Given the title of the book, I had looked forward to an exposition of the role of international banking and Zionism in the American Empire. And there was some of this contained between the covers of this work. But, mostly the book consisted of Marxist rhetoric, which is long on volume and sadly short on cogent reasoning.
The few sections of the book that actually dealt with Zionism and militarism were well done. But this was far less than half of the total contents. Most of the book had to do with a Marxist analysis of class struggle. And this is pretty much useless for those who honor sound reasoning.
In summary, we cannot highly recommend this book of Dr. Petras. Those sections on Zionism and militarism are worthwhile. But the bulk of the book is not. God bless.
the very vital UN-British'Israel'-Masonic con-
nection though. Though his book is very well
written it IS emblematic of the hit-v.misses
style of New World Order 'blame-game' that
permeates the right wing. Though Petras is
only himself slightly to the right. Zionism
sucks as does debt money. Certainly there is
a connection, but the zionists themselves are
not the big 'kahuna nui's of the New World Odor!
