Item description for Who Really Runs The World?: The War Between Globalization and Democracy (Conspiracy Books) by Thom Burnett...
The world is a mess. It's constantly at war, things cost too much, and the average person struggles to survive against powers they can barely see, let alone control. It appears so at odds with common sense, in fact, that it begs a fundamental question: Who runs the world? This book looks at the conspiracies in everyday life, both hidden and not-so-hidden. It examines actual people, businesses, social networks, corporate alliances, and the dark forces of conspiracy and secret history that hold them together. The conclusions reached may shock and scandalize some people-especially those who fervently believe in democracy-but will fascinate everyone.

Keep looking, there are hundreds of books better Jul 8, 2007
Safely bypass this book. Can be somewhat intriguing to someone without a glance of critical thinking. This book doesn't even answer the question in the title. A collection of well-known facts, some minor factoids of the tabloid level ("Bush executive order # 12345"), just overview of publicly available information, generous use of word "conspiracy" - all this without a strong plot, jumping from topic to topic, and absence of quality argumentation or intriguing facts. Not a single reference to other documents or research in the end of the book - that alone tells you it is an exercise in futility. Zero stars.

This book provides more data for a basic premise already familiar to many of us, that exclusive enclaves of people who run corporations, government and quasi-governmental bodies, and others secretive, manipulate the world to their own ends and much to the harm of millions innocent. It does so through a would-be collage of illustrations that don't connect well to each other nor combine to build a whole greater than the sum of its parts. The presentation suggests someone wanting to capitalize on their career experiences more than a scholarly work that advances our collective understanding of critical topics.
For eminently more worthwhile investments of study effort, refer to works by Klare, Gelbspan, Chomsky, and J. Kunstler.
