Prelude to Infamy
The CIA Cold War in Latin American and the Death of the Monroe Doctrine
by Matthew Schweitzer
The importance of understanding the legacy of the United States' foreign policy across the world has never been more important, as greater numbers of Americans ask themselves, "why do they hate us?"This volume seeks to answer this question through an interdependent study of the Central Intelligence Agency intervention in Guatemala (1952-1954), shedding light on the complex foundations of global opinion towards the United States. It is ultimately the responsibility of a 'moral historian' to understand the roots of modern issues and problems. This study attempts to do just that.
