THE MANAGEMENT OF SAVAGERY tells the story of the parallel rise of international jihadism and Western ultra-nationalism. Since Washington's secret funding of the Mujahideen following the Russian invasion of Afghanistan in the 1970s, America has supported extremists with money and hardware, including enemies such as Bin Laden. The Pentagon's willingness to make alliances abroad have seen the war coming home with inevitable consequences: by funding, training, and arming jihadist elements in Afghanistan, Syria, and Libya since the Cold War and waging wars of regime change and interventions that gave birth to the Islamic State. Meanwhile, Trump's dealings In the Middle East are likely only to exacerbate the situation further. Blumenthal excavates the real story behind America's dealing with the world and shows how the extremist forces that now threaten peace across the globe are the inevitable flowering of America's imperial designs of a national security state. And shows how this has ended with the rise of the Trump presidency.

"Max Blumenthal has spent the last decade transforming himself into one of the most vital voices in journalism today, always speaking truth to power with fearlessness and integrity." - Reza Aslan, author of Zealot "One of the finest and most intrepid journalists working in America today." - Andrew Cockburn, author of Kill Chain "Max Blumenthal audaciously takes in-your-face, on-the-ground journalism into the realm of geopolitics."--Juan Cole, author of The New Arabs and Engaging the Muslim World "Looking for honest journalism--read Max Blumenthal."--Oliver Stone "A thought provoking disturbing book about America's foreign wars and the impact on the USA itself. Max Blumental cuts through official propaganda to the facts. He illuminates the darker corners of foreign policy drawing incisive and unnerving conclusions we ignore at our peril.He is a courageous and essential commentator for our troubled times. We all need to read this book to better understand the world we live in." - Gabriel Byrne "Insighful . . The failure, as Blumenthal writes, to place these conflicts in context, to examine our own complicity in fueling a justifiable anger, even rage, dooms us to perpetual misunderstanding and perpetual warfare. Our response is to employ greater and greater levels of violence that only expand the extremism at home and abroad.'" - Chris Hedges, TruthDig "The strength of the book is in connecting the dots, and the masterful narrative it weaves together. Most readers will find much that is new to them. A journalistic achievement whose importance could barely be exaggerated." - Asa Winstanley, Middle East Monitor "A useful antidote to the torrents of proempire bilge promoted by conservatives and liberals alike." - Morning Star "Blumenthal's angry book provokes anger, as well it should. He makes a convincing case that the cynical and failed policies of America's secretive military-intelligence apparatus helped deliver Trump into the Oval Office." - The Deep State
