    This is an excellent book on the involvement of the Nixon White House and Harold Geneen in the involvement of the 1973 coup that toppled the Marxist regime of Salvador Allende in Chile. Sampson was a journalist working only with documents of public record so an updated book is needed. Sampson's allegations were widely believed at the time and no one has ever tried very hard to deny them.

Sampson's allegations were widely believed at the time and no one has ever tried very hard to deny them. Judging from the recent books that I have read by the supporters of Nixon and Kissinger, the approach that has been adopted has been to simply ignore the allegations and allow them to be slowly forgotten.

    A powerful indictment of big business' and politicians' collusion with the Nazis while Allied soldiers and airmen died by the hundreds of thousands, all to save their capital and financial assets in occupied Europe in WW2. It makes Robert Ludlum's early novels look not so paranoid. A recent example: http://news.nationalpost.com/2013/08/...

    Good! Everybody should read it. "It is tempting for any critic to depict multinational corporations as planned conspiracies, plotting to rebuild the world in their image, and there are parts of the ITT history that give credibility to this view—from Sosthenes Behn's secret bargains with the dictators to the memos of Dita Beard and Hal Hendrix, and Geneen's campaign to defeat the antitrust laws. Yet even in ITT's case the conspiratorial view cannot, I believe, be maintained: throughout its history Good! Everybody should read it.

Yet even in ITT's case the conspiratorial view cannot, I believe, be maintained: throughout its history ITT has been precariously balancing on tightropes, protecting its assets, and covering its risks; and its plots and campaigns have stemmed more from its continual sense of insecurity than from a grand master plan—an insecurity that helps to account for some of its crassest mistakes."
