Summary
"Although the author, a former Special Forces soldier stationed in Latin America, admits to a 'subjective' and even 'personal' interest in Central America, he attempts to apply a series of fairly esoteric sociological theories to Central American crisis. Ultimately not a major contribution"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 57.
