Politics in Central America
Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua; Revised Edition
A clear and balanced presentation of the dilemmas associated with each of the four nations. A skillful cultural framework is provided in the first chapter, which serves as an overview. "Foreign Affairs"
A fine study. Anderson's reputation as a scholar and a Latin Americanist will be enhanced when this study has time to make its imprint. "American Political Science Review"
This new volume provides an up-to-date survey of the Central American states involved in the current conflict. While several studies of the individual countries in the region have appeared, there have been no recent attempts at a synthesis of the problems of the area. "Politics in Central America" fills this gap, analyzing the roots of the current crisis and suggesting solutions to the problems of the region. Business people, politicians and the general public who are concerned with the situation in Central America and who are seeking explanations and solutions will find this volume well worth reading.
