Author: Karl Bermann
Publisher: Boston : South End Press, ©1986.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Few people in the US are aware that we have intervened more persistently in Nicaragua than in any other country in the hemisphere except Mexico and Cuba, whose geographic proximity to the United States has historically put them in a special category. Today's confrontation between the US and Nicaragua did not begin in 1979; it is but the latest chapter in a story that began more than 130 years ago. - p. [vii].

Abstract:

Few people in the US are aware that we have intervened more persistently in Nicaragua than in any other country in the hemisphere except Mexico and Cuba, whose geographic proximity to the United States has historically put them in a special category. Today's confrontation between the US and Nicaragua did not begin in 1979; it is but the latest chapter in a story that began more than 130 years ago. - p. [vii].
