Export Agriculture and the Crisis in Central America

Export Agriculture and the Crisis in Central America Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Before social unrest shook the region in the 1970s, Central America experienced more than a decade of rapid export growth by adding cotton and beef to the traditional coffee and bananas. Williams shows how the rapid growth contributed to the present social and political crisis, examines the causes of the export boom and who benefited from it, and shows the impact of the boom on land use, the ecology, and the conditions of life in the rural areas.
