The Enemy Within the Empire: A Short History of the Bank of England (1941) by Eric D. Butler
Most orthodox history that is crammed into the heads of our children is one long list of
contradictions. There is no real background to our social development because the main
underlying factors have been completely ignored. The part played by the money system in the
growth of society has been tremendous; yet how many of our historians mention it? We teach
our children about the development of the British Commonwealth of Nations, although the real basis
of this growth has been either neglected of distorted, while the development of that powerful, private
and anti-social institution, the Bank of England, is very rarely mentioned.
