"The Power of Reason: 1988" is the autobiography of the man who is arguably the most controversial, intriguing, brilliant, and extraordinary American, and world citizen alive today. As LaRouche himself notes: "Since the beginning of the 1984 Presidential campaign, I have been at the center of some among the leading crisis-developments affecting current history, including the Soviet and liberal establishment efforts to destroy the Strategic Defense Initiative." This book was written, in fact, when LaRouche was known most prominently around the world, as the author of what President Ronald Reagan called, the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI). It was LaRouche's role in convincing the Reagan administration to adopt his plan, that was largely responsible for earning him the hatred of the Anglo-American establishment, including the incoming Bush administration, that led to his unjust indictment and imprisonment which followed.

Lyndon LaRouche, a man who is today, without question, the world's leading economist, was already at the center of current history when this book was published 13 years ago. Some of the commentaries released by his collaborators around the world: "The book 'Operation Juarez' by Lyndon H. LaRouche, is the most important contribution to the understanding of the problem of development sector debt and for reaching a rational solution."From the Author:
From the Author's Forward:
During the course of the past nearly 20 years, I have become perhaps the most controversial among the influential figures of this decade.
Unlike all of the other leading candidates for the U.S. presidency since 1945, I am an influential original thinker.... For the past 40 years, the successful candidates for the presidency have been persons who, in the customary manner of speaking, advanced their own political career up to that point, by doing "the right thing at the right time," saying and doing nothing which will make enemies among important factions of the "establishment."
...My purpose is to present my development as I would recommend a biography of Mozart be written, or the biography of any other notable historical figure. My purpose is to show the mainspring of my behavior, to present what might otherwise be regarded as my innermost secret.
