Mr. Perkins has written a chronology of his working life and a detailed description of the sinister policies of companies and governments that have international and personal effects on all of us.
Essentially, Mr. Perkins was recruited into, what President Eisenhower called the "Military Industrial Complex". Mr. Perkins has renamed it the "corporatocracy". Both terms are appropriate because the companies change, the governments remain corruptable, banks become wealthier and the Empire marches on.
In the end all good (and evil) things must end and Mr. Perkins comes to this conclusion with this book. Calling the system(s) "ultimately self-destructive", Mr. Perkins, I feel, is correct. Although, the companies, governments and banks who are intimately involved with their manipulations, would violently argue the contrary.
The story of Mr. Perkins reminds me of the movie "The Adventurers" written in book form by Harold Robins and produced in movie form in the 1960's.
Basically, an excellent book that delivers insights that you have had in the past, which Mr. 'Juanito' Perkins puts into word that could very possibly change your view of the world and your own government.
