Poor pitiful Carroll and his liberal world order.

The upside down American flag on the front cover pretty much sums up Quigley's thesis. Unfortunately this warning never reached mainstream America as the book remained unpublished for 30 plus years. Coincidence?

A brilliant piece of research. This book details the mechanisms by which a small number of men managed to gain control of immense power.

The book shows that there had been existing power groups in Great Britain wielded by small groups who used close associations, friendships and intermarriage to consolidate their power, but that this type of power structure was intensified in the early 19th century, initially around Cecil Rhodes and Lord Milner.

These men were motivated by what they saw as moral

I am left confused by this book. This is in a large part also due to the author Quigley who clearly states his position and bias but dose a very good job on presenting the members, ideology and actions/influence of the Groups in a non hypocritical way.
My confusion is also on the nature of the Groups (there were more than one) witch were not quite secret societies despite their clear discreetness and they were on an individual level good people with good intentions who can not be quite accused of

An amazing history of a small secretive group that placed themselves in various positions of authority to create a network of power and influence. The Group was able to manipulate world events in their favor for the most part, trying to create a world state where they would hold the keys to the future of mankind. The group still exists to this day though undoubtedly is much more ruthless than the Milner Group which Quigley writes about.
Strong Extraordinary Dreams
Starts as a C19 and C20 roll-call and personal history of the titans of modern political history, which is strangely fascinating in a soap-opera, Donton Abbey sort of way.

Ends as a back grounder to World War II, which turned my head around more that any other 50 pages I have ever read.

The practicability of this book is not imminent. I read it as if it was a bed-time story.

But knowledge revealed in this book shall be of significance, since they underscore certain crucial aspects of the history of a hidden association that had casted great influence on British national politics prior to WWII and carried out the will of Cecil Rhodes, wealthy empire-builder and the most important person in South Africa.

This association or society was founded by Cecil Rhodes in 1890. From 1891

C Quigley, Professor of history at Princeton and Georgetown, mentor to former President Clinton and one of the biggest names in American academics, the guys got credentials. He also was allowed to see behind the curtain at who really held the power to control the fate of nations, rewrite modern history and what their agenda is. A MUST READ!
