This review is from: Overthrow: America's Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq (Paperback)
Don't pick up this book if you don't want to read a book written by someone who is more on the left side of the aisle. You'll just get annoyed. If you don't mind, this is a great book. Kinzer explores (quickly) how the US has been involved in the "changes" in many international movements and governments. This is not a research book. Each chapter gives you little tidbits of important historical moments. Luckily, it seems that Kinzer has written books on many of those in case you wish to do more exploring. This is one of those books that makes you raise an eyebrow and yearn for more.
