The author clearly has an axe to grind and doesn't mind including some glaring inaccuracies and distortions to grind it. This is a polemic posing as scholarship.

Format: Paperback
James Gibney, one of my most respected sources for common-sense and integrity, posted a review of this book on 15 January 2006 in the New York Times. At Phi Beta Iota, the Public Intelligence Blog, I have posted that three-page review along with some other original references on "Colonel" Landsdale, a journalism drop-out from UCLA and form advertising person, that document the role he played in making genocide and atrocities part of the "Made in USA" Cold War tool-kit.

"The truth at any cost reduces all other costs."

Ten other recommended books:
War is a Racket: The Antiwar Classic by America's Most Decorated Soldier
Legacy of Ashes: The History of the CIA
The Sorrows of Empire: Militarism, Secrecy, and the End of the Republic (The American Empire Project)
The Fifty-Year Wound: How America's Cold War Victory Has Shaped Our World
Overthrow: America's Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq
Killing Hope: U.S. Military and C.I.A. Interventions Since World War II-Updated Through 2003
Why the Rest Hates the West: Understanding the Roots of Global Rage
The Eagle's Shadow: Why America Fascinates and Infuriates the World
Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
The Global Class War: How America's Bipartisan Elite Lost Our Future - and What It Will Take to Win It Back

At Phi Beta Iota the Public Intelligence Blog it is possible to access all of my reviews via any of 98 categories 9e.g. Intelligence, Secret; or Pathology of Power; or Empire, etcetera, something Amazon has refused to make possible since I began suggesting it years ago.
