From Robert Parry: As part of our “empty the warehouse” drive, we are re-offering, for a limited time, the three-book set – Lost History, Secrecy & Privilege and Neck Deep – at a deep discount of only $29 for all three.
We also will continue to offer full cartons of Secrecy & Privilege and Neck Deep – 28 books to a carton – for only $59. We have to reduce our book stockpile by about 20 more cartons so we can close out our warehouse space and move the remainder into a corner of my house.
(For both offers, I’ll pay the shipping and handling for all U.S. orders.)
What I really don’t want to do is throw out any of these books. Too much hard work went into them.
Here’s how you can help us avoid that:
–Go to the Consortiumnews.com’s donation site and put in a $29 charge (for the three-book set) or a $59 charge (for a full carton) on your Visa or Mastercard. Follow up with an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to give us your mailing address and your book selection.
For the full-carton offer, you have a choice of a half-and-half split of Secrecy & Privilege and Neck Deep (14 each in paperback). Or a full carton of either book, 28 in paperback. Or a full carton of 24 hardback copies of Neck Deep.
–You can also order with a check made out to The Media Consortium; Suite 102-231; 2200 Wilson Blvd.; Arlington, VA 22201.
–Or by PayPal by making a payment to our account which is named after our e-mail address: “email@example.com” (Please include your book choice and mailing address in the PayPal message.)
We can do non-U.S. orders for the three-book set if you add $10 to your payment. (Sadly, the cost of overseas shipments of full cartons is prohibitive.)
The three books include some of most important work we have done at Consortiumnews.com over the past decade and a half.
–Lost History by Robert Parry recounts how the U.S. political process was led astray, in part, by the failure to face up to the darker chapters of America’s recent history. Even well-documented parts of that history, such as evidence of Nicaraguan Contra drug trafficking, were marginalized during Ronald Reagan’s feel-good presidency.
–Secrecy & Privilege by Robert Parry explains how George H.W. Bush rose to power through his service to Richard Nixon during the Watergate scandal; describes Bush’s bloody year as chief of the CIA; exposes his secret effort to undermine President Jimmy Carter’s Iran-hostage talks in 1980; and tracks Bush’s role in other national security scandals, such as Iran-Contra and Iraqgate.
–Neck Deep by Robert, Sam and Nat Parry takes this remarkable story of the Bush Family’s rise forward to George W. Bush seizing the highest office in land with the help of the Right’s powerful propaganda machinery, the systemic failure of the mainstream U.S. news media, and the coup d’etat of Republican political cronies on the U.S. Supreme Court handing Bush the White House.
Besides helping us save on our warehouse costs, a portion of each book purchase will go keep the Consortiumnews.com Web site alive.
Thanks so much for your help.
Robert Parry broke many of the Iran-Contra stories in the 1980s for the Associated Press and Newsweek. He founded Consortiumnews.com in 1995 as the Internet’s first investigative magazine. He saw it as a way to combine modern technology and old-fashioned journalism to counter the increasing triviality of the mainstream U.S. news media.
