Mary Ferrell Foundation Press Publishes Updated Classic on the Deep Politics of War

Ipswich, MA - August 05, 2008 - THE WAR CONSPIRACY: JFK, 9/11, AND THE DEEP POLITICS OF WAR ($29.95; Softcover 435 pages; published by Mary Ferrell Foundation Press), is a fully updated version of renowned scholar Peter Dale Scott’s 1972 classic, THE WAR CONSPIRACY: THE SECRET ROAD TO THE SECOND INDOCHINA WAR.

Now including Scott’s seminal 1971 essay on the Johnson administration’s rewriting of Kennedy’s Vietnam policy and a lengthy epilogue exploring the parallels between Kennedy’s 1963 assassination and the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, THE WAR CONSPIRACY examines the many ways in which war policy has been driven by "accidents," suspicious intelligence failures, and other events in the field, in some cases despite moves towards peace being directed by presidents. The book explores the "deep politics" which exerts a profound but too-little understood effect on national policy outside the control of traditional democratic processes.

THE WAR CONSPIRACY: JFK, 9/11, AND THE DEEP POLITICS OF WAR is available from the Mary Ferrell Foundation website at http://www.maryferrell.org/wiki/index.php/MFF_Store and Amazon.com.
