About the Author
F. William Engdahl is an award-winning geopolitical analyst, strategic risk consultant, author, and lecturer. He has authored nine books that have been translated into 14 foreign languages including Chinese, German, Japanese, including the international best-selling A Century of War: Anglo-American Oil Politics; Seeds of Destruction: The Hidden Agenda of Genetic Manipulation; Full Spectrum Dominance: Totalitarian Democracy in the New World Order His works trace the basis of the rise of the US as an international superpower, the emergence after 1945 of America as a new kind of Empire, one not based upon sole military occupation. It was an ‘informal empire,’ where control of finance, of the basic food chain, of energy—above all of oil, would be the basis for what would become the greatest concentration of power in history, an American Hegemon, after the collapse of the Soviet Union. William Engdahl grew up in Texas. After earning a degree in politics from Princeton University, and graduate study in comparative economics at Stockholm University, he worked as an economist and investigative journalist in the USA and Europe. He was Named Visiting Professor at Beijing University of Chemical Technology and delivers talks and private seminars around the world on different aspects of economics and politics with focus on geopolitical events. www.williamengdahl.com.

All that said, I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK to anyone interested in learning the true context by which to view and make sense of the "current global terror" situation. Clinging desperately to doctrines of "Full Spectrum Dominance" and "Sole Global Hegemony", an inevitably declining Anglo-American power structure resorts to unthinkable and unfortunately ill-considered methods to extend its raison d'etre.
Not a cute bedtime story - the subject is justifiably disturbing, and I am into my second read of this informative work.
