Central America: A Nation Divided

By Ralph Lee Woodward, Jr.
Oxford University Press, 1976
344 pp. $12.95

The isthmus is presented here in its fragmented complexity, from pre-Hispanic days to the "futbol" war of 1969. The grand theme is union and disunion, and the way of the former is difficult: "The hopes of Francisco Morazán and Salvador Mendieta for a single Central American republic do not appear any nearer fruition than when those men struggled for union."
