MEDIA REVIEWS
"Longley makes a valuable contribution to the historiography of US-CentralAmerican relations. His utilisation of primary sources in both the USA and CostaRica add credibility to the thesis that Washington did not always have its waysouth of the Rio Grande River and that small countries on the periphery arecapable of pursuing independent foreign policies vis-a-vis Washington." Journal of Latin American Studies
"
this is an excellent book which deserves a wide readership and should be read by all students of Latin American and interamerican affairs. The Americas"
