To understand U.S. involvement in conflicts ranging from Guatemala to Congo to Vietnam, it’s necessary to look at the lives of the Dulles brothers, John Foster, who was secretary of state, and Alan, who headed the CIA. But to see what motivated these men, Kinzer argues in this dual biography and socio-political history, you need to consider America’s enduring self-image as the lone gunman, bringing order to lawless territories.
