Split Cartons Great for Book Clubs

Some readers have told us that our 50/50 split cartons of Secrecy & Privilege and Neck Deep are great for book clubs, with 14 copies of each book costing only $59 for the entire box (postage included for U.S. orders), or just over $2 per book. At that discount price, the full boxes of books (28 paperbacks in all) make sense, too, for re-sale, for your own fundraiser or as gifts.

And by ordering a box, you can help us whittle down our stockpile of books so we can close out our warehouse space and save nearly $200 each month.

If a full box doesn’t make sense for you, we also are continuing our special offer of the two-book set Secrecy & Privilege and Neck Deep both for only $19, again with postage included for U.S. orders. (Add $10 for non-U.S. orders for the two books.)

You can place your order:

–By credit card (Mastercard/Visa) by going to the Consortiumnews.com’s donation site and putting in a $59 charge (for the full box) or $19 (for the two-book order).

Please follow up with an e-mail to [email protected] to give us your mailing address. Otherwise, we’ll assume your billing and mailing address are the same.

Also, if you don’t want the 50/50 split on the full carton of books, you can ask us to substitute either a full box of 28 copies of either Secrecy & Privilege or Neck Deep in paperback, or a box of 24 hard-cover copies of Neck Deep.

–By check made out to The Media Consortium; 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: “[email protected]” (Please include your mailing address in the PayPal message.)

The two books — Secrecy & Privilege and Neck Deep — contain important history about the recent era. For instance,

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; and exposes his secret effort to undermine President Jimmy Carter’s Iran-hostage talks in 1980.

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 and Republican political cronies on the U.S. Supreme Court.

These solidly reported histories should be part of every library. You can help by getting a set for yourself, a friend or a public or school library or your book club.

Thanks for your help.
