The CIA: A Forgotten History: US Global Interventions Since World War 2, by William Blum- (Revised and updated 1994 edition) Investigative author William Blum presents an extraordinary account of hundreds of US foreign policy interventions carried out by the CIA and the US Government since the end of World War II. The data, arranged country by country and year by year, ranges from actions against the Chinese revolution in the 40's, to interventions in the 80's and 90's against Nicaragua, El Salvador, Panama, and Haiti. These operations took many forms including armed aggression by US or US-backed forces; suppression of popular rebellions and movements, manipulation of trade unions, manufactured propaganda, attempted assassinations of political leaders, interference with elections, and attempted coups. More than 50 countries were the targets: hundreds of distinct, major intervention operations were carried out. The author also shows how mainstream media frequently neglected to probe, highlight, or even report many of America's aggressive actions abroad. Blum's scrupulous research and meticulous documentation are unparalleled in this shocking account carefully compiled from widely disparate sources.
In 1967, William Blum left the State Department abandoning his desire to become a Foreign Service Officer due to his opposition to US actions in Vietnam. He then became one of the founders of the Washington Free Press. Blum has been a freelance journalist in the United States, South America, Europe. His articles have appeared in a number of magazines, newspapers, and other publications, including The San Francisco Chronicle, The Los Angeles Times, Covert Action Information Bulletin and in a number of other magazines and newspapers, as well as the People's Almanac.
