A stock figure of modern political literature is the Latin American dictator, a beribboned generalissimo, overweight, corrupt, propping up rich landlords who live in luxury on the back of impoverished peasants, using the language of anti-Communism to justify crushing any possibility of reform. Clearly, such people were seen as villains.

The Tragedy of the Middle East
Price: Free! Words: 111,440. Language: English. Published: February 13, 2013. Categories: Essay » Political, Nonfiction » Politics & Current Affairs » World politics
The title was chosen in great sincerity because the theme here is to explain how the region’s modern history really is a tragedy.’ Terrible mistakes were made; the wrong roads were chosen.
