did not like it

What a disappointment. This book might open your eyes if you knew nothing about modern neo-imperialism or the role of the U.S. government in perpetuating a system of "development" that only led to dependency. As is, I spent the majority of my time with this book thinking about how little sympathy I had for the author, who got rich for YEARS as an agent of empire, and is now laughing all the way to the bank with his New Age-y mea culpa. There are much better expositions of American empire with much less blood on their hands.
