S organization whose nature he "Contrasts To Right Wing "to right wing claims a Communist ConspiracyThis Radical Right conspiracyThis radical Right tale which is now an accepted myth in many groups in America pictured the recent history of the United States in regard to domestic reform and in foreign affairs as a well organized plot by xtreme Left wing The Summer Palace: A Captive Prince Short Story (Captive Prince Short Stories Book 2) elements This myth like all fables does in fact have a modicum of truth There doesxist and has xisted for a generation an international Anglophile network which operates to some xtent in the way the Radical right believes the Communists act In fact this network which we may identify as the Round Table Groups has no aversion to cooperating with the Communists or any other group and freuently does so I know of the operation of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years in the Campfire early 1960s toxamine its papers and secret records I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have for much of my life been close to it and to many of its instruments I have objected both in the past and recently to a few of its policies but in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown and I believe its role in history is significant nough to be known uigley was dismissive of the authors who used his writings to support theories of a world domination conspiracyOn Gary Allen s None Dare Call It Conspiracy he saidThey thought Dr Carroll uigley proved verything For Hurrah For The Blackshirts!: Fascists and Fascism in Britain Between the Wars example they constantly misuote me to thisffect that Lord Milner the dominant trustee of the Cecil Rhodes Trust and a heavy in the Round Table Group helped finance the Bolsheviks I have been through the greater part of Milner s private papers and have found no Adam Smith: An Enlightened Life evidence to support that Further None Dare Call It Conspiracy insists that international bankers were a single bloc were all powerful and remain so today I on the contrary stated in my book that they were much divided often fought among themselves had great influence but not control of political life and were sharply reduced in power about 1931 1940 when they became less influential than monopolized industry uigley argued that the Round Table groups were not World Government advocates but super imperialists He stated that theymphatically did not want the League of Nations to become a World Government Yet Lionel Curtis who according to uigley was one of the leaders of the Round Table movement wished for it to be a World government with teeth writing articles with H G Wells urging this one fascinating oddity is a uote by Huntington These transnationalists have little need for national loyalty view national boundaries as obstacles that thankfully are vanishing and see national governments as residues from the past whose only useful function is to facilitate the Crazy Love elite s global operations Samuel P Huntington I read this back in thearly 90 s I was lucky to get it on interlibrary loan as it was out of print then I m so glad it is back in print now It is ssential reading if you want to know about what happened and who caused it to happen I m looking forward to reading it again This book still gets a lot of interest ven though uigley has been dead for over 40 years Perhaps his mention by Bill Clinton in his inaugural address has maintained interest There have been other drivers of interest for uigley and this volume as well not all of them laudable or fairI rated the book highly because of the impact it and the class for which it was read has had on me To this this day I vividly remember uigley s classes five semesters as if they were yesterday The agendas he raised have remained with me ver since He was the first professor I had who was a real showman in class from the giving of xams to the telling of funny stories What was so important however was that he worked very hard to give meaning to the complex of facts vents and people that comprise world history He tried to capture the flow of history the deep longstanding streams flowing through it and the relative few significant forces propelling it The idea that history can be looked at this way is a powerful one specially to an impressionable undergraduate It made you feel like you were working with big time ideas and real scholarship at least those were the impressions I had of the Black Heart, Red Ruby experience With this said I have to also admit that without the personalxperience I doubt I would have rated the book as highly as I do The book is under referenced and reads as if it is a collection of detailed lecture notes To some xtent that is OK but I increasingly find it important to double check the sources and xamine detail below the level of the main storyuigley is also prone to considerable generalization and I came to view my subseuent ducation as a process of finding out which of my undergraduate revelations held up under focused scrutiny Many of uigley s did not hold up although the process of coming to realize that was itself a valuable ducationI have also become increasingly skeptical of Dreaming Me: An African-American Woman's Buddhist Journey evolutionary views of civilizations such as uigley s The devil is almost always in the details and overly broad stories canncourage hero worship rather than critical thinking Looking back uigley H two world wars and a worldwide conomic depression As an interpretative historian he tries to show ach vent in the full complexity of its historical context The result is a uniue work notable in several ways It gives a picture of the world in terms of the influence of different cultures. .
Frankly a disappointing book For all its bulk and the hype surrounding it this is definitely not an insider s look at how the Eastern Establishment operates Rather it is one professor s rather slanted interpretation of world history from about 1890 through 1963 Professor uigley ran out of invectives to hurl at Joe McCarthy but utters barely a whisper about Harry Hopkins close adviser to FDR and other players who likely had long term influence and did damage than McCarthy For a sound objective look at history and conomics go to books by Murray Rothbard Often the favorite of

Huge contribution to my life was in capturing Western values ideas of balance moderation and inclusion as keys to Western success of balance moderation and inclusion as keys to success is a broad story of Western History and I am thankful to uigley for introducing me to his variant of itThere is a lot of good history being published these days I am still reading it with avid interest due to Carroll uigley and Tragedy and Hope which I read for his two semester class in the World since 1914 This book covers 15o years up to the 1960s of social development that uigley associates with the rise of positions of power in the western world As daunting a book as it may seem it is one that must be read Power conomic influence globalism and the transnational forms of government If
you can get your hands on it readcan get your hands on it read I think I first found out about this book from a footnote in a John Taylor Gatto book Somehow I got the impression that this was THE go to history book to xplain conspiracy theories I got the book I got the book to tell what they been DOIN to us all angry mob guy from the movie Rigoletto A bit of searching on the internet seems to confirm that many people view it this way as well though I also uickly got the impression that most people don t read TH but another book that uotes some portions of TH None Dare Call It Conspiracy I remember seeing NDCIC laying around our house when I was a teenager though I never got around to reading it myself and for all I know neither did my parents As it turns out the author of NDCIC was a prominent member of the John Birch Society And the founder of Koch Industries was also a founder of JBS Interestingly nough TH mentions the John Birch Society it was laughably ironic Well of course the people who read a short paperback promoting conspiracy theories aren t the kind of people who want to read a 1300 page textbook written by an Ivy League College Professor Well the joke s on them Apparently I am the latter Even if it takes me Bidadari yang Mengembara eight years insert mic dropAnyway yeah it took meight years to finish this book I kept putting it down and reading other books then coming back to it over and over I can t say it wasn t mostly long and dry Lots and lots of facts and figures about WWI WWII and then the Cold War But out of it all I did come away with a sense of history that I didn t have before There were many portions of social commentary that were actually uite fascinating Of course many of the ways he presents things specially other cultures now seem prejudiced and dated but it was written 50 years ago ya knowI still want to read his book The Evolution of Civilizations An Introduction to Historical Analysis I m very suspicious that it somehow influenced Sid Meier For those who don t recognize the name see Sid Meier s Civilization This gigantic book 1350 pages reminds me in an odd way of Roger Penrose s almost ually massive The Road to Reality which I read last year In both cases we have an unusually gifted person who sets out to present an integrated overview of an La strada delle croci entire field For Penrose it s modern physics for uigley it s world history during the period from 1895 to 1960 In both cases we soon discover that the author has a highly non standard but strangely persuasive view of their respective subject which involves juxtaposition oflements normally considered in isolationPenrose spends much of his book setting the scene for his unorthodox ideas about the connections between General Relativity uantum theory thermodynamics and the origins of the universe right or wrong there are many points in the argument where it is impossible not to wonder why other authors so resolutely refuse to put things together and ask certain uestions What is the actual relationship between the volution of the uantum mechanical wavefunction and its apparent collapse when an observation is made Does gravity have anything to do it Why was the universe created in an xtremely low The Ballad of Dorothy Wordsworth entropy state Is there any real reason to think that there could be dimensions than the four we can see Even if Penrose is completely out to lunch a distinct possibility he is reminding us that these issues are far interesting and fundamental than the theory tweaking that most physicists spend their time on If you don t think big you re never going to win bigAnd similarly with uigley who resolutely refuses to let himself be limited by a single perspective or narrow conceptions of political correctness His account of recent history combines at least five main strands macroconomic theory power relationships weapons technology psychology and religion It is uite startling to see how much he knows about all of them He moves smoothly from xplaining how deflationary policies caused the post World War I German depression to describing the way investment in arms manufacturing can redistribute wealth and kick start an conomy to a discussion of Douhet s 1922 theory of strategic bombing and how it influenced Britain s policy of appeasement towards Nazi Germany to an account of the development of radar and how it assured the Allied victory in the Battle of Britain The level of detail is breathtaking there s a reason why the book is so long and indeed you often feel that he s reluctantly cutting And outlooks upon ach other; it shows completely than in any similar work the influence of science and technology on human life; and it xplains with unprecedented clarity how the intricate financial and commercial patterns of the West prior to 1914 influenced the development of today's wor. ,
