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
