From the Publisher
Praise for prior editions:
"Understanding Central America remains the most comprehensive and indispensable textbook for courses on Central American politics. It offers a classic interpretation of the roots of civil wars and U.S. interventions in late twentieth-century Central America. This new edition has been reorganized and updated to address the region’s post-war issues of the twenty-first century, incorporating new scholarship relevant for analysis over the long run."
—Susanne Jonas, University of California, Santa Cruz
"A 'must read' for anyone interested in this complex and volatile area of the world."
—Mitchell A. Seligson, Vanderbilt University
"This volume is without doubt the best comprehensive examination of Central American politics and society. The book represents a good balance between an intellectually sophisticated analysis and a clear, concise approach readily accessible for undergraduate students."
—Orlando J. Perez, Central Michigan University; President, Midwest Association for Latin American Studies
