Currently Free on Amazon: "Tragedy and Hope" by Carroll Quigley

Carroll Quigley's book, Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time, is currently available for free for the Kindle.Amazon indicates that "Carroll Quigley (1910-1977) was a highly respected professor at the School of Foreign Service at Gerogetown University. He was an instructor at Princeton and Harvard; a consultant to the U.S. Department of Defense, the House Committee on Astronautics and Space Exploration; and the U.S. Navy." He was also the preeminent historian of his time. Although Tragedy and Hope was written in the 1960's, it is probably one of the most significant and complete histories of how the current international financial and political order was created. (Some of you may know that Tragedy and Hope was the book that W. Cleon Skousen reviewed and commented on in his book, The Naked Capitalist). It has not been a widely available book, so this is a good opportunity to read it.

As always, I would note that these deals on Amazon can end abruptly (I once ordered a book that went from "free" to "$3.99" sometime between my opening the web page and when I placed an order about a minute later).
