Facsimiles of many of these government documents are found in the appendix. The volume is not indexed. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

'Presents an alternate view regarding America's attempts to influence regional politics and economics. As libraries owe their readers arguments on both sides of current issues, this book is recommended' -- Library Journal 'The antidote to [the Bush adminstration's] poisonous propaganda [about Hugo Chavez]. Well written, with solid evidence, this the political survival guide to the land of the next oil war' -- Greg Palast, author of The Best Democracy Money Can Buy '[Eva Golinger] was labelled an 'official troublemaker' by the Pentagon and recieved many anonymous death threats. This book serves as eloquent defiance to all that, 25,000 copies of which she has already given out free in the streets of Venezuela!' -- Labour Left Briefing
