The Syndicate The Story Of The Coming World Government (Paperback)
|Author: Nicholas Hagger|
|This highly topical and controversial work provides an alternative view of 20th century history. It describes the activities of a small group of men whose wealth and influence have been grossly underestimated. It gives the background to the war on terror, and points out the dangers in the increasing trend towards world government.|
From the Publisher:
Is there a common thread behind globalization, the EEC, and war in the Middle East? Why did we invade Iraq when the reasons given - weapons of mass-destruction and links with al-Qaeda - turn out to be wrong? Is it really the war on terror we should be most concerned about, or are we looking the wrong way?|Nicholas Hagger places these events in the context of the last 100 years, and in doing so provides a controversial and challenging re-reading of history. From the Russian revolution to the present day it is money and oil that have driven events, rather than random individual acts of evil and aggression on the one hand, or the pursuit of liberty and democracy on the other. And behind these events there is a pattern, an inexorable drive to world government. Behind the pattern there are shadowy interests and organisations that undermine the integrity of nation-states and threaten to usher in a new and frightening era.
