Praise

“The perfect book for paranoiacs, conspiracy buffs, fans of Michael Moore, and just anyone who thinks the people running the world don’t have our best interests at heart. Rossi… sets out to expose the lurkers in the shadows of government who are pulling the strings worldwide. Political advisors, influential corporations, media moguls, retail empires, government agencies—the list is both long and unsettling. Rossi’s premise is simple: there are people and organizations running the world from behind the scenes of government and commerce, and us ordinary folks would be wise to know who they are. Rossi doesn’t pull any punches… she marshals plenty of impressive source material.”—David Pitt, Booklist
