From the Back Cover
Does America have a hidden oligarchy? Is U.S. foreign policy run by a closed shop? What is the Council on Foreign Relations? It began in 1921 as a front organization for J.P. Morgan and Company. By World War II it had acquired unrivaled influence on American foreign policy. Hundreds of U.S. government administrators and diplomats have been drawn from its ranks - regardless of which party has occupied the White House. But what does the Council on Foreign Relations stand for? Why do the major media avoid discussing it? What has been its impact on America's past - and what is it planning for the future? These questions and more are answered by James Perloff in The Shadows of Power.

Many other things are perfectly believable, such as the disconnect, that still exists, between the common people and the most powerful members of the establishment that truly rule and determine internal and external police, etc. And yes, the participation of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) that few are aware of, makes it without doubt a shadow government.
Well, that said, I recommend the book, but always keep handy a grain of salt or two when you read it.
