In The Bush Agenda, Antonia Juhasz exposes a radical corporate globalization agenda that has been refined by leading members & allies of the Bush administration over decades & reached its fullest, most aggressive implementation under George W. Bush-& Bush Agenda adherents plan for it to outlast him.
Juhasz uncovers the history & key role of U.S. corporations in the creation of this agenda-focusing on Bechtel, Lockheed Martin, Chevron, & Halliburton-then presents the Iraq War as its most brutal application to date. Expertly revealing the oil timeline driving the war, Juhasz charts exactly how the administration has fundamentally transformed Iraqs economy, locked in sweeping advantages to its corporate allies, & exp&ed its target to the whole Middle East. The results of these same corporate globalization policies-dislocation, extreme poverty, & increased violence & terrorism-have been demonstrated in regions from South America to Africa to the Middle East & Asia, & in the United States.
Extensively researched & now updated with a new afterword, The Bush Agenda is a brilliant, informative analysis, revealing the hard truths about where the Bush administration & its corporate allies are leading the modern world-& what we can do about it.
