Ever since the "axis of evil" label was first applied by President Bush in his 2002 State of the Union address, the hawks in his administration have left little doubt as to where they intend to turn their attention after Iraq: North Korea, Iran, and Syria. Yet most Americans know very little about these three countries beyond what the Pentagon has told them.

The Truth About North Korea, Iran, and Syria. by Bruce Cumings ; Ervand Abrahamian & Moshe Ma’oz. Kim Jong Il, the North Korean dictator, is not a nice man. But he has this in common with North Korea’s would-be liberator, writes longtime Asia hand Cumings (Univ. of Chicago): Like Bush, he has to contend every day with the knowledge that he would not be where he is without Daddy’s provenance. Yet most Americans know very little about these three countries beyond what the Pentagon has told them

Ever since the “axis of evil” label was first applied by President Bush in his 2002 State of the Union address, the hawks in his administration have left little doubt as to where they intend to turn their attention after Iraq: North Korea, Iran, and Syria. Yet most Americans know very little about these three countries beyond what the Pentagon has told them.

For those wanting to know more about “who’s next,” this “timely exposition on global (in)stability” (Korean Quarterly) by three leading experts on each country sets the record straight, confronting relentless fearmongering with hard facts. The authors explore each country’s history and internal politics alongside the spotty record of past U.S. interventions, including the Korean War and the CIA-sponsored overthrow of Iran’s elected prime minister in 1953. As one reviewer pointed out: “The most important thing we know about Syria is that we really don’t know what’s going on in Syria” (Slate). While entertaining no illusions about these despotic regimes, Inventing the Axis of Evil demonstrates that the truth is far more complicated than some would have us believe.

This a good book to gather information and historical trends of the countries it talks about however I think the justifiably liberal point of view looses a little creditability because it gets emotional at times- sort of like it is trying to persuade me too much. I can do without the slights and overly slanted remarks. Facts reflect fact: you don't have to spin up the truth too much to get your point across. I like the book but it makes me think the author(s) might have been insiders or closely related to but for some reason now have sharp teeth and snarls about the subject.

If you are a devotee of the MSM and mainstream academia, this book will come as a bit of a shock and you may not like it at all, but ... give it a try, anyway. And fact-check it (the Right declines to do so, which is no surprise).

Three authors address three countries which the US Govt at various times over the last few decades has placed into a box. Luckily, for now you may do your own investigation and make up your own minds, much to the consternation of the Right. You will come away with a different view than likely the one with which you started, after you read this book. Feel free to fact-check, and ignore any jingoistic sloganeering designed to bring freedom of thought to an end.

Demonized the most of the three countries is North Korea, I think. Noted Korea scholar Bruce Cumings reworks various factual points that he has brought up before, in his other works, but in this volume they are stated a bit more succinctly IMO.

Don't be afraid to ask questions, or to be considered "unpatriotic" for having an inquiring mind ... despite how the Right may react.

... gets to be rather tiresome after all too few pages. He seems to have some significant problems in suppressing his anger and his anti-American agenda almost seems to bleed through the print.

Bruce Cumming's long campaign against American "imperialism" has led him to embrace the Kim dynasty in North Korea. It is, afterall, the most virulent opponent of U.S. policy (though Iran is vying for that title, having more resources available to play at that game and weaker neighbors to bully). Like other academics during the Cold War and Maoist eras, Cummings had built foreign castles fit only to be viewed in the faculty lounge. He, of course, prefers to live in the United States where he can enjoy all the comforts offered as chair of the History Department at the University of Chicago. It is the wealth of "imperialist" states like ours that make career postions like his sustainable. Nothing like biting the hands that feed him!
