From Robert Parry: As part of our effort to clear out warehouse space and distribute the valuable journalism we have done over the years, we are offering the three-book set – Lost History, Secrecy & Privilege and Neck Deep – at the deep discount price of only $29 for all three, postage included.
We also are continuing to offer full cartons of Secrecy & Privilege and Neck Deep – 28 books to a carton – for only $59, also with free postage.
To get these discounts all you need to do is:
–Go to the Consortiumnews.com’s donation site and put in a $29 “donation” (for the three-book set) or a $59 “donation” (for a full carton) on your Visa or Mastercard. Follow up with an e-mail to email@example.com to give us your mailing address and your book selection.
With 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: “firstname.lastname@example.org” (Please include your book choice and mailing address in the PayPal message.)
(For non-U.S. orders on the three-book set, please add $10 for the additional postage. 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 16 years.
–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 close out our warehouse space, a portion of each book purchase will go to 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.
