US actions in Asia in the past 55 years have contributed to the deaths of over 10 million people, yet the developed world hears little of the price Asians have paid for the furtherance of American interests on their continent.

In this challenging, widely documented book the distinguished Indian writer Patwant Singh examines the history of US interventions in Asia from the Korean War to the capture of Saddam Hussein. He shows graphically how, in the dangerously one-sided world order that has emerged since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the anti-imperialist ideals of America's founding fathers have been turned upside-down.

"completely engrossing, with a combination of historical scholarship and contemporary urgency which I've found nowhere else..." Anthony Sampson
