Some might take issue with the way he disregards American official's repeated insistence in that an International Communist Conspiracy threatened American interests and had to be countered, but to do so is to miss his nuance. William Blum argues that some may have indeed believed this, but the facts of each intervention did not support it, and America's actions continue in the same vein well after the fall of the U.S.S.R. He is equally critical of soviet atrocities when they are relevant to the topic, but this is a book about America's, and so he does not focus on them.
This book is indispensable for anyone who wants to know the past. Regardless of where you stand, politically speaking, it is important to know America as it really acted, rather than how we wish it to be remembered.
a most enlightening book that sheds light on the world we live in, I would recommend this book to all people who are searching to understand the reasons for the continual conflict on this world.
