The Naked Capitalist

By W. Cleon Skousen

Synposis: This sequel to The Naked Commmunist takes things above and beyond the first book, by exposing the secret power network of international bankers and elites that ultimately has been controlling the Communist conspiracy, and society itself, for generations now. The book is largely a re-telling and commentary on Carroll Quigley's monstrous 1,300-page historical work, Tragedy and Hope, which was sympathetic to the aims of the secret conspiracy yet revealed many of its operations in astonishing detail. Skousen does the work of sorting through Tragedy and Hope to make a coherent message for the reader about the plans and works of the secret combination.

Strong Points: This book makes an excellent introduction to the conspiracy network of the secret combination that is seeking to gain control over the world. Together with G. Edward Griffin's The Creature From Jekyll Island, the reader will be well-versed in the secret combination's network and activities. It is brief, yet informative and authoritative. I found it to be quite gripping at times. It is a small book, but an incredibly important book. If a friend you are trying to alert will not take the time to read The Creature From Jekyll Island, then suggest to them instead The Naked Capitalist as an introduction to the conspiracy.

Weak Points: Much of the book is large block quotes from Carroll Quigley, which I found a little burdensome because Quigley wasn't a very good writer. However, it was still very important to obtain his insights as he wrote them. Also, early on in the book a picture was mislabeled.

Interesting: 4.5/5

Must Read: 4/5

Overall: 4.7/5
