In this classic and unique volume that answers this question, William Blum serves up a forensic overview of U.S. foreign policy spanning sixty years. Remarks from the previous edition: "Far and away the best book on the topic."--Noam Chomsky "A valuable reference for anyone interested in the conduct of U.S. foreign policy."-- Choice "I enjoyed it immensely."--Gore Vidal "The single most useful summary of CIA history."--John Stockwell "Each chapter I read makes me more and more angry."--Helen Caldicott "A very useful piece of work, daunting in scope, important."--Thomas Powers, author and Pulitzer Prize--winning journalist "A very valuable book. The research and organization are extremely impressive."--A.J. Langguth, author and former New York Times bureau chief For those who want the details on our most famous -actions (Chile, Cuba, Vietnam, to name a few), and for those who want to learn about our lesser-known efforts (France, China, Bolivia, Brazil, for example), this book provides a window on what our foreign policy goals really are.
