Description - Friendly Fire by Julia E. Sweig
In 1945, the United States was perceived by nations around the world as a paragon of good government. Sixty years later, that perception had almost completely been reversed. America had, in fact, quietly sowed the seeds of its own decline in the eyes of the world in South America, where, under the guise of anticommunism, we sponsored dictatorships and turned a blind eye to killing squads. The world noticed and, helped by better scrutiny and faster technology, Anti-Americanism flourished among Americas closest allies like never before. As Anti-Americanism becomes a sweeping global phenomenon, Julia Sweig offers a masterly and caustic history of what went wrong, and a feisty and compelling prescription for how to sort it out.
