I’ve been reading Ron Pauls A Foreign Policy of Freedom: ‘Peace, Commerce, and Honest Friendship’, which is basically a collection of all his speeches and essays on war and foreign intervention. It’s great, but I’m real interested in learning more on the history of our foreign interventions (and domestic affairs as well) since the first Bush came to office. I’m interested in things like NAFTA, Desert Storm and following, Bosnia, Kosovo, etc… The only things I really remember from those years are Monica Lewinsky and my cousin getting in trouble for calling my sister “Mrs. Clinton!” as an insult when she was being bossy.
I would recommend the chapters on Bosnia and Kosovo in my book 33 Questions About American History You’re Not Supposed to Ask, and if you want to read further, you can refer to my endnotes. As for Desert Storm, there’s a lengthy interview with Jude Wanniski on the subject in one of the two Neo-Conned volumes, and it really challenges the way you think about that subject.
