Synopsis

In Breaking the Real Axis of Evil, ambassador Mark Palmer has the gumption to argue what diplomats and political leaders dare not speak: that global peace will not be achieved until democracies replace the world's remaining dictatorships. We know that these dictators are at the root of terrorism and war. Under their stony gaze, millions have gone to their deaths, a great tidal wave of refugees has swept across the planet, and nations have been driven into poverty, famine, and despair. Drawing on over 25 years of extensive diplomatic experience, Ambassador Palmer asks us to embrace a bold vision of a world made safe by democracy. This is the story of the last 46 dictators, the strategy and tactics to oust them, and the need to empower the people of every nation to control their own destinies.

Mark Palmer, described by the New York Times as "the most active Western booster for economic and political liberalization," has an extensive record of government service, including four years as ambassador to Hungary, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Soviet Relations, and speech writer for three presidents and six secretaries of state, including chief speech writer for Henry Kissinger. One of the first venture capitalists into central and eastern Europe after the fall of the Berlin Wall, he has founded independent national television stations in six countries. Ambassador Palmer is active in promoting democracy, including as Vice Chairman of Freedom House, America's oldest human rights organization. He resides in Washington, DC.
