Mr. Kinzer talked about his book Overthrow : America’s Century of Regime Change from Hawaii to Iraq, published by Times Books. He discussed the U.S.'s long history of regime change and proposed that the U.S. invasion of Iraq had historical roots going back to the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy in 1893. He said that while the policy of direct military involvement to achieve regime change was put on hold during the Cold War, it had been reestablished since the fall of the Soviet Union. Mr. Kinzer also talked about fourteen episodes of regime change contained in his book, including America’s involvement in Cuba, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Iran. He answered questions from members of the audience following his remarks. close
