Inside Information

By Koehler, H.

London: Pallas Publishing Co.. Hardcover. B000L9G08G We offer a 1940 second printing/edition of the 1940 first printing. 269 pages. All five pages of black and white photographic plates present. Author "has had the advantage of working inside Germany as a member of the dreaded Gestapo, and he has been fortunate enough to get a real insight into the past actions and future plans of Hitler and his advisers. Will serve as a warning to those who are still inclined to underrate the determination and unscrupulous power of present-day Nazi Germany. Throws light on many hitherto unexplained actions and motives which have led to the present world-wide conflict." - dust jacket. "I left the Gestapo in 1938 and have lived since then the life of a refugee travelling restlessly from one country to another; but my earlier connections with the leading personalities in every country under the direct or indirect influence of Germany gave me the opportunity to collect references and reliable data which are already referring to facts which happened since I left the Gestapo. The overwhelming part of the material in the present book, however, gives a true account of my personal experiences." - Introduction. "What the Nazis would like to be secret history, revealed for your amazement." - Daily Mail. Binding somewhat tender but intact. Hinges sound. Red cloth-covered boards with yellow lettering on front.

Deadly Deceits: My 25 Years in the CIA

By McGehee, Ralph

Australia: Ocean Press. Paperback. 1876175192 [14], 231 pages. Footnotes. Glossary. Index. "The CIA is not now nor has it ever been a central intelligence agency. It is the covert action arm of the president's foreign policy advisers. In that capacity it overthrows or supports foreign governments while reporting 'intelligence' justifying those activities. It shapes its intelligence to support presidential policy. Disinformation is a large part of its covert action responsibility, and the American people are the primary target of its lies." - Ralph McGehee. "McGehee spent 25 years in the CIA from 1952-77. He entered a super-patriot at the height of the Cold War; he left disillusioned and shattered by what he had seen and learned, especially in Vietnam where he saw a tragic and senseless war develop." - back cover.

"Prentice-Hall drastically slashed its print run and advertising budget, despite the book's having met its advance sales target and won wide acceptance in reviews across the country. The almost immediate (and reportedly unprecedented) cancellation by BOMC (Book of the Month Club) of a book under such circumstances would have a chilling impact on most publishers, and Prentice-Hall was no exception. They allowed the book to go out of stock while demand for it remained high, and ultimately let it go out of print altogether." - Foreword. The above was discovered only after the author took Du Pont and Prentice-Hall to federal court. "I have tried, with admittedly humble resources, to explain what the Du Ponts and their extraordinary history mean for American society, its past and its future." - Foreword.

"The story of Sidney Cotton's pre-WWII reconnaissance flights - culminating in a tense episode in late August 1939, when his Lockheed was the last civil aeroplane to leave Berlin - is as thrilling as any novel of the secret service.

New world order: Corruption in Canada (New world order observed)

By O'Driscoll, Robert; Elizabeth Elliott, eds.

Toronto: Saigon Press. Paperback. 092174515X 648 pages including index. The first book of its kind in Canada. Casts rays into the deepest reaches of outer space and at the same time reveals the figures in the political carpet at home, diagnosing the disease that now infects the core of Canadian life: in Parliament, the civil service, the banking system, medical and social services, the Christian Churches, the military, "national security" Intelligence (Communication Security Establishment/CSE, CSIS), academia, and the astonishing penetration of central Canada by the Church of Satan. Reveals the individuals who have been active in creating a different version of Canada from the country our ancestors created and in which their families chose to live. These names include: Maurice Strong, John Polanyi, David Suzuki, Lester Pearson, The Canadian Instutute of International Affairs, Conrad Black, Brian Mulroney, Bob Rae, Mel Hurtig, Paul Desmarais, Pierre Trudeau, and many others. When he started this book in October 1993, Professor O'Driscoll was 'under investigation' by the University of Toronto for having published two prior volumes, of which this is the third of the trilogy. By the time this book was completed in 1994, he had been barred from his office, his files, his books, the Library, and had even been suspended from the University. Author is internationally known as a scholar with some 20 classical books from Oxford University Press, University of Toronto Press, Macmillan of London, Macmillan of Canada, McLean-Hunter, McClelland & Stewart, Canongate in Scotland, Dolmen in Ireland, and George Braziller in New York, who published his 'Celtic Consciousness' which was named by the American Library Association as the Outstanding Academic Book of the Year in its category in the United States in 1982. Professor O'Driscoll turned to his present investigations after events at the University of Toronto began to trigger in his mind a correspondence between what was happening locally and the huge political shifts that were beginning to take place in Eastern Europe. Contents clean and unmarked. Average external wear. Tight and square. A sound copy of this fascinating work. . Good. 1994. First Edition.
