 The Report from Iron Mountain. £8.00  Anonymous,1967, 141 pp., paperback. (Cover not as shown.)

      

"...unveils a hitherto top-secret report of a [U.S.] government commission that was requested to explore the consequences of lasting peace on American society. The shocking results of the study, as revealed in this report, led the government to conceal the existence of the commission - they had found that , among other things, peace may never be possible, that even if it were, it would probably be undesirable, that " defending the national interest" is not the real purpose of war, that war is necessary; that war should be planned and budgeted." 

 

Seeds of Destruction (The Hidden Agenda of Genetic Manipulation) £12.50  F. W. Engdahl, Global Research, 2007, 341 pp. paperback.

          Seeds of Destruction: The Hidden Agenda of Genetic Manipulation

This skilfully researched book focuses on how a small socio-political American elite seeks to establish control over the very basis of human survival, the provision of our daily bread. "Control the food and you control the people.” This is no ordinary book about the perils of GMO. Engdahl takes the reader inside the corridors of power, into the backrooms of the science labs, behind closed doors in the corporate boardrooms. The author reveals a world of profit-driven political intrigue, government corruption and coercion, where genetic manipulation and the patenting of life forms are sure to gain world-wide control over food production.” Highly recommended.

 

The Unseen Hand. £12.95  A. Ralph Epperson, Publius Press, 1985, 488 pp., paperback.

           

Subtitled, An Introduction to the Conspitaratorial View of History. This book, for some time I believe, has been regarded as one of the standard must-read books on the international global (with apologies to flat-earthers) conspiracy.

 

News from Nowhere. £8.50  Edward J. Epstein, Ivan R.Dee, 1973, 321 pp., paperback.

            

"In an age when more of the public relies on television for its news than any other medium, Edward Jay Epstein's detailed, robing analysis, of the decision making process in network news organisations has achieved the status of a classic. Mr. Epstein shows how internal corporate policy and budget requirements, shape the direction of television news coverage. What we see on the network news, he demonstrates, does not mirror reality because TV's essential iam is not to inform but to excite viewers enough to induce them to "stay tuned."

 

the deliberate dumbing down of america £22.00  Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt, Conscience Press, 2011, 461 pp., paperback.

         

This remarkable book lays out in detail the subversive and not-so-subversive plans of educational change agents since 1900. It documents the planned movement from traditional teaching to social engineering in the classroom. What has created 'Generation Snowflake' is revealed in these pages. Ms. Iserbyt worked for a time in the U.S. Dept. of Education. Here she is blowing the whistle. This is 'the' book for anyone wanting to understand why the schools have gone to pieces. A tour de force. (09/17)

 

Vigilance. A defence of British Liberty. £8.00  Ashley Mote, Tanner, 2002, 279 pp., paperback.

              

"What a demolition job! Vigilance smashes huge holes in the walls which have long hidden the squalid truth about the European Union. One day this book may be banned. Our right to freedom of speech will have been abolished." After the Brexit, it appears that more people than expected may have read Mote and Adrian Hilton and Christopher Story. Nevertheless, to paraphrase J. W. Burgon, Those must have been wondrous drowsy days indeed in which 48.1% of British voters still fell for the EU scam.

 

Tragedy and Hope 101. £12.50  Joseph Plummer, Brushfire Publishing, 2014, 215 pp., paperback.

       

 "Based on the ground-breaking research of respected historian Carroll Quigley. Tragedy and Hope 101 reveals an unimaginably devious political system, skilfully manipulated by a handful of elite, which is undermining freedom and democracy as we know it. The goal of those who control the system, in Quigley's own words, is to dominate all habitable portions of the world. Using deception, theft and violence, they have achieved more toward this goal than any rulers in human history."

 

 Amusing Ourselves to Death. £8.00  Neil Postman, Methuen, 1987, 184 pp., paperback.

           

 "What Orwell feared were those who would ban books. What Huxley feared was there would be no reason to ban a book, for there would be no one who wanted to read one...In '1984', Huxley added, people are controlled by inflicting pain. In 'Brave New World' they are controlled by inflicting pleasure...This book is about the possibility that Huxley, not Orwell, was right." This is a remarkably perceptive work. It reveals the harm done by television as a medium, quite apart from the more obvious harm done by televised smut. (Listen to Neil Postman on 'Links')

 

 America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It. £8.50  Mark Steyn, Regnery Publications, 2008, 224pp., paperback.

             

"Mark Steyn's book ties together demography, Islam and welfare for a glimpse of the world the day after tomorrow. If you were to buy only two books this year, get two copies of America Alone - Books in Canada" Mark Steyn is a Canadian journalist, educated in Birmingham, England, currently residing in New Hampshire, USA. His books have been described as 'Apocalyptic Stand-Up'. He as been described as a one man global content provider. This book is a very gloomy demographic perspective on the nations of Europe told in frequently hilarious language. There is no strong profession of Evangelical Christian faith here and just occasionally one or two off-colour remarks, but the book is full of amazing facts and gives a rare yet tenable social and political comment. One of the best and most informative non-Christian books I have ever read. CT.
