This book is not only very well-written and amply documented, it is prophetic — reminding us of the dark side of our national character that still informs the way we Americans think about ourselves and, unfortunately, conduct foreign policy. Having lived in Guatemala for five years, I know first hand the violent consequences of U.S. efforts at “regime change” to serve the interests of corporate power.
This reviewer cringes at how fellow “staunch” Presbyterians left no holes barred in their zeal to project onto Western thinking a war between good and evil and then set about to win it without giving a second thought to the log in the eye of their own foreign policies. This book should be required reading in all American history courses along with other books by Kinzer (Bitter Fruit and Overthrow).
