TRAGEDY AND HOPE shows the years 1895-1950 as a period of transition from the world dominated by Europe in the nineteenth century to the world of three blocs in the twentieth century. With clarity, perspective, and cumulative impact, Professor Quigley examines the nature of that transition through two world wars and a worldwide economic depression. As an interpretative historian, he tries to show each event in the full complexity of its historical context. The result is a unique work, notable in several ways. It gives a picture of the world in terms of the influence of different cultures and outlooks upon each other; it shows, more completely than in any similar work, the influence of science and technology on human life; and it explains, with unprecedented clarity, how the intricate financial and commercial patterns of the West prior to 1914 influenced the development of today's world.

Carroll Quigley's Tragedy and Hope is one of the most researched account of the shameful American foreign policy that very much , not only amplified and extended since he wrote the book, it is what we are facing today which is war of annihilation on Islam and Moslem nations.
The totally bought and paid for Congress today by the AIPAC, and the role of the influential Zionist power configuration (ZPC) including the leading umbrella organization - the Conference of Presidents of 52 Major American Jewish Organizations (CPMAJO), are fully in charge and control, with the sole aim of removing the last vestige and trace of resistance against the global domination by the Zionists, at any cost, specially the American's blood and treasure.
Read it and learn from it.

A must for all bookshelves
This is a true labour of love: an epic journey through the history of the most pivotal century in Man's development so far. Quigley manages to somehow pick the seed from the chaff and add a refreshing perspective to the 20th Century, warts and all!
