Thy Will Be Done: The Conquest of the Amazon: Nelson Rockefeller and Evangelism in the Age of Oil

'“This well-documented, clearly written book alerts us to the immense suffering and damage in the Amazon and elsewhere caused by multinational corporate greed and ultraconservative religious ardor, headquartered in the United States and abetted by covert foreign policies. The systematic violations against human dignity and ecological integrity continue and can only be stopped by being brought to light. To that end, this book does a highly commendable job.” —Los Angeles Times   “This damning thesis, based on substantial field research, interviews, and fresh documentation, will provoke considerable controversy. Highly recommended.” —Library Journal   “Astounding . . . A disheartening, tragic story that needs to be told and will attract much attention.” —Booklist   “An extraordinary piece of investigative history. Its message is powerful, its data overwhelming and impressive. Thy Will Be Done deserves wide attention.” —Howard Zinn, professor emeritus of history, Boston University, and author of A People’s History of the United States  '
