9780333543757: Friendly Tyrants: An American Dilemma

What do the South Vietnamese government, the Shah and Ferdinand Marcos have in common? All were allied to the United States; all defied democratic and liberal norms; and all three fell in a blaze, creating problems for the United States. These three cases - and another eighteen more - are the subject of Friendly Tyrants, the first study ever to survey the contentious, persistent problem of U.S. government relations with pro-American authoritarian rulers.

From Library Journal:

The dilemma in American foreign policy has been the clash between our desire to support democratic values and the realpolitik demands of self interest. This volume collects some 20 well-written, effectively edited, and insightful essays that resulted from the Foreign Policy Research Institute's three-year study of American relations with pro-U.S. authoritarian regimes. In part one, policy analysts and practitioners examine historic examples such as the Shah of Iran, Ferdinand Marcos, and South Vietnam in order to deduce lessons applicable to managing current and future cases addressed in part two. Additional essays attempt to generalize and offer policy guidelines. Readers will find little new in the way of theory and minimal references to other literature, but a vast mine of practical detail awaits serious students of American foreign policy. Recommended for academic and larger public library collections.
