F. William Engdahl: Full Spectrum Dominance

Totalitarian Democracy in the New World Order

edition.engdahl, 2009     Amazon.com

Book Description:

For the faction that controls the Pentagon, the military industry and the oil industry, the Cold War never ended. It went on ‘below the radar’ creating a global network of bases and conflicts to advance their long-term goal of Full Spectrum Dominance, the total control of the planet: land, sea, air, space, outer space and cyberspace. Their methods included control of propaganda, use of NGOs for regime change, Color Revolutions to advance NATO east, and a vast array of psychological and economic warfare techniques, a Revolution in Military Affairs as they termed it. The events of September 11, 2001 would allow an American President to declare a war on an enemy who was everywhere and nowhere, who justified a Patriot Act that destroyed that very freedom in the name of the new worldwide War on Terror. This book gives a disturbing look at that strategy of Full Spectrum Dominance.
About the Author:
F. William Engdahl is author of the international best-selling book on oil and geopolitics, A Century of War: Anglo-American Politics and the New World Order. He is a widely discussed analyst of current political and economic developments whose articles have appeared in numerous newspapers and magazines and well-known international websites. His book, Seeds of Destruction: The Hidden Agenda Behind Genetic Manipulation, deals with agribusiness and the attempt to control world food supply and thereby populations.

JOB’s Comment:
Some of Engdahl’s theories seem too speculative, in some cases he appears to be wrong. But there is clearly much essential truth in the overall picture he presents. For the concept of the “New World Order”, see my post (in Swedish) ‘Begreppet den nya världsordningen’.

    Om JOB mot förmodan inte är bekant med François Perroux och Susan Strange, varav den senare delvis utvecklat Perroux syn på asymmetriska maktrelationer (ekonomiskt, militärt, etc.), så kan jag passa på att tipsa om dessa två namn.

      Tack, jag är inte närmare förtrogen med deras arbete, de är inte mycket mer än namn för mig. Jag får titta närmare på dem.
