In this challenging, widely documented book, the distinguished Indian writer Patwant Singh examines US interventions in Asia from the Korean War to the invasion of Iraq in 2003 and its aftermath. He demonstrates graphically how US administrations have preferred juntas rather than elected governments; how the US economy is overwhelmingly geared to war; how the violence of America’s actions abroad has been accompanied by erosion of civil liberties at home; how, in short, in the last 50 years the ideals of America’s founding fathers have been turned upside-down.

Patwant Singh is one of India’s leading writers on international affairs. His articles have appeared in The New York Times, The Globe and Mail, the United Kingdom’s Independent and elsewhere.
