“Andre Vltchek tells us about a world that few know, even when they think they do. That is because he tells the truth, vividly, with a keen sense of history, and with a perceptive eye that sees past surfaces to reality…”
“There is much that is revolting about the current world and Andre Vltchek, Christopher Black and Peter Koenig are well placed to document it, which they have done in their new book 'The World Order and Revolution! Essays from the Resistance'.
Using a combination of political, legal and economic analyses, Vltchek, Black and Koenig carefully strip away the façade that the corporate media presents to us, and which the imperial elite wants us to believe, so that we can see some of the ugly, underlying truth about our world.…”

THE WORLD ORDER and REVOLUTION! - Essays from the Resistance! is a compilation of essays (thoughts, analyses, and dreams) by three outstanding authors: an international lawyer, an economist, and a philosopher. They are fighting against neoliberalism and imperialism. Each engages in the struggle in his own way, maybe using different ‘weapons’, but the goals are the same: economic and social justice for those who do all the work in society, respect for the true freedom of the individual to experience and express their humanity, respect for the rights of others and dedication to learning of and writing about the true situation of the peoples of the world as they exist today and the future possible now and tomorrow.
The three authors are joining forces in order to fight for a better world. This book is for the people everywhere who are oppressed, as a sign of solidarity and a handshake. This book is also a warning to the oppressors, to whom they say: ‘j’accuse!’
All the three authors have seen the world as it is, and they have witnessed wrong in all its forms!
As an international lawyer, Christopher Black has had to confront the injustice of the laws and institutions of this criminal system. As an economist, Peter Koenig fights neoliberalism, which is, in summary, nothing else than economic fascism. As an observer and chronicler of history and world events, Andre Vltchek has witnessed some of the most atrocious moments in modern history, documented them, and exposed those responsible for the crimes against the people.
All three authors stood up to resist the destructive forces of imperialism and neoliberalism. All three authors refused to remain silent. All three authors became fighters. All three authors are hoping to spread seeds that may help awakening human consciousness.
We hope that you will join them!
