John A. Booth, Christine J. Wade, and Thomas W. Walker explore the origins and development of the regions political conflicts and its efforts to resolve them. Covering the regions political and economic development from the early 1800s onward, the authors provide a background for understanding Central Americas rebellion and regime change of the past forty years. This revised edition brings the Central American story up to date, with special emphasis on globalization, evolving public opinion, progress toward democratic consolidation, and the relationship between Central America and the United States under the Obama administration, and includes analysis of the 2009 Honduran coup détat. A useful introduction to the region and a model for how to convey its complexities in language readers will comprehend, Understanding Central America stands out as a must-have resource.
