The secret history of the American empire : economic hit men, jackals, and the truth about global corruption by John Perkins( Book )

34 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perkins, author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, zeroes in on hot spots around the world and, drawing on interviews with other hit men, jackals (CIA operatives), reporters, and activists, examines the current geopolitical crisis. Instability is the norm: It's clear that the world we've created is dangerous and no longer sustainable. How did we get here? Who's responsible? What good have we done and at what cost? And what can we do to change things for the next generations? Perkins reveals the secret history behind the events that have created the American Empire, including: the current Latin American revolution and its lessons for democracy; how the "defeats" in Vietnam and Iraq benefited big business; the role of Israel as "Fortress America" in the Middle East; tragic repercussions of the IMF's "Asian Economic Collapse"; U.S. blunders in Tibet, Congo, Lebanon, and Venezuela; jackal forays to assassinate democratic presidents. Alarming yet hopeful, this book provides a compassionate plan to reimagine our world.--From publisher description
Hoodwinked : an economic hit man reveals why the world financial markets imploded--and what we need to do to remake them by John Perkins( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 649 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Perkins has seen economic meltdowns before--the banking industry collapse, the rising tide of unemployment, the shuttering of businesses are all too familiar symptoms of a far greater disease. As an economic hit man, he was involved in events once confined to the Third World, that have now sent the United States--and in fact the entire planet--spiraling toward disaster. Here, Perkins shows how we've been hoodwinked by the CEOs who run those few corporations that control the capital, land, and resources--and the politicians they manipulate. These corporate fat cats have sold us all on what he calls predatory capitalism, an exploitation of the many to benefit the already very wealthy. Their arrogance, gluttony, and mismanagement have brought us to the edge. But there is a way out. As Perkins makes clear, we can create a healthy economy that will encourage businesses to act responsibly, in the interests of their employees, their customers, the environment, and society at large.--From publisher description
Confessions of an economic hit man by John Perkins( )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the inside story of how America turned from a respected republic into a feared empire. Economic hit men," John Perkins writes, "are highly paid professionals who cheat countries around the globe out of trillions of dollars. Their tools include fraudulent financial reports, rigged elections, payoffs, extortion, sex, and murder." John Perkins should know--he was an economic hit man. His job was to convince countries that are strategically important to the U.S.--from Indonesia to Panama--to accept enormous loans for infrastructure development and to make sure that the lucrative projects were contracted to Halliburton, Bechtel, Brown and Root, and other United States engineering and construction companies. Saddled with huge debts, these countries came under the control of the United States government, World Bank, and other U.S.-dominated aid agencies that acted like loan sharks--dictating repayment terms and bullying foreign governments into submission" -- from publisher's web site

Shapeshifting : shamanic techniques for global and personal transformation by John Perkins( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many indigenous cultures practice shapeshifting. Native American hunters take on the spirit of their prey to ensure a successful hunt; Asian medicine men "ingest" a sickness to heal the one afflicted; Amazon warriors become jaguars to soundlessly travel the jungle. Those who shapeshift understand that all of life is energy and that by focusing your intent you can change energetic patterns, rendering a new form. Shapeshifting can occur on three levels: cellular--transforming from human to plant or animal; personal--becoming a new self or leaving an addiction behind; and institutional--creating a new business or cultural identity. Since 1968, master shamans in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and the Americas have been training John Perkins to teach the industrial world about the powerful techniques involved in shapeshifting. His groundbreaking book takes you to deserts and jungles, mountains and oceans, medical research centers and corporate board rooms to learn the step-by-step methods of this practice that integrates ancient and modern techniques to bring about profound healing
