A critique of U.S. Cold War policy in Latin America

The Killing Zone: The United States Wages Cold War in Latin AmericaThe Killing Zone: The United States Wages Cold War in Latin America by Stephen G. Rabe

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Pros: lots of information about the period, a lot of analysis of policymaking, made a strong argument

Cons: could have been better organized, bordered on polemical and left me wanting to read a different perspective on US Latin America during the Cold War

Overall, I learned a lot, and I will probably go back to it if I teach Latin American history again.
