Library Journal - Library Journal
Recent works like John Prados's Presidents' Secret Wars ( LJ 2/15/87) and Gregory Treverton's Covert Action (Basic Books, 1987) show that ``the secret government'' is no aberration, as the report of the Iran-contra hearings suggested, but an entrenched, pervasive, institutionalized way of life. CBS news producer Cockburn provides even more evidence in this fascinating and troubling account of the covert war in Central America and its connection to the drug trade. She takes up where the Iran-contra hearings left off, or more precisely did not choose to tread, and traces the story of this ugly war from the mud and blood of the La Penca killings to the highest corridors of power in Washington. For specialists and informed readers. Henry Steck, SUNY Coll. at Cortland
