Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ariel Armony focuses, in this study, on the role played by Argentina in the anti–Communist crusade in Central America. This systematic examination of Argentina’s involvement in the Central American drama of the late 1970s and early 1980s fine–tunes our knowledge of a major episode of the Cold War era.

Basing his study on exhaustive research in the United States, Argentina, and Nicaragua, Armony adroitly demolishes several key assumptions that have shaped the work of scholars in U.S. foreign policy, Argentine military politics, and Central American affairs.

Book News Annotation:

Shows how the perpetrators of the infamous "dirty war" in Argentina transferred their program of state terror to Central America and how the US endorsed this effort. Reveals that agents of the Argentine Army Intelligence Battalion molded the remnants of the brutal Nicaraguan National Guard into the Contras to fight the Sandinistas, and examines the Argentine base of operations in the US and Argentine activities in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. Includes a chronology.
