After becoming a New York Times best-seller just weeks after its release, “The Late Great USA” – which exposes government plans to promote integration of the U.S., Mexico and Canada – is No. 8 on the paper’s list of hardcover business books.

Written by Jerome Corsi, Ph.D., co-author of “Unfit for Command” which became a No. 1 New York Times best-seller and a decisive influence in the 2004 election, “The Late Great USA” exposes the multifaceted plan to turn the U.S., Canada and Mexico into a North American version of the European Union.

Corsi’s book, which already has reached the No. 1 spot on Amazon’s “Nonfiction” list, was No. 28 on the Times list overall list last week.

Although the book has attracted a firestorm of reader interest nationwide, the Bush administration is less enthusiastic, with Commerce Department spokesman Richard Mills attacking Corsi’s analysis comparing what’s happening in North America to the stealth process that brought about the European Union over the course of 50 years.

“The fact that ‘The Late Great USA’ is already in its third printing and is a New York Times best-seller,” said Corsi, “shows that people are getting the message about our government’s indifference – if not outright contempt – for what American citizens want, which is a free, strong and independent United States.”

The author added: “The defeat of the recent Senate immigration bill proves that our voices about the importance of American sovereignty are being heard. But clearly, George W. Bush still isn’t listening – or just doesn’t care.”

Understanding the plan to merge the U.S., Mexico and Canada, says Corsi, is “the only context in which the current immigration travesty makes sense – and it must be stopped.”

In “The Late Great USA,” Corsi shows how the Security and Prosperity Partnership, or SPP, an agreement signed in 2005 by President George W. Bush, Paul Martin of Canada and Vicente Fox of Mexico, is nothing less than a full-frontal assault on American sovereignty.

This aim to create a North American Union between the United States, Mexico and Canada is the real reason behind “comprehensive immigration reform.”

Says Corsi, “Bush’s goal to create a North American Union – with no borders, a shared currency, and utterly no voice for average Americans in their own futures – is the real reason he won’t enforce immigration laws.”

Utilizing thousands of documents released as a result of the Freedom of Information Act, “The Late Great USA” shows how unelected bureaucrats in faceless agencies such as the Department of Commerce have been given the power to foist the NAU on the American public incrementally.

“The European Union, which now holds millions of voiceless, voteless Europeans in thrall to a heedless Brussels bureaucracy, was put into place little by little over a 50-year period,” Corsi writes, “not by the citizens of the member states, but by elitists who disguised their goal of a regional government.”

In the book, Corsi details:

1. The tactics unelected globalist business leaders, bureaucrats and taxpayer-funded academics are using to lead to the merger of the United States with Mexico and Canada

2. How the state of Texas is seizing millions of acres of privately owned land so foreign investors can cash in on a NAFTA “super-highway” from Mexico to the Canadian border.

3. How China, through its proxies in Mexico, plans to bring the world’s sole superpower to its knees economically – without firing a shot.

“A North American Union would not just be the end of America as we know it,” claims Corsi, “but the beginning of an EU-like nightmare – a bureaucratic coup d’etat foisted upon millions of Americans without their knowledge or consent.”

“The Late Great USA” is a meticulously researched story of deceit, the chapters of which are being written in secret.

“The Security and Prosperity Partnership is not just unconstitutional, but an act of treason at the highest levels,” he says. “Anyone who cares about the future of this country – our children’s future – must act now against a North American Union and the underhanded way in which our sovereignty is being compromised, one illegal alien at a time.”
