The United States government has a long history of coup making around the world. With our guest, author and former New York Times Bureau Chief Stephen Kinzer, we take a detailed look at the American overthrow of governments in Iran 1953, Guatemala 1954 and Chile 1973. In examining these coups, we learn the tried and true techniques employed by governments to destabilize and bring down foreign governments. We, also, examine the corporate interests which typically provide the impetus for coups.

Mr. Kinzer is the author of "Overthrow", a history of 14 American coups ranging from Hawaii in 1893 to Iraq in 2003. He is, also, the author of "All the Shah's Men, An American Coup and the Roots of Middle East Terror" and co-author of "Bitter Fruit: The Untold Story of the American Coup in Guatemala."
