As an Economic Hit Man (EHM), John Perkins helped further American imperial interests in countries such as Ecuador, Panama, Indonesia and Saudi Arabia. As Chief Economist for the international consulting firm Chas. T. Main, he convinced underdeveloped countries to accept massive loans for infrastructure development and ensured that the projects were contracted to multinational corporations. The countries acquired enormous debt, and the US and international aid agencies were able to control their economies. He tried to write this book four times but was threatened or bribed each time to halt. The events of 9/11 - a direct result of the activities of EHMs in the 1970s - finally forced him to confront the role he played himself, and to reveal the truth to the rest of the world. Confessions of an Economic Hit Man has become a word-of-mouth bestseller in the US. It has been called the book that finally 'connects the dots, the book that best explains what is really going on in the world'.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An entirely riveting and vital expose of the immoral, underhand dealings of the American corporatocracy - *****" * Independent on Sunday *
"It's all here, in toe-curling detail" * Guardian Weekend *
"One of the most remarkable books I have read in a long time. It is also one of the most frightening ... Perkins' aim is to expose the empire in order to dismantle it. He got out, he emphasises - and the wider world can get out too. We can disband the empire, but only if we know how it really functions. There are few better paces to find out" * New Statesman *
"Once you've absorbed the book's central message, it makes the news look rather different" -- Nicholas Lezard * Guardian *
"Perkins has ripped open the belly of the financial buccaneers from his unique place on the inside. Here are the real-life details - nasty, manipulative, plain evil - of international corporate skullduggery spun into a tale rivaling the darkest espionage thriller" -- Greg Palast, author of THE BEST DEMOCRACY MONEY CAN BUY
