1.0 out of 5 stars Boring proganda of an excuse for 45 years of American backed and directly committed murder of third world peoples, 5 Nov 2011
What more can u say about a historian who covers all the topics but never mentions the thousands of brown skinned people who died so that the minority in the west could have a easier life, only reading it because its compulsory for class, ur better off reading anything else

5.0 out of 5 stars Good history of resistance during the 20 century, 15 April 2008
I first saw Dave Zirin on democracynow.org and was intrigued enough to try this out. It's an exellent overview of resistance in the US starting with Jackie Robinson through Ali and up to modern athletes. It also covers important events such as Mexico 68 and gives more reasons for boycotting the Olympics than just Chinas treatment of Tibet. Overall a good read which shows that sport can be have an influence and raise awareness on issues of poverty and race rather than just being overpriced entertainment for the masses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Washingtons secret war in Venezuela, 15 April 2008
I enjoyed this book very much, as one that tries to stay up to date on political developments in Venezuela, I found it very informative in filling in the pieces of US involvement within Venezuelas domestic arena. This book covers the period mostly after the failed coup up to summer 2007. The author provides plenty of evidence from documents obtained using the FOI act and makes many conclusions based on this evidence. At under 200 pages it is a concise and to the point book, that avoids being bogged down in the personalities involved and sticks to detailing American attempts to destablise a democratically elected administration and thus reveals the true goals of its foreign policy in the region.
