Dr. Luca Trenta, an expert in US Foreign Policy and associate professor of International Relations at Swansea University, has released a new book titled "The President’s Kill List: Assassination in US Foreign Policy Since 1945," which delves into the history of the US government's involvement in assassinations and assassination attempts. The book reveals the various methods employed and the extent of presidential control over these decisions. Dr. Trenta challenges the perception that assassination is a practice of "rogue" and non-Western states, highlighting the prominent role it has played in US foreign policy since the early Cold War. The book, published by Edinburgh University Press, is now available for purchase.
