Secret American Empire - BCover

The Secret History of the American Empire

Former Economic Hit Man John Perkins goes behind the scenes of the current geopolitical crisis and offers bold solutions to our most pressing problems. Drawing on his own experiences as well as interviews with other EHMs, jackals, CIA operatives, reporters, businessmen, and activists, Perkins reveals the conspiracy of corruption that has fueled instability and anti-Americanism around the globe, with consequences reflected in our daily headlines. Having raised the alarm, Perkins passionately addresses how Americans can work to create a more peaceful and stable world for future generations.

“Perkins is both alarming and entertaining, writing with the cutting precision and wit of a hard-boiled novelist.” - Rocky Mountain News

“Perkins' books have helped me better understand something that has been puzzling me for a long time: Why have so many resource-rich countries in the developing world remained steadfastly poor? The answers he gives are both complex and uncomfortable, and none of us in the first world can abrogate responsibility easily.” - Sting

“Only by confronting the truth can we eventually create a world that works for all of us. John Perkins inspires us to get up and take action to create a more just and equitable world.” Jack Cranfield (Chicken Soup for the Soul series)
