Clean, bright pages. A superb copy, easily the best we've ever seen.Professor Carroll Quigley's magnum opus, a world history of power with a focus on the Anglo-American elite. In many ways Quigley was a complex bundle of contradictions: a conservative defender of Western civiliation who opposed the Vietnam War and was Bill Clinton's mentor at Georgetown. During the early cold war he was a true Washington insider who worked as a consultant for the Defense Department, the Navy, and other government entities, but his work is most often referenced by perennial outsiders like the John Birch Society and conspiracy researchers like the late Jim Marrs.
