In The Bush Agenda, policy-analyst, author, and activist, Antonia Juhasz exposes the Bush Administration’s use of corporate globalization policy as a weapon of war in Iraq, the Middle East – through the U.S.-Middle East Free Trade Area, and across the world as it builds a Pax Americana. Tracing twenty-five years of corporate globalization policy, it reveals the history and key role of U.S. corporations in the creation of the Bush Agenda, focusing on Bechtel, Lockheed Martin, Chevron, and Halliburton. It concludes with specific achievable alternatives for a more peaceful and sustainable course.
"...in this excellent book [Juhasz] breaks down complex issues, exposes back room deals, and gives readers the information they need to speak truth to power." – Amy Goodman, host of Democracy Now!
“…essential reading.” – Congressman John Conyers, Jr.
“…a resounding call to action.” – John Perkins, author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
