French philosopher Jean Paul Sartre said that "words are loaded pistols". In the hands of Russ Baker, they are hydrogen bombs. On each and every page of his masterpiece, Family of Secrets, he explodes the myths and lies that powerful forces have perpetrated on the American consciousness. He digs beneath the surface in a form of journalistic archeology to reveal the hidden history of one of America's most powerful families, leaving no stone unturned.

Another resource to learn more about the Powers-that-be. This book goes into perhaps too much detail from an entertainment point of view, but for good reason, I think. The Bush clan has gone to great lengths to conceal its activities and the motives behind them. Thoroughly researched and well documented, we now have another resource for unmasking the demons behind money and power in the US.
