This is the most important book I have ever read. A work of immense scholarship, while silent regarding our current plight, it points the United States (and the West) toward salvation. It does so by providing specific examples of how, and by whom the earlier United States coped with, and largely overcame, the forces of empire within.

Anton Chaitkin is an intrepid researcher. His book Treason in America is on my top ten for anyone who wants to understand the true nature of American history.
With his new offering, Chaitkin reminds us of the great promise that America offers to the world as a beacon of light, no matter how dark things get.

This brilliant book is revelation upon revelation. Who knew of earlier U.S. struggles of justice vs. empire/bribery/slavery, or that Benjamin Franklin’s 1771 visit to Ireland had such profound consequences for Ireland and the United States? Who knew Irish Catholic Matthew Carey, a writer at fifteen for the Irish patriots’ Hibernian Journal, became a writer for Franklin in Paris, and from there to Philadelphia where he played key roles thenceforth in shaping the American System in close association with Alexander Hamilton and others?
Fifty years ago, the Anglo-American establishment reversed the policies and principles on which America was founded, introducing globalism based on unfettered free trade. In this first volume, covering the 1750s to the 1850s, Anton Chaitkin looks at the strategists who created the American industrial revolution, arguing they did so to promote human progress rather than from a simple profit motive and that they encountered stiff opposition from the British empire and its American slave-plantation partners who feared industrialisation as a threat to their power. Not unexpectedly, this story is mainly about Americans but there is a very insightful chapter on how the British under Lord Shelburne developed a self-centred economic strategy in late 18th-century Ireland they would afterwards use against America and France. Thought-provoking and very relevant to our times.
