[A] scathing and devastating indictment of the ways in which security policy has failed in almost every way imaginable. . . . From an analytical but also, importantly, pedagogical point of view, one of the strengths of Addicted to Failure is its emphasis on primary documents. The chapters are well bound together, not only thematically but also methodologically, bringing official policy statements and postures to the fore. * Latin American Research Review *
The story of the United States in Latin America has not changed for a century, just the terminology. The United States is still dumping Monsanto's 'Roundup' on the fields of poor farmers, now in the name of fighting 'narco-terrorism.' The United States is still training Latin American military officers in repression at Fort Benning, now in the name of spreading democracy and markets. The United States is still forging 'military-to-military ties,' only now it's part of the 'global war on terrorism.' Addicted to Failure brilliantly exposes the hypocrisy and deceit of U.S. security policy and imperialist activities in Latin America. -- Chalmers Johnson, author of The Sorrows of Empire
