Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Costa Rica are five small countries, and yet no other part of the world is more important to the US.
This book explains the history of US/Central American relations, explaining why these countries have remained so overpopulated, illiterate and violent; and why US government notions of economic and military security combine to keep in place a system of Central American dependency. This second edition is updated to include new material covering the Reagan and Bush years, and the Iran/Contra affair.

My second book on Central America and it was not a dissappointment. I highly recommend this book for people who think they understand cold war history and politics. This book raises all kinds of questions.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
