The Destruction of a Nation: United States' Policy Towards Angola Since 1945
In this thorough examination of US policy towards Angola from 1945 up to the present, George Wright assesses how each President from Truman to Clinton has carried out US foreign policy in general, and in Angola specifically, in a step-by-step case study that traces the dismantling of a Marxist regime by the West. Wright demonstrates the influence that policy planning organisations have in determining foreign policy and emphasizes the internal debates and struggles inherent in carrying out foreign policy. This well researched and well documented book is an invaluable critique of US intervention in a Third World state over five decades, before and after the end of the Cold War.
