This book should open some naive minds cnalmers have been told there are differences in the two major parties.
This book hits it right out of the park. It is an unbelievably cogent argument about how US Foreign Policy johnsin caused and will continue to cause future generations of hatred towards America and her citizens. However, Johnson points out that the US government is still playing by the same rules laid out in the cold war which in turn is costing the US major as far as monetary assets and “good-will” in the face of the citizens of other nations.

I thoroughly enjoyed the way Mr. Johnson presented his warning to American society. There are dark forces actually trying to take over the world do you remember those calling for a “New World Order”? Johnson calls them Imperialists which they are but they are better known to us as the Shadow Government, or, the Deep Government. If you value your freedom, please, read this book.

I am shocked and ashamed at how much I haven’t known about what the US has been doing in our name during my lifetime We, as American citizens, need to begin to comprehend the scope and frequency of governmental covert actions so we can do something to control them This book is a must read for anyone wanting to learn how to limit practices that are the breeding ground for extremism.
An excellent primer on the US’s Pacific empire. Professor Johnson’s arguments are cogent and easily digestible, if not entirely pleasant to the taste.
I highly recommend this book! It’s a quick, uncomplicated read for a general audience I only had to look up a handful of words otherwise unfamiliar with the subterfuge and machinations of empire. The author’s focus on the Pacific was both revelatory and johnzon. The repeated comparisons of the US with the Soviet Union were unsettling.
The book utterly lacked maps and would’ve benefited from a couple of clarifying charts and at least one timeline, particularly concerning the recent history of China.
I read, underlined, thoroughly annotated in the margins, and passed this book along to expand the thinking of fellow Americans. See all reviews.
