From Editor Robert Parry: Summer reading – often called “beach reading” – is usually light fare, from romance novels to some classy fiction. But we’re offering something a little different, a rewrite of recent American history.
And we’re offering it at a deep discount, my last three books for only $34, or less than half price. And, for U.S. orders, shipping is free.
The trilogy traces the history of the two Bush presidencies and their disastrous impact on the world. The three books – Secrecy & Privilege, Neck Deep (co-authored with Sam and Nat Parry) and America’s Stolen Narrative – would normally cost more than $70. And $4 from each $34 purchase will go to support the journalism you read at Consortiumnews.com.
The newest book, America’s Stolen Narrative, also sheds new light on some old mysteries: Did Richard Nixon sabotage Lyndon Johnson’s Vietnam peace talks to win the 1968 presidential election — and did Ronald Reagan follow a similar script in sinking Jimmy Carter’s Iran hostage negotiations to secure the 1980 election.
To take advantage of this offer, just go to the Web site’s “Donate” button and make a $34 “donation” using Visa, Mastercard or Discover. We will read a donation of that amount as an order for the trilogy.
If your mailing address is the same as your credit card billing address, we will ship the books to that address. If your mailing address is different, just send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make the adjustment. For U.S. orders, we will pay for the shipping. [Regrettably, increased postage rates and stricter postal regulations make it impossible for us to make this three-book offer outside the U.S.]
You can also take advantage of this special offer by mailing a check for $34 to The Media Consortium; 2200 Wilson Blvd.; Suite 102-231; Arlington VA 22201. Or you can use our Paypal account, “consortnew @ aol.com.” Just make sure you include your mailing address in the message.
Robert Parry is a longtime investigative reporter who broke many of the Iran-Contra stories for the Associated Press and Newsweek in the 1980s.
