Beschreibung:

Based solidly on the diplomatic record, the work takes a strong revisionist stance, arguing against the commonly accepted view that the United States created the Somoza regime and kept the first Somoza in power as its surrogate.
A US Policy Dilemma - Conflict Between Non-Intervention and the Preservation of Constitutional Government; The Struggle for Constitutionalism in Nicaragua; Somoza and Roosesvelt (I); Somoza and Roosevelt (II); Somoza and Washington - The War Years; Discord in US-Nicaraguan Relations; From Welles to Braden - Policy Changes Affecting US Relations with the Somoza Regime; The United States Moves to End the Somoza Regime - 1945 to the 1947 Elections; The United States Attempts to Oust Somoza - The Year of Non-Recognition, May 1947-May 1948; US Relations with the Somoza Regime - The Last Years, 1948 to 1956; The Myth of Somoza as Washington's Favourite Son - A Conclusion.
Examines the relationship between the United States and Nicaragua during the Somoza regime. Clark argues that the United States fought for democracy in Nicaragua, but was defeated by Somoza's political skills and, later, by Cold War obsessions which overtook Latin-American policymakers.
