Ethics and US Foreign Policy
http://anglais.u-paris10.fr/spip.php?...

William Blum --abondonnant ses aspirations à devenir fonctionnaire du Ministère des Affaires Etrangères Américain car contre la guerre au Vietnam-- quitta le Département d'Etat en 1967. Son ouvrage sur la politique étrangère américaine, Les Guerres scélérates, fut édité une première fois en 1995, mis à jour constamment, et reçut un accueil extraordinaire au niveau international. Parmi ses autres ouvrages on distingue L'Etat voyou. Noam Chomsky désigna cet ouvrage comme étant de loin, le meilleur dans la matière. En janvier 2006, Ousama Ben Laden dans un enregistrement audiovisuel, exhortait les américains à lire cet ouvrage, afin de mieux comprendre leur ennemi. L'ouvrage de Blum fut traduit dans 17 langues . De 2001 à 2002 il fut journaliste du magazine The Ecologist qui est édité à Londres et distribué dans le monde entier. Il contribue mensuellement à la "Newsletter" du magazine: The Anti-Empire Report. Pour lire d'anciens numéros veuillez vous reporter à l'adresse du site web suivante : www.killinghope.org.

English version
William Blum left the State Department in 1967, abandoning his aspiration of becoming a Foreign Service Officer, because of his opposition to what the United States was doing in Vietnam. Mr. Blum's book on U.S. foreign policy, "Killing Hope: U.S. Military and CIA Interventions Since World War II", first published in 1995 and updated since, has received international acclaim. Noam Chomsky called it "Far and away the best book on the topic."
Amongst other books, he is also the author of: "Rogue State: A Guide to the World's Only Superpower". In January 2006, a tape from Osama bin Laden stated that "it would be useful" for Americans to read "Rogue State", apparently to gain a better understanding of their enemy. Blum's books have been translated into 17 foreign languages. During 2002-2003, Blum was a regular columnist for the magazine "The Ecologist", which is published in London and distributed globally. He currently sends out a monthly newsletter, the Anti-Empire Report. Previous issues of the report can be read at www.killinghope.org.
