5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book!, 25 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Carroll Quigley was a distinguished professor of history at the Foreign Service School of Georgetown University, who also taught at Princeton and Harvard. His book The Anglo-American Establishment tells the true and fascinating story of a well-documented conspiracy by powerful financial and industrial interests to use their immense resources to literally take over the world.

The British side of the conspiracy revolved around the Milner Group consisting of upstarts like Lord Milner operating in close collaboration with members of the aristocracy, bankers and industrialists with links to South African mining and the City of London (the capital's financial centre). Their partners on the US side were the Eastern Establishment, a group of banking and industrial interests like J P Morgan & Co, with close links to New York's Wall Street and associated East Coast interests.

The above interests' agenda is exposed in great detail as the true moving force behind the conception of international organizations like the British Commonwealth, the League of Nations and a worldwide network of affiliated bodies like the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA) a.k.a. Chatham House, its sister organization the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the Institute of Pacific Relations (IPR) and many others working for the same overarching aim.

Though written in 1949, the book remains an important reference work, being cited in academic publications like I Parmar's Think Tanks and Power in Foreign Policy (2004) and should be taken as a starting point for any serious study of the topic. For a more up-to-date account I would also recommend The Milner-Fabian Conspiracy by Ioan Ratiu.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 2 Sep 2004
By A Customer
This book is a must for anyone who is interested in the secret mechanism of power. It shows clearly the netowrk of organisation that one must go through to reach positions of power, and how these people are just pawns for a core of a few people.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hardcore, 30 Oct 2009
By 
This is for hardcore conspiracists. It is an extremely detailed account of a British secret society which is/was the driving source for globalisation. Quigley is possibly the most important and certainly the most distinguished conspiracy theorist in history.
