Overview

Making use of recently declassified documents as well as interviews with involved CIA agents and Cuban exiles, Bohning (a former Latin America editor for the Miami Herald) describes the US government's failed covert war against the regime of Fidel Castro during the Kennedy and Johnson administrations. He examines the policy makers reasoning as they planned the anti-Castro activities and describes how it translated into assassination plots, sabotage, and other attempts at political and economic destabilization that were ultimately undermining of US interests.
