American Policy in Nicaragua
American Policy in Nicaragua
By Henry L. Stimson
Scribner, 1927, 129 pp

This may be taken as the first systematic account of the government view in the Nicaraguan question. The author, who went to Nicaragua in March, 1927, as the President's special representative, and who was responsible for the agreement with the warring factions, here gives a sketch of the historical background of the problem, stressing the importance of Nicaragua in the foreign policy of the United States, and recounting in some detail his negotiations with the rival parties. The book is written in a dispassionate way, and throws light on some obscure and intricate phases of the crisis.
