3.0 étoiles sur 5 Insightful book, with some liberties taken 15 juin 2012
Par Christopher Rendall - Publié sur Amazon.com
Ok so after reading the reviews of others, and reading the book myself, I would like to offer my own thoughts and also correct some of the notions on both sides of the reviews (the 1 and 5 star people).

I enjoyed the book. It is a different way of looking at history, from a much more realistic point of view than the views that school history books give us (we ought to wonder who is feeding that history). It was definitely good to learn the connections between certain individuals, governments, foundations, etc, and their involvement in oil politics.

I also really liked to learn how propaganda was used to promote a certain viewpoint, and it was pretty wild to see how the effects usually were just as the propagandists planned. For example, and this is something I've known about for a long time, in America we are constantly being fed the Zero Population Growth propaganda, paid for by the elites who feed on America's consumerism. Do some real studying yourself and see that the "we are running out of space and food and the world is dying" message is a well-constructed lie, and yet, the overwhelming majority of the civilized world would probably agree. Propaganda works.

That said, my biggest complaint with the book is the lack of sourcing. Yes I realize that there are places throughout the book that he provides reliable sources, and there is the sources list in the back, but one cannot help but notice the amount of times he makes wild claims with absolutely no sources to back it up. He finds a source that takes him to 25% of his conclusion; then he fills in the rest himself, without mentioning that it is conjecture and not verifiable fact.

My other huge pet peeve is that he makes everything a conspiracy, and uses a conspiratorial tone in most of his writing. He will blatantly say things like "But Washington didn't care if the people went hungry" or "The British government was perfectly satisfied with the murder of millions." You just can't be an intellectually honest person and say things like that. "Washington" and "the British" are not persons you can analyze and then easily make blanket judgments about. Governments are made up of many people, with varying motives. History is not as black and white as the author seems to believe. And it should bring someone who jumped on his bandwagon pause to see that his other books are written in exactly the same tone. He is a conspiracy theorist to the bone.

That doesn't mean I agree with the 1 star reviewers who simply write him off saying that it's all nonsense. Those people are naïve in my opinion and I disagree. I think the book is worth reading, but do not so easily buy into his message wholeheartedly. Read the book slowly, understanding that he has a message to promote just like anyone else.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 5 Stars ! 9 juillet 2013
Par Arlene Raquel - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is a must read for all serious students of world history of the 20th century. The author lists many culprits of the on going seriers of war for oil, greed, and the self engrandisment of the merchants of death, aka "The Military-Industrial Complex". The founder of Royal Dutch Shell, Sir Henri Detderding is profiled here as a major backer of Hitler as were many industrials, in the United States & Europe. Deterding was a British and Dutch citizen. 5 Stars

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Must-Read for all Americans 27 juin 2013

This is an absolutely riveting book. It should be read by every American. Engdahl presents a comprehensive review of world events that have transpired over the past 100 years, revealing copious details that are left out of public school and college history texts. Now history makes sense to me. I never felt convinced that WWI was caused by an Archduke being assasinated by a nationalistic fanatic -- that was just a "black-op" engineered by world power brokers. The evil I see in todays world has just been evolving for a century, while the general public has been played like pawns in their blissful ignorance.

William Engdahl retraces the evolution of empire over the last century and its transition from a British Empire to the American Empire. His most interesting contribution to the history of this transition is his account of the end of the Bretton Woods Agreement in 1971 by Richard Nixon and the Federal Reserve and linking this with the Arab Oil Embargo and an obscure conference in 1973 in Saltsjobaden, Sweden involving the "Bilderberg Group." Mr. Engdahl's account of how the dollar became the "petrodollar" - the global currency for oil- is very informative and convincing. Not as convincing is the implication that the world is run by a cabal of international bankers revolving around the Rockefellers. No doubt bankers, international and otherwise, wield far too great an influence over our economic affairs. But I'm not convinced and I'm not sure even Mr. Engdahl believes in a global conspiracy controlling money and oil. The book conveys that impression which I think is it's greatest flaw.

But the author does convincing describe an important connection between money and oil which explains a lot of what has happened to our world since 1971. For that reason, I think this book deserves to be read.

One of the best books on the topic. I have verified many of the critical statements from independant sources as well as my past 30 years of interest and experience with English foreign policy of "looting" other nations , a fact not a conspiracy theory, which unfortunately was subscribed to by America after WWII with disasterous results for the exploited nations, such as Iraq (for oil) and Afghanestan (for Al Queida but more importantly for future pipe line from central Asia to Indian Ocean) - as recent examples. And, with QUESTIONALBE gain by our own nation, except perhaps for the top 1%. ISN'T THERE A BETTER WAY?
