Banana Republican by Eric Rauchway

A rollicking, outrageous, and altogether brilliant perversion of known facts—and a much beloved fiction—Banana Republican sends the crass and hilarious Tom Buchanan through America’s infamously mismanaged intervention in Nicaragua in the early twentieth century. Author and historian Eric Rauchway makes the 1920s feel frighteningly familiar: an age of unbounded capitalism, imperialism, nascent globalization, socially acceptable racism, and careless economic policy. This smart, satirical send-up of greed, Gatsby, and gusto parades the American dream in all its ragged glory.
