Overall good book. Hunt is not a writer and as a reader one should remember this but his critique on foreign policy and the facets that affect it are good and should be read today as the U.S. continues involvement in the Middle East.
Excellent breakdown of American ideological principles. When one looks closely at the events of the Vietnam War, one will find that Hunt's arguments stand the test of scrutiny.
The best book I ever read on why American foreign policy makes sense.
