In the 1980s—during the twilight of the Cold War—fascism enjoyed a global resurgence after its defeat some forty years earlier. In Iraq, Saddam Hussein and his nationalist party were busy building a totalitarian ethnostate with the all-too-familiar tools of invasion and genocide. Latin America suffered under the yoke of authoritarian military juntas and their right wing death squads intent on beating back democracy and liberalism across the region. Brutal warlords and despots ran rampant in Africa, and Pol Pot was chomping at the bit to retake power and resume his campaign of enslavement and mass executions. Although divided by geography and ideological aims, these deplorable actors made up a global web of reactionary politics—connected by the man who sat at its center: Ronald W. Reagan. Together with his cohort of far right foreign policy practitioners, Reagan provided extensive material, diplomatic, and informational support to the worst gangsters and murderers the third world had to offer. The Reagan Casualties takes readers on a tour through the torture chambers and decimated villages these policies produced, and details the suffering inflicted upon innocent civilians across the globe.
