Summary:  Exclusive interviews with author of 'The Brothers' Stephen Kinzer and Oregon author/publisher Kris Millegan
Credits: Many of the Baby Boom generation, especially those born before 1950, remember the early years of the Cold War as a time of fear and seemingly unceasing confrontation between the west and the forces of “godless communism”, primarily the USSR, but also it's acolytes China and Cuba. The common wisdom of the time was that if the west allowed any expansion, anywhere, of communism, the surrounding countries, like dominoes, would also fall, one by one, until the goal of communist world domination was met.

In his new book The Brothers, Stephen Kinzer makes a convincing argument that two American brothers, John Foster Dulles and Allen Dulles, were in large measure responsible for promoting that dogma. And worse, they were in positions to both benefit personally and to direct activities that not only heightened global Cold War tensions but also earned the United States, among a number of countries, enmity and dishonor, the effects of which are still being dealt with today.

The subtitle of Kinzer's book is John Foster Dulles, Allen Dulles, and Their Secret World War. The secret war refers to the brothers' long-running combination of overt and covert activities aimed at preventing or overthrowing Communist governments in various parts of the world.
