8. Yes, and not only excellent credentials, but his approach to the subject is so refreshing
Most historians report the facts, or rather the facts as they are promulgated by our leaders -- at least to some substantial extent. For example, President so and so sent in the Marines to "restore order", yada yada yada.

Kinzer on the other hand goes to great lengths to explain the circumstances and meaning and consequences behind the actions. I find that so refreshing and much more meaningful than most historical accounts. It's like the difference between watching Keith Olbermann or Bill Moyers and ... take your pick of any number of today's talking heads.
