The Scorpion and the Frog: A Natural Conspiracy
by William A. Borst '65 and Mark T. Motte

In The Scorpion and the Frog (Xlibris Publishing), William A. Borst '65 analyzes 2000 years of history through a prism of conspiracy. By examining such traditional conspirators as the Masons and the Bilderbergers, as well as contemporary events like the 2004 presidential election, the book unveils the ideas that have unified conspiracies into a "coherent rendition of evil." Borst aims to show readers how money, power and the American sexual revolution have conspired to destabilize the conservative traditions of our country.

A historian and radio talk show host, Borst is the author of many books, most recently Liberalism: Fatal Consequences.

American Adventurism Abroad: 30 Invasions, Interventions, and Regime Changes Since World War II
by Michael J. Sullivan III '62

Michael J. Sullivan III '62 is the author of American Adventurism Abroad (Praeger Publishers), a comparative analysis of 30 American interventions into Third World countries. Using a historical approach, the author sets out to prove that U.S. foreign policy has been driven by the goal of being the ultimate power in the global capitalist economic system. In today's political climate of war and heightened patriotism, the author presents a provocative thesis that challenges traditional interpretations of America's role in the world. The book is dedicated to Philip Berrigan '50, his wife, and his brother, Daniel, who are identified as "Adventurers for Peace."

Sullivan is a professor of political science at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pa.

Democratic Capitalism: The Way to a World of Peace and Plenty
by Raymond B. Carey Jr. '48

In his book, Democratic Capitalism (AuthorHouse), Raymond B. Carey Jr. '48 presents the theory and practice of democratic capitalism by combining his extensive business experience with the thoughts of Adam Smith, Karl Marx and John Stuart Mill. The book's message is that, when democracy and capitalism are synergistic, "good things happen." Therefore, democratic capitalistic companies produce superior results, and nations that support economic freedom improve the lives of their people. Carey's book is a unique examination of America's economic free enterprise systems-and our society as a whole. Reviewing the book on the Senior Women Web site, critic Julia Sneden writes that Democratic Capitalism is "fascinating, important, erudite . written in a clear, accessible style . a masterpiece of meticulous documentation and explanation. . both catholic and meticulous .When you've read the book, you might want to consider sharing your copy with your Congressman or Senator, who would probably thank you for it."

A graduate of Harvard Business School, Carey has managed numerous companies, serving for 18 years as president, chairman and chief executive officer of ADT, Inc. He is currently head of the Carey Center for Democratic Capitalism.

Using Investor Relations to Maximize Equity Valuations
by Thomas Ryan '86 and Chad Jacobs '86

In Using Investor Relations to Maximize Equity Valuations, Thomas Ryan '86 and Chad Jacobs '86 reveal the capital market strategies and tactical operation tools they regularly employ to help their clients. After a decade spent watching corporate communication blunders cost shareholders and companies billions of dollars in market capitalization, former equity analysts Ryan and Jacobs set out to create a more professional, strategic and capable approach to investor relations. As co-founders of Integrated Corporate Relations, they have helped numerous chief executive officers define the tangibles and intangibles of valuation, package a company's story for Wall Street, and navigate the nuances of capital markets dialogue. Those lessons are presented clearly and illustrated with practical advice in their new book.

Ryan and Jacobs were roommates at Holy Cross. Their company, Integrated Corporate Relations, is located in Westport, Conn.
