During the 1950s, when the Cold War was at its peak, two immensely powerful brothers --- secretary of state John Foster Dulles and CIA director Allen Dulles --- led the United States into a series of foreign adventures whose effects are still shaking the world. In this book, Stephen Kinzer places their extraordinary lives against the background of American culture and history and explores how the story and self-view of the Dulles brothers parallels that of the United States and its place in the world.
