An American Company: The Tragedy of United Fruit

By Thomas P. McCann

Crown, 1976, 244 pp.

The history of the legendary Frutera, with emphasis on the disasters that followed its acquisition by the Eli Black interests, is recounted by a former Vice President for Public Relations of the trouble-plagued two-billion dollar enterprise. The manner of telling is lively, intimate and candid.
