Turning the Tide: U.S. Intervention in Central America and the Struggle for Peace
The author, well-known for his criticism of the U.S. government's Vietnam policy in the 1960s, here turns his attention to Central America. The text wavers between a political broadside and a scholarly analysis of our policy towards the region in the larger context of our Cold War posture and conservative tendencies. Other sources have already better documented the inconsistencies between our purported values and policies abroad, and our support of human rights abuses. The Central American focus is diffused by the emphasis on domestic political conservatism, a connection not particularly well drawn.
