Review

James Siekmeier has produced a model of scholarship in this concise analysis of U.S. relations with Bolivia from the Revolution of 1952 to the present. With superb multi-archival research in Bolivia and the United States, Siekmeier demonstrates the multifaceted nature of the bilateral relationship. The United States deployed economic and military aid to contain the Bolivian Revolution, even as Bolivian officials skillfully channeled the aid for their own purposes. Siekmeier's fascinating discussions of the joint campaign to capture Ernesto 'Che' Guevara in 1967 and Bolivia's decision to expel the Peace Corps in 1971 further reveal the complex nature of U.S. interactions with Bolivia. --Stephen G. Rabe, University of Texas at Dallas
