Save These Books from the Shredder

By Robert Parry
February 27, 2011 (Updated March 4, 2011)

Our next cost-cutting move will be to give up the $195-a-month warehouse space for storing our books – and to move what we can into my basement. But there is no space for about 20 boxes of Neck Deep: The Disastrous Presidency of George W. Bush.

That means we must dispose of these books – and I’m asking your help so the books don’t have to be destroyed. I’d much prefer that these wonderful books get distributed to the public even if at a very steep loss.

So, we are offering an entire box of 28 paperback copies of Neck Deep for only $59, postage included for U.S. orders. That means for the cost of less than three books, you will get 25 books free. (Or you can request that we substitute a box of 24 hardcover copies.)

You can then resell the books, or give them away as gifts, or contribute them to your local library’s book sale. Our overriding goal is to make the books available to readers who can benefit from the valuable investigative journalism that fills Neck Deep.

Neck Deep tells the remarkable story of how the Bush Family reclaimed the highest office in the 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 George W. Bush the White House.

Neck Deep then explains how Bush abused the extraordinary powers that he had wrongfully seized. It is a crucial narrative that Americans must understand if such a catastrophe is not to be repeated.

And, on a personal level, please spare me the pain of having to destroy these books that I wrote with two of my sons, Sam and Nat.

You can get your box of 28 paperback copies of Neck Deep by following one of these easy methods:

--By credit card (Mastercard/Visa) by going to's donation site and putting in a $59 charge. (You can follow up with an e-mail to to give us your mailing address, or if that address and the billing address for the credit card are the same, we’ll automatically assume that any $59 “donation” is intended for a box of 28 paperback copies of Neck Deep and ship it there.)

(If you prefer, the box of 24 hardcover copies also tell us by e-mail.)

Other payment methods:

--By check for $59 made out to Consortium for Independent Journalism (CIJ); Suite 102-231; 2200 Wilson Blvd.; Arlington, VA 22201.

--By PayPal, make a payment to our account which is named after our e-mail address: “” (Please include your mailing address in the PayPal message.)

(For any non-U.S. orders, we will have to first get an estimate of what the additional shipping costs would be. So, please contact us before placing a non-U.S. order.)

Thanks for your help.

Robert Parry broke many of the Iran-Contra stories in the 1980s for the Associated Press and Newsweek. He founded 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.
