Titel: Inventing the Axis of Evil
Sub titel: The truth about North Korea, Iran and Syria
As the Bush administration prepares to go after "The Axis of Evil," the foremost experts on North Korea, Iran and Syria are setting the record straight on the countries' histories, politics and US relations. A vital corrective to the saber-rattling of the Bush administration and an expose of the dubious claims that may well underwrite America's next war. North Korea, Iran, and Syria are on their way to becoming the next targets of the Bush administration, yet Westeners generally know very little about these three "evil" countries beyond what the Pentagon has told them. In `Inventing the Axis of Evil, noted experts on each country set the record straight, confronting relentless fear-mongering with hard facts. The authors explore each country's history and internal politics alongside the spotty record of past US interventions - including the war in Korea and the CIA-sponsored overthrow of Iran's elected Prime Minister in 1953. While entertaining no illusions about these despotic regimes, Inventing the Axis of Evil demonstrates that the whole truth is more complicated.
