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)

Format: Hardcover
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.

Format: Hardcover
The orthodox history of the Russian Revolution, like most "official histories", always seems somehow superficial, facile, lacking certain crucial details, despite the vast amount of literature available on the subject. One of the most important considerations when viewing major events in human history is always the question of who provided financial backing; this naturally shows who supported the idea and their subsequent behaviour often shows why. Or in other words, follow the money. The orthodox historiography of the Russian Revolution does not include, like so much else which threatens the status quo, detailed analysis of the financial backing and behind-the-scenes organisation which must go into a successful revolution. Instead we are treated to a deluge of pompous and nonsensical verbiage from the so-called revolutionaries themselves while the real revolutionaries, the instigators and planners, skulk back to their richly-appointed holes.

This book is the first in a series of three by British-born researcher Antony Sutton, the point of which is to irrefutably demonstrate Wall Street promotion and support of barbaric socialist regimes in the twentieth century in order to create captive markets for government-backed monopolies, and also to control international markets by creating false competition and various other deceptions.

Format: Hardcover
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.
