From the Publisher"David Rieff's ongoing examination of international events and their protagonists is often colored by a deep skepticism, and there is indeed much to be skeptical about nowadays. His analysis, based on his firsthand observation, is stimulating and clear-eyed. His book is important for those who believe that ability to cope with the future starts with frank criticism and self-analysis, and that in human affairs and institutions one of the prerequisites for progress is a relentless examination of past events, mistakes, and illusions."
— Brian Urquhart, former Undersecretary General of the United Nations
