Since World War II, the United States has repeatedly posited itself as a defender of democracy, using its military might to promote freedom abroad even as it ascended to the status of the world's only superpower. The answer to almost every international problem, it seems, has been American military intervention--which is always pitched as a disinterested, noble attempt to deal with a crisis.

In America's Deadliest Export, William Blum mounts a powerful case against this belief--and against postwar American foreign policy in general. Stripping away the lies that have hidden America's true agenda, Blum reveals the real goals--and brutal consequences--of American militarism.

"A fireball of terse information--one of our best muckrakers."--Oliver Stone

"This book deals with unpleasant subjects yet it is a pleasure to read. Blum continues to provide us with convincing critiques of US global policy in a freshly informed and engaging way."--Michael Parenti, author of The Face of Imperialism

"With good cheer and humor Blum guides us toward understanding that our government does not mean well. Once we've grasped that, we're far more capable of effectively doing good ourselves."--David Swanson, author of War Is a Lie
