A new book describes how American leaders, claiming a threat to the U.S., as well as to democracy and human rights, intervened overseas in a move many saw as imperialistic. But NYU historian Greg Grandin is not writing about the Iraq war -- he's describing the 1980s, when Washington took a very active role in trying to shape Central America. Indeed, Grandin says the Reagan era's foreign policy was only one episode in a long history of U.S. imperialism in the nations to our south. His book is called "Empire's Workshop."
