Product description


'Far and away the best book on the topic.' Noam Chomsky 'A valuable reference for anyone interested in the conduct of US foreign policy.' Choice (American Library Association) 'I enjoyed it immensely.' Gore Vidal 'The single most useful summary of CIA history.' John Stockwell, former CIA officer and author 'Each chapter I read makes me more and more angry.' Helen Caldicott 'A very useful piece of work, daunting in scope, important.' Thomas Powers, author and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist 'A very valuable book. The research and organization are extremely impressive.' A.J. Langguth, author and former New York Times bureau chief 'I am impressed. It is a valuable contribution.' Ramsey Clark, former Attorney General of the United States 'Blum has performed a very important service in collecting this information in one place, and the documentation is praiseworthy.' Teresa Pelton Johnson, Assistant Managing Editor, International Security, Harvard University 'A marvelous job of bringing together a lot of loose ends from many sources.' Philip Agee, former CIA officer and author 'I bought several more copies to circulate to friends with the hope of shedding new light and understanding on their political outlooks.' Oliver Stone

About the Author

William Blum is one of the United States' leading non-mainstream experts on American foreign policy. He left the State Department in 1967, abandoning his aspiration of becoming a Foreign Service Officer because of his opposition to what the US was doing in Vietnam. He then became a founder and editor of the Washington Free Press, the first 'alternative' newspaper in the capital. Blum has been a freelance journalist in the US, Europe and South America, and is the author of Rogue State and America's Deadliest Export.
