Summary: LaFeber traces U.S.-Central American relations over the past 150 years.He contends that the current revolutionary climate in Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and El Salvador is not simply attributable to Soviet or Cuban mischief making, but instead is largely the outcome of long-standing U.S. policy.
