In his stunning memoir, "Confessiuons of An Economic Hit Man" which spent more than a year on the N.Y. Times Bestseller list, John Perkins detialed his role in the 1970's and '80's in the international intrigues that created a de facto U.S. Empire. This riveting, behind-the-scenes expose unfolded like a cinematic blockbuster told through the eyes of a man who once helped shape that empire.
Now, in the Secret History of the American Empire, Perkins zeroes in on hot spots around the world, and drawing on interviews with other hit men, jackals, CIA operatives, reporters and activists, examines the current geopolitical crisis. Instability is the norm: It's clear that the world we've created is dangerous and no longer sustainable. How did we get here? Who's responsible? What good have we done and at what cost? And what can we do to change things for the next generations? Addressing these questions and more, Perkins reveals the secret history behind the events that have defined our world.
From the U.S. military in Iraq to infrastructure devlopment in Indonesia, from Peace Corps volunteers in Africa, to jackals in Venezuela, Perkins exposes a web of corruption and corporate skullduggery. Alrtming, yet hopeful, this account concludes with a clear-eyed look towards the future and a compassionate plan to reimagine our world.
