This book is extraordinarily interesting, broad, and paradigm-altering.
The table of contents provided enough detail to be an executive summary. The book is somewhat deficient on sources (heavily reliant on superficial "encyclopedic" references) but the alternative explanation of history and reality is not to be missed.
I bought the book thinking it was about government secrecy. Not so. Much more importantly, this book is about the secret societies used by the 300-500 wealthiest individuals in the world, the ones that own the central banks that can cause financial panics, move inflation or deflation, all to the end of profiting, while "exploding the client," the individual "patsy" whose hard-earned wages are nothing more than a supermarket shelf from which these elites pluck extra funds to buy another castle. See my review of Mark Lewis's "Liar's Poker" to understand Wall Street use of individuals as *disposable* sources of cash, and my review of John Perkin's "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man" to get a sense of the larger global methods being used to loot the commonwealths. Also relevant is Jeff Faux, "The Global Class War : How America's Bipartisan Elite Lost Our Future - and What It Will Take to Win it Back" and many of my other reviews of books by others on the loss of government legitimacy and credibility with the people, combined with the predatory immorality of corporations that now own government.
Much of what the author attributes to a grand master plan can also be explained by the natural tendency of wealth to create wealth (compound interest) and for wealth to influence politics, but this book is deeper than that.
The author begins with an introduction of the Rothchilds, and gradually builds up a detailed picture of how they funded "barons" around the world, and in America, where the Morgans and the Rockefellers were their chosen instruments. The Bush family is second tier but right up there. Special attention is given to the Federal Reserve, which is NOT controlled by the government and has NEVER been audited in its history, and to the ease with which bankers make money from advance knowledge of changes in domestic and foreign policies that they often simply mandate.
The USA was until around 1837 a "value-based" economy in which real assets--gold, silver, land, labor--paid in full. There was no debt, no interest. From Thomas Jefferson to Andrew Jackson, bankers from Europe were rejected and considered "more dangerous than armies, swindling the future." Jefferson also believed central banks to be unconstitutional, since the right to create a national currency is reserved to the U.S. Treasury. The author notes that both Lincoln and Kennedy were unique for issuing debt-free currency, and for being assassinated. Reagan was shot by Hinkley, whose relative was dining with a prominent member of the Bush family the night before, and he suggests this was intended to move Bush, a member of the secret society world and leading pawn, into power years sooner.
An extensive discussion is provided of bankers themselves causing financial panics, wars, and other confrontations. The author refers to the Rothschild Formula as being to spawn wars and finance both sides. The book discusses the bank-rolling of Hitler, Trotsky, the US Civil War, the French Revolution, the Boar War, and on and on.
Credible evidence is provided that the terrorism in Italy, as part of a "Strategy of Tension" described in a captured document, was intended to create enough of a perception of leftist terrorism to justify a shift in the government toward fascism. The P2 Lodge behind the terrorism was a secret society on the right, not the left, and is said to have been guided by the Alpine Lodge in Switzerland, the "Gnomes of Zurich." George Bush senior is alleged to have been an honorary member of this lodge, while Henry Kissinger is said later in the book to be a member of the Alpine Lodge. Most interesting for me is the CIA connection. The "Strategy of Tension" was first devised by James Angleton to prevent a communist take-over in Italy following WWII, and is STRICKINGLY apt in considering the allegations that 9/11 was allowed to happen if not made to happen. See my review of "Crossing the Rubicon," of "9/11: Synthetic Terror Made in the USA," among other books (use my lists).
Summing up this book early on, I found it to be 1/3 wealth begets wealth; 1/3 corruption begets wealth, and 1/3 conspiracy begets wealth. However, once I entered the secret society segment of the book, I reverse the above order.
This book gave me a completely new perspective on Cheney and Rove as front men rather than the prime movers, intended to take the heat and be "sacrificed" without the public every realizing that it is Citi-Bank (the same bank said to have secretly received Yamashita's Gold from Douglas McArthur, as told in "Gold Warriors" by Sterling and Peggy Seagrave), and Chase Manhattan, the two owned sufficiently by the Morgan and Rockefeller families to be the hubs for their power. The author also discusses the 40,000 tax exempt organizations that serve as fronts for banks and foundations and corporations, all manipulating the individual citizen-voter without paying a cent in taxes.
On page 408 the author says "Whatever the truth may be, we must be wary of leaders who attempt--whether by force, manipulation, or deceit--to move whole populations in directions they may not wish to go and might not be beneficial to all."
On page 409 the author says "Knowledge is indeed power. It is time for those who desire true freedom to exert themselves--to fight back against the forces who desire domination through fear and disunity [enabled by secrecy." The author notes that there are more of us than of them (see my review of Jonathan Schell's "Unconquerable World.")
I have one word for what I plan to work toward: TRANSPARENCY. Collective public intelligence is going to survive and prosper. The times, they are a'changing.

In researching my own web book, Outrageous Truth: A Mystical Paradigm, I have read and studied thousands of manuscripts of books, journals, research reports, newspaper accounts, newsletters, articles, and web pages. There have only been two books that have impressed me to the extent as this one, both of which are metaphysical, The Secret Doctrine, by H.P. Blavatsky, and The Secret Wisdom of All Ages, by Manley P. Hall. They share in common a quality that I can only label "Inspired."
By "Inspired," I do not mean the definition that is overused to describe creative novelty, excitement and intensity. By "Inspired" I mean other worldly, that the writer had to have been informed from sources well beyond the material elements and limits of this earth and the human intellect. The indications of this special status include: awesome meticulous and exhausting detail, consistent and extensive cross references to other valid and credible works, the impression that he has remembered every detail of everything he has ever read or contacted. There is an impeccable logic of the story line's themes and contextual development. There is consistent validation among the book's information with credible links to widely documented real world events and sources descriptive of them. The esoteric elements of his book are firmly connected to ancient evidence whose validity is confirmed by multiple credible sources. These qualities well transcend the limited capacities of even pure genius
This book transcends the politics of any party or religion. The author begins with an accounting of those secret societies that operate today, and who the public figures are that, unknown to the general public, are linked to them. He then develops the antecedents of these societies and links them to world figures and events, Hitler, the Nazis, the wars of the 19th and 20th century, and the corporate holders of economic and political control of all sides of conflict who manipulate world events. The chilling links behind why and who orchestrated the Kennedy assassinations become stunningly clear. He identifies the foundation Principles that created their modern expressions from their earlier forms: the Alchemists, Freemasons, Rosicrucian's, and the Illuminati. He then traces the origins of these earlier secret societies back to the most ancient human societies and cultures, and their first written documents, particularly in Egypt, the Middle east, and especially Samaria. He shows how these links from the dawn of human consciousness have evolved to their current expressions today.
Major insight is provided regarding the placement of Christianity in world events and the activities that nurtured its growth and contributions to world events. Some of this information will shock many of today's Christian believers. I find that this information is consistent with other credible sources that address that topic. Across the ages, Marrs links every historical figure of prominence to their role in the evolution of secret power and control to their contemporary secret manifestations today, e.g., the Skull and Bones Society (Yale University), The Trilateral Commission, and CFR (Council on Foreign Relations,) and the German society, the Bilderburgers, and the Priory of Sion.
Few persons today can imagine the mystical connections of these worldly groups to their guiding principles that extend back before the pyramids. But from this book you will learn how and why the persons behind these groups arranged to profit from both sides of the Civil War, World Wars I and II, Korea, Vietnam, and how they now instigate to promote world wide violence to create a single world order controlled entirely by them. In pursuit of this goal they are completely ruthless and unprincipled. They cultivate and use support from any source that will help them achieve their goals, including the naive support of gullible religionists. You can come to recognize their skill at creating "plausible deniability" which are the watchwords that protect their identity and roles behind the success of all their actions when taken.
Here is a passage from the Introduction to Marr's book:
"Be forewarned. If you are perfectly comfortable and satisfied with you own particular view of humankind, religion, history, and the world, read no further.
If you truly believe that humanity has reached the peak of its scientific and spiritual fulfillment, and the corporate owned mass media is keeping you well enough informed, stop here.
But if you are one of those millions who look at the daily news, scratch you head in wonder, and ask, "What in the world is going on?" or if you entertain questions of who we are, where we came from, and where we're going, you are in for a joy ride."
"Joy ride" or not, the book is a demanding read. The fire hose torrent of information, of names alone, can be daunting even to an experienced reader conversant with many of the names and events of today and recent history going back to the 19th and 18th Centuries. I encourage you to simply skim over those parts of the book that cause you to glaze over. There are rewards for getting any part of this book that is accessible to you, and that will be most of it. That is why the rewards for reading it will be unsurpassed. For example, the election struggles leading to November this year, and in 2008, will be understood from an incredible fresh perspective that you cannot now imagine.
This book is such a stunning indictment of current politics and American social values, it is a wonder that Marrs has not already been murdered by the same corporate power structure that is largely in control of all of today's major social decisions. I believe that Marrs is alive because the power elite who own this country quake in their boots and fear that any such drastic act on their part will cause the book to become more widely visible. Because while it was published by HarperCollins, it was never seriously marketed. But in spite of being panned by other corporate controlled editorial reviews, it became a quiet best seller nevertheless. Should the book become publicly visible by an act of violence so as to make Marrs a martyr, then it would become sensational, then widely read by many audiences, and finally, acted upon. They must desperately hope and expect that this book and Jim Marrs will quietly fade away without any major social or political impact. I hope you will help to not let that happen. I have begun to read this amazing book a second time, and I will continue to study it and selected references in it that I am not already familiar with. I find, as they say, it's easier the second time around.
