Forbidden Bookshelf: Publishing The Books “They” Don’t Want You To Read

The Lords of Creation

First published in the midst of the Great Depression and now republished by Forbidden Bookshelf, this acclaimed classic details the economic history of America in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and exposes the capitalist giants who changed the world.

Forbidden Bookshelf brings “disappeared” books back to life so that readers may finally learn what the “powers that be” did not want anyone to know…

“As America does not ban books, other means—less obvious, and so less controversial—have been deployed to vaporize them.

For more than half a century, America’s vast literary culture has been disparately policed, and imperceptibly contained, by state and corporate entities well placed and perfectly equipped to wipe out wayward writings.

By looking deep into the darker trends and episodes in US history, these brave works help show how America became the land it is today, and how we might start to change it.”
