About this title:
Synopsis:
Is the United States a force for democracy? From China in the 1940s to Guatemala today, William Blum presents a comprehensive study of American covert and overt interference, by one means or another, in the internal affairs of other countries. Each chapter of the book covers a year in which the author takes one particular country case and tells the story - and each case throws light on particular US tactics of intervention.

About the Author:
WILLIAM BLUM left the State Department in 1967, abandoning hopes of becoming a foreign service officer because of his opposition to what the US was doing in Vietnam. He became a founder and editor of the Washington Free Press, the first 'alternative' newspaper in the US capital. As a freelance journalist, he worked in Chile in 1972-3, writing about the Allende government and its tragic overthrow in a CIA-designed coup. He is the author of Rogue State (Zed Books, revised edition, 2001).
