Yet another frightening, exhaustively-researched history from Tim Weiner.

Abuses of power are rampant in the pages of this book, with Richard Nixon simply being the most obvious example.

Read this, and realize just how little the U.S. deserves its self-proclaimed reputation as a worldwide champion of freedom and equality.
