The author provides a short summary of Quigley's book.

I have yet read Quigley's magnum opus but intend on doing so when I have time to dedicate to the 1300 pages

"The Naked Capitalist" was written by W. Cleon Skousen as a sort of book report or summary of Dr. Carroll Quigley's 1300 + page tome "Tragedy and Hope - A History of the World in our Time. "
W. Cleon Skousen, after passing the D.C. Bar exam, was hired by the FBI in the capacity of a special agent. W. Cleon Skousen spent 16 years in J. Edgar Hoover's Bureau before leaving to teach at BYU.
Dr. Carroll Quigley was mostly known as professor of the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University; however, Professor Quigley also taught at other ivy league schools and served on various boards and panels for the government including the U.S. Navy and Department of Defense.
Dr. Quigley writes about a secret cabal of power brokers and investment bankers whose goal is a one world super state. Although the cabal started in England, it eventually was brought to the U.S. through J.P. Morgan and Rockefeller.
The Rhodes -Milner Group, as in Cecil Rhodes and Lord Alfred Milner, is a secret society formed by Cecil Rhodes in the later part of the 19th century with the goal of world domination. This group is the group that Dr. Quigley is writing about. This cabal used a series of sub groups called the "Roundtables" to institute their will across the globe. Some of the organizations created by the cabal are:
The Rhodes' Scholarship is one method of recruitment of new talent into the cabal.
"The Council on Foreign Relations" in the U.S. and their Counterpart in Britain "The Institute on Royal Affairs"
The following is a quote from Quigley's "Tragedy and Hope"
"The powers of financial capitalism had another far reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements, arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the worlds' central banks which were themselves private corporations. The growth of financial capitalism made possible a centralization of world economic control and use of this power for the direct benefit of financiers and the indirect injury of all other economic groups."
After reading the above quote, it is easy to understand why Skousen called his book "The Naked Capitalist". In "The Naked Capitalist" Skousen methodically removes the cover built up by the Rhodes-Milner cabal and leaves their plans naked for all to see.
I highly recommend reading "The Naked Capitalist" not only because the sheer length of "Tragedy and Hope" will deter some from obtaining knowledge of the true history of the twentieth century , but also because of the perspective of Skousen himself. Dr. Quigley wasn't opposed to the goals of the cabal, he just didn't believe it should be kept secret. Unlike Quigley, Skousen was totally opposed to these goals. "Tragedy and Hope" was published in 1966. The "Naked Capitalist" was published in 1970
