A good intro to the real history of America. The author spends an extensive amount of time on the dismal treatment of Native Americans starting with Columbus on up to early settlers. I did find some "comfort" in the fact that our country's foreign policy has been messed up since the beginning. However, I was left terrified by the fact that countless generations of American leaders haven't caught on to the fact that our foreign policy stinks, has always stunk and repeating the same errors time and time again wont make it shiner.
