A ton of names and events get thrown at you (a full third of the book about Nixon and Watergate) in order to prove a point about Fritz Kramer and the neocon agenda. The same point could have been made with less detail and more analysis.
Outstanding books. Almost reads like a conspiracy theory book in the way it links together events in history that you didn't not know were linked. Authors are legit though and the subject matter is pretty important for understanding our current political climate.
Very good and detailed examination of the past forty years of the neocons and the abuse of power that occurred during most every administration starting.
Interesting history of the Neo-Con movement in foreign policy.
This book is well written and tremendously informative.
