Editorial Reviews

Review

A timely and important work, impressive for the breadth of its research, the clarity of its organization, the depth of its insight, and the acuity of its focus on a problem that has remained, for over a century, central to U.S. foreign policy. --Alfred W. McCoy, author of Policing America s Empire: The United States, the Philippines, and the Rise of the Surveillance State

A splendid contribution to the existing literatures that will be highly valued and much quoted by scholars and practitioners alike. --Martha D. Huggins, author of Political Policing: The United States and Latin America

When Henry Kissinger once famously quipped, 'A country that demands moral perfection in its foreign policy will achieve neither perfection nor security' he was articulating a point of view that has long held sway among many Western leaders. Kuzmarov's book might not tip the balance in favor of a more just and morally consistent world, but it's at least a thumb on the scale, and worthy of every reader's time and careful consideration. --BookPleasures.com

The scale and scope of research is remarkable, as is the author's astute ability to reduce complex issues into a readable narrative. . . . Kuzmarov has created in one insightful volume a superb history of an often-neglected aspect of American foreign policy. --The Journal of American History
