THE SECRET HISTORY OF THE AMERICAN EMPIRE Economic Hit Men, Jackals, and the Truth About Corporate Corruption

by | Read by Jonathan Davis

Contemporary Culture • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

In this follow-up to CONFESSIONS OF AN ECONOMIC HIT MAN, John Perkins continues his exposé of corrupt governmental and business economic policies and practices. He focuses primarily on the United States, but he also has much to say about the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. The passion the author feels for his subject can be heard in the introduction, which he reads himself. Jonathan Davis projects the same intensity and sense of urgency in his precise and crisp presentation of the rest of the text. What could be a plodding and convoluted economic treatise is made compelling by the author's insider knowledge and personal anecdotes, which are enhanced by Davis's clear, fast-paced delivery.
