    "Regime change" did not begin with the administration of George W. Bush, but has been an integral part of U.S. foreign policy for more than one hundred years. Starting with the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy in 1893 and continuing through the Spanish-American War and the Cold War and into our own time, the United States has not hesitated to overthrow governments that stood in the way of its political and economic goals.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was a very interesting read on the history of American intervention in the affairs of foreign nations. The author does a fantastic job weaving the evolution of involvement from American business men facilitate ensure monolopistic trande to coordinated efforts from the Office of the President to install anti-communist regimes.

    Though I highly enjoyed this book, it is not for everyone. It holds a strong glass to the face of America, challenging the perception we have of ourselves, our history and our purpose.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    Seeing the tumble down the slippary slope of intervention without proper moral/legal authority.


    What aspect of Michael Prichard’s performance would you have changed?

    Michael Prichard has a commanding voice, giving an air of authority to the account.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    How many time the US has stepped in without proper information and authority to do so.
