Product Description

Review

This story is much more thorough than the recent popularized account of the same events by Stephen Kinzer and Stephen Schlesinger ...

From the Back Cover

Using documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, recently opened archival collections, and interviews with actual participants, Immerman provides us with a definitive, powerfully written, and tension-packed account of the United States' clandestine operations in Guatemala and their consequences in Latin America today.

Format: Paperback
This is a useful book. It is very well researched, extraordinarily documented and tells you essentially anything you need to know about the CIA's plot to overthrow the Arbenz government in Guatemala. Unfortunately, the writing is so turgid and dull it's difficult not to nod off in the middle of a particularly gritty section of history. I applaud Immerman's effort and the completeness of his overall work, but he really should have taken on a jounrnalist to help him get through the rough spots and make the book actually readable.

HASH(0x8c7bda8c) out of 5 stars The harsh reality of American Policy of Intervention 26 May 1998
By Quincho97@aol.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The CIA in Guatemala offers the reader a compeling and shocking truth regarding the involevement of the American government in third-world country. Immerman relates in detail how the CIA and United Fruit magnates paint the guatemalan flag red and declare the country communist because they misinterpreted Agrarian Reform as a direct threat to "National Security." Boldly told, the reader finds himself amist a sea of revelations and a little confusion as the story unfolds, but it is only natural for a book of this nature. Immeran has done a wonderful job explaining foreign and political intervention about the american titan otherwise know as the "Gobierno Gringo." A marvelous account of past events are exposed after years of being witheld by the CIA as classified documents. I invoke anybody with an interest in politics, governmet intervention or just to inderstand how foreign interests dictate a small nation by placing puppet presidents to do their bidding to read this book.

HASH(0x8ca73450) out of 5 stars Factual, balanced account 28 July 2006
By Cranky - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a good, factual balanced account which brings to bear all the relevant facts and leaves out any ideological bias. It's also very well written and makes for an easy read.
HASH(0x8d01585c) out of 5 stars Great book about this topic 29 Jan. 2014
By Epic65000sr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Overall, I found this book to be largely interesting and it's independent examination of the roles of the Dulles brothers along with the other diplomatic players was particularly interesting.
