Strange Liberators: Militarism, Mayhem, and the Pursuit of Profit

by Gregory Elich Sunday, Aug. 27, 2006 at 2:28 AM

U.S. foreign policy as seen by those on the receiving end.

Newly published by Llumina Press:


Militarism, Mayhem, and the Pursuit of Profit

By Gregory Elich

With an introduction by Michael Parenti and an afterword by Mickey Z.

From war and sanctions to corporate plunder and the looming threat of

climate change, the harrowing accounts in Gregory Elich’s Strange

Liberators comprise an essential source for understanding today’s

world. This is U.S. foreign policy as seen by those on the receiving


“Gregory Elich is the model investigative journalist of the anti-imperialist

left; tenacious, thorough, penetrating, meticulous and above all,

uncompromising. On Yugoslavia, North Korea, Zimbabwe, and Iraq, no one digs

deeper, and no one uncovers more, than Elich.”

Stephen Gowans, political commentator, What’s Left

“Using a wealth of historic evidence and revelatory analysis, deep research

and eye-witness investigation, Gregory Elich treats what lawyers call the

‘hard cases’: Yugoslavia, Croatia, Zimbabwe, North Korea, and certain

untouched questions about Iraq, issues that have been most thoroughly

misrepresented in the corporate media and even by political commentators

and activists who claim to be on the left. Elich wastes no time with

genuflections to the dominant ideology. Instead he sticks to the awful facts

and glaring truths that compose the underlying reality of the U.S. global

empire. He ties in his deeply informed case studies to the wider issues of

U.S. imperial policy, the broader questions of war and peace, and the

general crisis that faces the entire world and the planet’s ecology itself.

Thereby he performs a most valuable service to persons all across the

political spectrum.”

Michael Parenti, author of The Culture Struggle, The Assassination of Julius

Caesar and To Kill a Nation

“For years, Gregory Elich has made his mark as a journalist-historian who

pairs a special literary flair with a talent for uncovering real time,

tightly held intelligence secrets. In this profoundly ominous time of

modern history, there are precious few contemporary writers who brook no

compromise with the truth. This volume stands tall, and the author is a

special breed.”

Louis Wolf, publisher of Covert Action Quarterly

“Informed Americans know about their government's interventions into

Vietnam, Cuba, Afghanistan, Iraq, and elsewhere. They know about the

violations of international law, the injustices, the lies, and the harm

caused by these actions. But the case of Yugoslavia tends to draw a blank.

Even worse, it tends to elicit support for this ‘humanitarian’ intervention.

Correcting this gross misunderstanding and distortion of history is one

reason among many for reading this book.”

William Blum, author of Killng Hope and Rogue State

“Gregory Elich offers a clear and vital analysis of the goals of private

interests and their secret collusion with the Bush administration to cover

up a broad range of dangers, from war to global warming. Scholars,

researchers and the lay public interested in US foreign policy will find

this book both vital and illuminating.”

Lenora Foerstel, Vice President of Women for Mutual Security and author of

Confronting the Margaret Mead Legacy

“Gregory Elich has dedicated himself to skillfully unearthing and

disseminating the information that typically goes unsaid. He provides us

with the well-researched fundamentals we cannot and should not expect to get

from our newspapers or televisions. Put another way, Elich teaches us to

identify the ‘gates’ that restrict our freedom of thought.”

Mickey Z, author of The Seven Deadly Spins and 50 American Revolutions

You’re Not Supposed to Know
