Memorial Day Special – Stephen Kinzer

kinzerGUEST: Stephen Kinzer, foreign correspondent for the New York Times, author of “All the Shah’s Men: An American Coup and the Roots of Middle East Terror,” and his latest: “Overthrow : America’s Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq.”

To commemorate Memorial Day, we’ll spend the hour with New York Times reporter, Stephen Kinzer on the topic of his latest book, “Overthrow : America’s Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq.” Kinzer is best known for his book about the US backed coup in Iran, “All the Shah’s Men: An American Coup and the Roots of Middle East Terror.” In his latest book, Kinzer begins with the ouster of Hawaii’s monarchy in 1893, and runs through various foreign governments that the U.S. has had a hand in toppling. Kinzer makes the case that U.S. intervention destabilizes world politics and often leaves countries worse off than they were before. Stephen Kinzer is a foreign correspondent for the New York Times. He spoke recently in Los Angeles at UCLA, on April 17th 2006. This speech was recorded by Global Voices for Justice.
