A revolutionary to the point of life-changing book
on 7 May 2009
Although I have read a few histories of the United States this one had the scales falling from my eyes and smashing to smithereens on almost every page.
Never have I read an historical account that exposes the self-serving, elitist and hypocritical actions of government in such a brutal and frank way. That it happens to be about the USA is almost irrelevant given that most countries are guilty of the same hypocrisies and double standards that the US has been - certainly the UK has over its long history.
A book that leaves you shocked and angry about past and present deeds and embarrassed about the status quo.
It is a 'must read' book - even for non-Americans.
