Central America - it's everywhere today, from the nightly news to the movie marquees. Bu do you know what really went on there - how the United States got in and what happened when it did? From San Juan Hill to Contragate, its been a century of charged encounters with our southern neighbors. Using official records, newspaper stories, travels' accounts, ads, and song lyrics, George Black blasts away at the prevailing image of comeic-opera banana republics rescued by exported American goodwill, technology, and counterrevolution, and shows us, concisely and clearly, exactly how we got into today's mess. A hundred and fifty unexpected images - news photographs, cartoons, movie stills, tgravel brochures - focus the key events in a new light. Teddy Roosevelt peers out from his Panamanian steam shovel. Eugene Hasenfus staggers from his plane wreck in Nicaragua. The Peace Corps is born; Che dies. The Marines come, go, and then come back. Somoza, Carmen Miranda, Castro,; the Bay of Pigs, Grenada, the contras - piece by piece, Black connects them into a full picture of the crucial role our "backyard" has played in our own history - and we in its. Includes an Index.
