About the Author
Laura Knight-Jadczyk is a historian and author of 14 books that span many disciplines including history, psychology, spirituality and politics. Underpinning all of Laura's work is a powerful drive to discover the Truth, whatever that Truth might be. In her unique approach to research, everything is challenged and no official 'truth', no official version of events, is too sacrosanct to be exempted from rigorous testing. As she pursues her goal to uncover the solutions to the problems of Humankind, it is her love and respect for the Truth that makes her a truly peerless researcher and author.
Top Customer Reviews
The author Laura Knight-Jadczyk goes to great length to look at things from many different angles and continues to question reality where other writers often get into a fixed viewpoint. More than anything the reader is challenged to think for him/herself, as the solutions to the abundance of subjects raised are not handed to the reader on a platter. Many threads are being explored and pulled on in the various chapters and instead of just saying this is what it means the reader is gently encouraged to weave the threads together themselves and encourages to explore the subjects furher.
The author is down to earth and has a willingness to question everything that she has read, which means that everything is looked at from many different angles and sources. On top of it the book has a good index and source list which has proven valuable in the search for further understanding.
I read the first version of the book 3 years ago and reread this updated version of it. After reading the first one I was so enthused that I ordered and read a number of the books that are refenced as sources. Rereading the book gave me a new understanding of what I had previously read and made sense of many things that had first time around just been left in my mind in the 'dont know category'.
Since then I have had the good fortune to read every other book of the author and can only say that it has changed my life. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the more likely history of the world and the many mysteries and anomalies that have largely gone untold but which have shaped the current world situation.
As well as working to shatter the many illusions we all hold dear, it also offers a helping branch. Drawing on the esoteric works of the famous twentieth century teacher Gurdjieff, writer Mouravieff and master alchemist Fulcanelli, it is truly an alchemical work of crystal clear thought combined with a deep empathy for the suffering of mankind.
This is a must read for anybody who yearns deeply for the truth.
The COINTELPRO is an important term for the readers to be aware of and Knight-Jadczyk has widely used this term throughout the book because the activities of COINTELPRO are currently misdirecting or corrupting the course of humanity. The term "COINTELPRO" stands for "Counterintelligence Program," which is a "FBI’s secret program...set out to eliminate 'radical' political opposition inside the US [and it is also] a high level psychological operation specifically set up to vector 'ideological' trends – beliefs, etc" (p. 8).Read more ›
