Confronting the Third World

Confronting the Third World
Confronting the Third World by Gabriel Kolko

Kolko, author of eight books on modern American history, here examines the United States's involvement with Third World countries. His major thrust is that the United States was maintaining in Central America, and creating in the Middle East, an empire based on economic advantage and ideologically supported by anti-communism. The result was that the United States overextended itself beyond its vast resources, and that it supported petty tyrants, the Vietnam War, and cataclysmic failures such as Iran. A telling critique of U.S. policy, and a warning to deal with the conditions of the Third World, not ideologies, in the corridors of power. -- Richard B. Finnegan, Stonehill Coll., North Easton, Mass.
