The origins of overthrow, how emotional frustration shapes US regime change interventions, Payam Ghalehdar

Summary
In 'The Origins of Overthrow', Payam Ghalehdar offers a novel explanation for a puzzling phenomenon in US foreign policy: forcible regime change. The 2003 invasion of Iraq shows that the costs of regime change in terms of blood and treasure can far exceed its benefits for the United States. Yet, the US has repeatedly engaged in overthrowing foreign leaders and regimes. This book explains why and argues that the emotional state of US presidents sheds light on US regime change decisions
