Economic Hit Men, Jackals, and the Truth about Global Corruption
Formerly an "economic hit man" in service to the "American Empire," the author of the controversial memoir Confessions of an Economic Hit Man returns with a second exposé, more detailed than the first. In his new book, The Secret History of the American Empire: Economic Hit Men, Jackals, and the Truth about Global Corruption, John Perkins narrows his analysis of current geopolitical challenges, drawing on interviews with other "hit men" and former colleagues. While furthering his daring attack on America's role in the world today, Perkins offers creative solutions to global issues in order to create a more stable, sustainable, and peaceful global community.
