Five Sessions

Anyone wanting to know why the United States is hated across much of the world need

look no farther than the book, The Brothers. In this course we will discuss this riveting

chronicle of government-sanctioned murder, casual elimination of “inconvenient” regimes,

relentless prioritization of American corporate interests and cynical arrogance on

the part of two men who were once among the most powerful in the world.

Suggested Reading: The Brothers: John Foster Dulles, Allen Dulles, and Their Secret

World War by Stephen Kinzer
