America's Stolen Narrative: From Washington and Madison to Nixon, Reagan and the Bushes to Obama

Submitted by TWIRIMaster on Wed, 01/01/2014 - 20:51

"Investigative reporter Robert Parry reframes key chapters of American history by exploring past events that still drive the U.S. political narrative – from why the Framers junked the Articles of Confederation in favor of the Constitution, to how the modern Republican Party embraced a win-at-all-cost ethos, to why the Democrats shy away from the hard work of accountability.

AMERICA’S STOLEN NARRATIVE takes you on a journey from America’s founding – and the plotting of George Washington and James Madison – to Richard Nixon’s sabotage of Lyndon Johnson’s Vietnam peace talks, on to the Watergate scandal (showing how those two dark chapters were really one continuous storyline). The book then explores the political deceptions that surrounded the presidencies of Ronald Reagan and the two George Bushes and explains how that false history entrapped Barack Obama.

Award-winning investigative reporter Robert Parry, a 35-year veteran of Washington journalism, broke many of the stories now known as the Iran-Contra Affair while working at The Associated Press and Newsweek."
