Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

The World Anti-Communist League was founded in 1966. Its chief organizers were the Taiwanese and South Korean governments and an organization called the Anti-Bolshevik Bloc of Nations. It has since grown to more than 90 chapters on six continents, and includes ex-Nazis, right-wing terrorists, and other unsavory characters. The Andersons, unfortunately, have contributed little more to either the historical background or the philosophical underpinnings of the League. They include more than enough lurid accounts of the exploits of some of its members, but they leave too many questions unanswered. The names of several congressmen and Senators who have "attended" League conferences appear on a "League List" at the end of the book. Are those on the list to be condemned for merely attending? Are they card-carrying members? Do they adhere to the policies (whatever they may be) of the League? The Andersons either do not know, or do not tell. Not recommended.

This is a marvelous piece of investigative journalism that exposed the League for what it really was. The book is astonishingly still relevant given the continued presence of many of the mentioned crypto-fascists on the international scene. Those who bankrolled guerrillas in Ogaden didn't disappear with the end of the Cold War; they're still around, as are the "tecas" who killed leftists in Mexico.

If you love reading books about history then this one is for you. It really goes into depth about the backing and funding of right wing terror in central and south america. It shows its orgins in Eastern Europe and Taiwan and how it had real effects south of the border. I would recommend Mr. Jon Lee Anderson's Che as well.
