Product description

Review

"A powerful contradiction to the present US narrative of the world . . . As shown here, fake news is thriving in Washington, DC."
—Oliver Stone, Academy Award winning director and screenwriter

The Plot to Scapegoat Russia is a beautifully written, uncommonly coherent, and very compelling treatise on the issues facing America today... a troubling indictment of where we've been and where we're headed. Moreover, this book is profoundly important, and a timely retrospective review of American foreign policy misadventures since the advent of the Cold War.”
—Phillip F. Nelson, author of LBJ: The Mastermind of the JFK Assassination and LBJ: From Mastermind to “The Colossus”

The Plot to Scapegoat Russia underscores how the CIA’s infiltration and shaping of the media, which began in the 1950s, successfully continues today. A very worthwhile account for anyone who wants to understand how ‘reality’ is manufactured, while ‘real truth’ is murdered and buried.”
—Peter Janney, author of Mary’s Mosaic: The CIA Conspiracy to Murder John F. Kennedy, Mary Pinchot Meyer, and Their Vision for World Peace

This highly recommended book offers material so encompassing as to belie its small size. Kovalik’s writing is clear, evocative, and readable. Along the way, he recalls those causes and the outrage that fired up activists who were his contemporaries.”
Counterpunch

“Kovalik presents a persuasive case that the demonization of Russia and Putin is being used to justify war and more conflict with ever increasing military budget. Attorney Dan Kovalik has written an extremely important book that challenges the current media/political focus on “Russia-gate” and warns that dark forces of war are taking us in an ever more dangerous direction. ”
—Rick Sterling, Telesur

“At a time when the U.S. military budget is again soaring to enrich the oligarchs, this timely and thought-provoking book turns Orwellian ‘double-think’ on its head in a cogent analysis of what's really behind all the saber-rattling against Russia. In a scholarly but also deeply personal and fluidly written work, Dan Kovalik pulls no punches in dissecting the history of how America has justified its own imperialistic aims through the Cold War era and right up to the current anti-Putin hysteria.”
—Dick Russell, New York Times bestselling author of Horsemen of the Apocalypse: The Men Who Are Destroying Life on Earth and What It Means to Our Children

The Plot to Scapegoat Russia confronts the timeliest of subjects, the effort to resuscitate the Cold War by blaming Russian president Vladimir Putin for interfering in the 2016 presidential campaign on behalf of Donald Trump, an effort pursued by CIA and the Democratic Party working in tandem. Kovalik establishes... that not a scintilla of evidence has emerged to grant credibility to this self-serving fantasy... [and he] deftly eviscerates the mainstream press. Reading [this book] will be salutary, illuminating and more than instructive.”
—Joan Mellen, author of Faustian Bargains: Lyndon Johnson and Mac Wallace in the Robber Baron Culture of Texas

“Kovalik’s careful dissection of the US record makes Russia’s transgressions pale in comparison... [This] book provides a most timely analysis and documentation to combat the unholy alliance of neo-conservatives and liberals fomenting heightened world tensions.”
—Roger D. Harris, member of the State Central Committee of the Peace and Freedom Party in California

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

I am a husband and a father, and a labor & human rights attorney. I have been writing since I was in college and have never stopped. I feel compelled to write about matters of public concern, and truthfully, to be a dissident voice. Since travelling to Nicaragua in 1987, and seeing U.S. intervention up close, I have been against U.S. intervention in other countries and against the process of vilifying other countries in order to justify such intervention. That is really how this, my first book, came about. I am sincerely grateful to my publisher, Skyhorse Publishing, for making this happen.
