In the end, there was insurmountable with rare exceptions inertia to even condemning acts of genocide.
Power is critical of previous American presidents particularly hard on G. Bush I and Bill Clinton for their inaction, but she is balanced in her lambast.
She provides sufficient details on the political climate and internal debates in the various administrations that provides contexts in which the decisions to not intervene took place. She frequently concedes ground to counterpoints, such as the idea that action might actually exacerbate genocide.
This adds depth to her book and gives her credibility as a realist rather than some hippie liberal. Powers asserts numerous times that the US was concerned that "rogue" states might bring up genocide charges against the US, but she did not elaborate on the validity of these claims.
The US was complicit in and contributed to genocide carried out by Pinochet in Chile and the military in Guatemala, among others. Also, US treatment of Native Americans could also be counted as a genocide. None of these accounts were mentioned.
These inconvenient aspects of our history is crucial in understanding why the United States dragged its feet on ratifying the UN treaty on genocide and why the US voted against the creation of the International Criminal Court, a permanent tribunal to prosecute genocide and other crimes against humanity.
These details are important int understanding why the United States has been so inept in responding to these human atrocities, but were not covered.
