The turmoil in Central America is sketched here in essays covering the region generally, U.S. reactions, and individual studies of developments in El Salvador, Nicaragua, Guatemala and Honduras. There is an epilogue by Gunter Grass comparing the Sandinistas and the Solidarity movement in Poland in strongly anti-U.S. terms, a viewpoint that is echoed elsewhere in the book.
