Peter Dale Scott is our most fearless and illuminating chronicler of the lethal and mysterious web of unaccountable violence linking government to organized crime, the drug trade, state terror…”

— Richard Falk, Princeton University + U.C. Santa Barbara

“I said of…Drugs, Oil and War (by Peter Dale Scott) ‘It makes most academic and journalistic explanations of our past and current interventions read like government propaganda written for children.’ Now Scott has written an even better book.”

—Daniel Ellsberg, author of Secrets: A Memoir of Vietnam and The Pentagon Papers

Peter Dale Scott, a former Canadian diplomat and professor emeritus at U.C. Berkeley, is a leading political analyst and highly regarded poet. His most recent books are The Road to 9/11: Wealth, Empire, and the Future of America; The War Conspiracy: JFK, 9/11 and the Deep Politics of War, and Drugs, Oil, and War: The United States in Afghanistan, Colombia, and Indochina. He has been awarded the Lannan Poetry Award.

Scott’s latest book is American War Machine… Deep Politics, the CIA, Global Drug Connection, and the Road to Afghanistan.

“Peter Dale Scott flashes a bright light on a dark, illicit world of lowly thugs and high-placed political and moneyed cabals. Thoroughly researched and deeply informed, this book makes for an intriguing read.”

— Michael Parenti
