Two Brothers Who Shaped Post-WWII U.S. Foreign Policy

Source: The Washington Post


On today’s show, host Mitch Jeserich interviews Stephen Kinzer, national cultural correspondent for the New York Times, about his book “The Brothers: John Foster Dulles, Allen Dulles, and Their Secret World War.” The brothers controlled both the overt and covert operations of U.S. foreign policy in the 50’s: one was Secretary of State and one was the head of the CIA. Jeserich and Kinzer discuss these influential but often forgotten figures.
