This is also one of the few books that challenge the traditional narratives of Rwanda and the Balkans in the 1990s.
An entire set of documents covering decades of the relationship between Hollywood and Washington have been squared away in the private library of a Pentagon-approved historian Lawrence Suid. Despite the censorship, the documents that are at public disposal thanks to the FOIA requests and research of the authors detail how Washington manipulates Hollywood by making minor script changes, major script rewrites, casting calls and can even prevent films from being made.
This book is an easy read, but it also contains a ton of hard hitting information. Highly recommended.
