The atrocities perpetrated on hundreds of thousands of Latin Americans by graduates of the US Army's School of the Americas will not come as a surprise to many. For the uninitiated, however, this book is sure to be an eye-opener. How many of us remember, every time we read of plunder, torture, and murder by corrupt military regimes in Central and South America, that almost all of them employ officers trained in these "arts" at Fort Benning's SOA, and that their clandestine education is funded by our tax dollars?In School of Assassins -- vital reading for anyone who stills harbors delusions about America's role abroad -- the author records the history of the school and its graduates. More important, he shows how the school's very existence is a hidden consequence of the imperialistic foreign policy shamelessly pursued by our government for decades, all with the express purpose of maintaining world dominance.Nelson-Pallmeyer offers ideas for ways to work toward closing the school, but he suggests that the true task ahead of us is continual, active opposition to the death-bringing hunger for power and control -- not only in the public arena, but in our personal lives.
