manipulation" Finally, while I didn't mind their religious inclusions, it would have been nice if they outlined their own religious position at the start, perhaps in an introduction.

This book is essential for those who want to understand the ideological roots of the globalists trying to bring about the New World Order. This book is well researched and filled with footnotes. The bibliography is enough of a reason to purchase this book.

Get the latest version of this book. It is excellent. The yellow cover of this book is for the older release.

This book is excellent. It ties together the players in this NWO.

It shows why the NWO seems to be at opposition with someone else.

The truth is that the Bush NWO team have opposition from the more socialistic elite eg. French and Russia, who want a more communist NWO.

Their formation of this NWO is not absolute; at least not yet.

This coincides with the bible showing this NWO as being iron mingled with clay. Due to opposition from their elite brothers, their rule will not be a complete foot on our neck. We are in sooo much trouble with these NWO people. We are screwed America unless you wake up.

This book is very professionally done and well researched.

I think that this book takes the time to show what has been planned for decades if not centuries. The elite think that we are sheep.

They have a plan for an American Union soon. It will be just like the European Union. Sovereignty of the U.S. is almost completely gone. America has been stolen. Blame the Bush Family, Rockerfeller, Rhodes,Rothchilds, DuPont, Fords. Most of these families supported Hitler during WWII.
