Greg Grandin

This week we look at Empire and Resistance in Latin America, and beyond. Professor and author Greg Grandin talks about the enduring influence of Henry Kissinger's bloody and brutal foreign policy. Grandin has been examining Empire in all its forms across seven books, including his latest, "Kissinger’s Shadow," out this month. A professor of history at NYU and a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Grandin writes about U.S. foreign policy, Latin America, genocide, and human rights. He also served as a consultant to the United Nations truth commission on Guatemala. Later in the show, we look at an excerpt from a new film about the 2009 U.S.-supported coup in Honduras. Also, watch Laura's analysis on war criminals in Guatemala and in the U.S.

Grassroots activists are determined that this time will be different, and they're not just hoping or lobbying for a change - they're looking very closely at government.
