James “Whitey” Bulger became one of the most ruthless gangsters in US history, and all because of an unholy deal he made with a childhood friend. John Connolly a rising star in the Boston FBI office, offered Bulger protection in return for helping the Feds eliminate Boston’s Italian mafia. But no one offered Boston protection from Whitey Bulger, who, in a blizzard of gangland killings, took over the city’s drug trade. Whitey’s deal with Connolly’s FBI spiraled out of control to become the biggest informant scandal in FBI history.

Black Mass is a New York Times and Boston Globe bestseller, written by two former reporters who were on the case from the beginning. It is an epic story of violence, double-cross, and corruption at the center of which are the black hearts of two old friends whose lives unfolded in the darkness of permanent midnight.

Product rating: 5.0 with 1 reviews

Propaganda, by design, is one of the most misunderstood words in the English language. It’s not just something our enemies use. We invented modern propaganda and use it more than any country in history. Open, aboveboard propaganda like most advertising and PR isn’t inherently unethical. However, when it’s designed not to be detected, it can be both insidious and dangerous. Covert Propaganda and Molding the Mass Mind exposes a century-long hidden campaign to manipulate our thoughts and behavior and reveals how specific propaganda techniques have impacted numerous events at home and abroad—including how propaganda was involved in the decision behind dropping nuclear bombs on Japan in 1945.

Written by a former journalist and propagandist, this book unveils some 30 propaganda techniques that allow the economic power elite and its ghostlike propagandists to set parameters of behavior and to draw lines in the sand that we learn instinctively not to cross. Prepare to have your lifelong stereotypes shattered as you discover how your identity, actions, feelings, beliefs, and even relationships have been impacted by these covert strategies.

Packed with eye-opening examples of mass mind manipulation, past and present, this journey behind the covert curtain will open up a whole new world you likely never knew existed. It also offers ways to protect yourself from this mass onslaught on your senses.
