Building on Schmitz's earlier work, Thank God They're On Our Side, this is an examination of American policy toward right-wing dictatorships from the 1960s to the end of the Cold War.

After 1965, however, American support for these regimes became a contested issue. The Vietnam War served to undercut the logic and rationale of supporting right-wing dictators.

In his careful study of the collapse of the Cold War consensus since 1965, David Schmitz challenges the notion that this violation of core American values actually served . Friendly tyrants resisted necessary reforms and destroyed the political center, while the 'realist' policy of coddling dictators brought a backlash among foreign populations with long memories. A crucial insight into the uncertain status of America in the world today. Max Paul Friedman, Florida State University.

Building on Schmitz's earlier work, Thank God They're on our Side, this is an examination of American policy toward right-wing dictatorships from the 1960s to the end of the Cold War. During the 1920s American leaders developed a policy of supporting authoritarian regimes because they were seen as stable, anti-communist, and capitalist. After 1965, however, American support for these regimes became a contested issue. The Vietnam War served to undercut the logic and rationale of supporting right-wing dictators. By systematically examining US support for right-wing dictatorships in Africa, Latin America, Europe, and Asia, and bringing together these disparate episodes, this book examines the persistence of older attitudes, the new debates brought about by the Vietnam War, and the efforts to bring about changes and an end to automatic US support for authoritarian regimes.
Comments to eBook The United States and Right-Wing Dictatorships, 1965-1989
Felolak
This is a continuation of the author's first survey of US relations with rightist dictatorships from the 1920s to 1965. As with the previous volume Schmitz provides a good and impartial overview of the ideology and motivations of these relationships. Especially noteworthy is his balanced treatment of Jimmy Carter's human rights policy, and the attempted reversal by Ronald Reagan to the blackest days of reactionary patronage. Ironically, it was the legacy of Jimmy Carter which laid the foundation for the cold war's end, and of the "democratization" policies Reagan actually pursued in his second term that transformed the world.

As for the first reviewer from Iran, I can only wonder what planet he really hails from, and fear for the future of that country's journey to democracy if he represents its movement.

In my opinion this book constitutes an objective analysis of american foreign policy torward right-wing dictatorships, from Suharto's Indonesia to Reza Pahlevi's Iran, from Somoza's Nicaragua to Chile, El Salvador, the Congo end South Africa apartheid regime.
The perspective Schmitz adopted is very useful to understand how american foreing policy has developed through different decades, precidencies, administrations. I found particularly interesting those pages dedicated to the relation between the President and the Congress.
Vertokini
First of all, as an Iranian, I find the cover photo of the book so offensive and misleading. The Shah of Iran was in no way a dictator and in no way a right winger. And it is just not right for the author to try to link the anti-Communist policies of the United States during the cold war to its support for some of the autocrats around the world. So this is just another partisan book/author and unfortunately the book has zero or little information value.
