Overthrow made me realize how poor my education of US history is, and saddly my foreign policy understanding as well. I am shocked that I hadn't learned about some of these coups in, say, my foreign policy to Latin America class in college or any one of my other international relations courses. This is an excellent primer for anyone who wants to understand current world events and why "they" might possibly hate "us."

Michael Roach You took the words right out of my mouth! This was my first reaction to reading this book -- why didn't we learn any of this in schools, especially given how extensive the repercussions have been.
