Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Much academic research in the 1980s focused on the U.S. role in supporting repressive, antiguerrilla military governments in Central America, with only a hint of Argentina's influence in the region. This important, original work clearly establishes in detail the influence of the Argentina "dirty war" strategies, their linkages to the Central American death squads and the U.S. intelligence operatives, and their consequences for human rights in the region. Armony, an Argentine who worked as a journalist in Buenos Aires and is now a Ph.D. candidate in political science at the University of Pittsburgh, illustrates the level of collaboration among these groups, the continuing influence of the Argentine intelligence community on antiguerrilla tactics (as seen in Mexico's 1994 Chiapas uprising), and their threat to emerging democratization. Highly recommended.?Roderic A. Camp, Latin American Ctr., Tulane Univ., New Orleans

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book will tell you all the secret relationships between the US & Argentine governments before the Argentine recovery of the Malvinas (to the British: Falklands) Islands. It tells a story of secret 'favors' being exchanged in Central America between the Reagan Administration and the military dictators of my nation. It comes complete with data showing how the changes in the US budget 'forced' the US government to seek assistance from Argentina. And how the Argentines put their experience, in the repression of dissent within Argentina, to work for their American "masters" objectives. I personally think that the book shows how the unaware American People are capable of sustaining a government that overseas undoes all its' domestic policies and steps on the American ideals of freedom, equality and legality (while implying that that is the only way to support those ideals).
