Holiday Books for Only $2 Apiece

If you have history buffs on your holiday shopping list, you can get them something they’ll enjoy for a super-bargain price: either Robert Parry’s Secrecy & Privilege or Neck Deep or a mix of the two books for only $56 for a carton of 28 or just $2 apiece.

The books based on Parry’s ground-breaking journalism on national security issues and modern politics offer a deep understanding of what happened to the American system over the past four decades. They should be in the library of every person who cares about modern American history.

Secrecy & Privilege follows the rise of the Bush dynasty from the days of Richard Nixon’s Watergate scandal through the Bush Family’s initial claim to the White House. Neck Deep, co-authored with Sam and Nat Parry, follows this remarkable tale through the Bush Family’s restoration last decade.

The books will be available at this deep discount only for a limited time (as we clear out warehouse space). But you can get them now and cross some names off your holiday shopping list through this easy method.

More about the two books:

–In Secrecy & Privilege, Robert Parry, the journalist who broke many of the Iran-Contra stories for the Associated Press and Newsweek, explains how George H.W. Bush rose to prominence 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 the Iran-Contra Affair 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 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 Bush the White House.
