9781558760370: Henry L. Stimson's American Policy in Nicaragua: The Lasting Legacy

Perhaps the most illuminating document ever published on American foreign policy in Nicaragua, this book represents a full spectrum of critical perspectives. Henry Stimson's memoirs as a special envoy to Nicaragua, first published in 1927, are reprinted here in their entirety. Also included is the full text of the U.S. State Department's "The United States and Nicaragua: A Survey of the Relations from 1909 to 1932." Then, as now, we read about a president named Chamorro, a revolutionary named Sandino, and U.S.-supervised elections. Stimson was commissioned to bring peace and democracy to Nicaragua; most Nicaraguans still think he brought only the Marines and the Somoza dictatorship

Review:

" . . . The only role assumed by our Government forces was that of a policeman. . . . But the lot of a policeman on foreign soil is not a happy one." -- New York Times on the results of Stimson's mission

"It was a disastrous mistake to underestimate Sandino and a catastrophic mistake to be taken in by Somoza." -- Alan Brinkley quoting the Stimson biographer, Hodgson.

"The documents here are rich and relevant . . . The volume deserves a place in any library with Latin American studies materials." -- Canadian Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Studies
