Edward Griffin’s “The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve,” which has gone through several printings since Griffin first published it in 1994. My copy is from the 19th printing in 2007. Former Texas US Representative (and Ob-Gyn) Ron Paul has written the book “End the Fed”.
