Astrea and the Titans. The Global Takeover of US Lobbies

Franco Cardini


Save us! The revolution has begun! The new Titans - the anonymous and faceless American multinationals - have unleashed their assault on Olympus. An erudite and sulphuric essay that is not afraid of hyperbole. Dario Fertilio, Il Corriere della Sera

Cardini recounts recent history and today's wars: a message that we believe cannot be returned to the sender. Mario Bernardi Guardi, Il Tempo

The self-rule of peoples and international order are today made vulnerable by the existence of several powerful lobbies that condition the Bush administration. The history of their ascent to power and the logic of force they promote - even if this means pushing the world towards chaos - are the principal themes of this book.
