Reviews
"Bea Edwards has written a vital book about the ridiculously cozy relationship between corporate wealth and government power and how it only seems to be getting worse. It's up to the rest of us now to do something about it."
--William Cohan, New York Times and Financial Times reporter and author of Money and Power: How Goldman Sachs Came to Rule the World

"A must-read for those who love this country and wish to preserve its fast-fading democracy. Edwards is an extraordinary writer who brilliantly captures the essence of what whistleblowers such as Snowden have sacrificed their careers and jeopardized their personal liberties to convey to each of us. This book has arrived just in time if--and only if--those who are moved by it take concerted practical actions to reverse the silent coup that we suffered in 2001."
--Daniel Ellsberg, Pentagon Papers whistleblower and Director, Freedom of the Press Foundation
