FROM THE PUBLISHER-In country after country in the U.S. sphere of influence ‘dominoes' have been falling, with military regimes and other dependent tyrannies coming into power in virtually all of Central and South America, and Thailand, Indonesia the Philippines, Zaire, and elsewhere. These regimes have almost uniformly displayed the following characteristics: (1) they represent a small elite interest, including the multinational corporation, which they treat kindly; (2) they all use terror, including modern forms of torture, to keep the majority unorganized, powerless, and as means to local elite and multinational corporate ends; (3) the leaderships of these states are almost invariably venal; (4) they have allowed already highly skewed income distributions to become still more unequal, and have caused a large fraction of their populations to be kept in a state of extreme deprivation. The broad purpose of this book is to show the nature, roots and vast scope of the real terror network-the U. S. -sponsored ‘authoritarian' states-and to examine the ways in which the magnificent propaganda machinery of the west has covered this over and Substituted in its place a lesser, and frequently concocted, network that includes-by careful definition and selectivity-only those terrorists who are challenging important western interests or who can be plausibly linked to its enemies. ‘Edward Herman has written a brilliant, compelling account of The Real Terror Network-the system of U.S. -sponsored authoritarian states. It is a book in the best tradition of social criticism and analysis-superbly informed, rationally and indisputably reasoned, yet also full of passionate commitment. The centerpiece of Herman s persuasive thesis is the necessary interdependence between the success of the ‘development model' these authoritarian regimes pursue and the terrorism of the masses they unleash. In addition, the sanctimonious hypocrisy of the press and media in treating the issue of terrorism is documented here beyond any doubt. The Real Terror Network is required reading. Herman has written a truly major work on the causes of the world's human condition. ' – Gabriel Kolko. ‘Edward Herman has written a passionate and stinging indictment of the vast networks of terror supported by Washington and of the apologists in the mass media who defend and disguise the crimes of the pro-western regimes. This study is the best systematic account of the highly selective and biased reportage of human rights violations by our leading publications. ' – James Petras, member of the Bertrand Russell Tribunal. ‘The Real Terror Network is a powerful indictment of the National Security State and its apologists. Edward S. Herman exposes the rationalizations, distortions and lies which are used to justify governments whose primary policy is to maintain order through disappearance, torture and death-frequently with the blessing and assistance of the U.S. government. ' – Isabel Letelier.
