Crisis in Central America. 1, The Yankee years [videorecording].
- Points out that from the Spanish-American War in 1898 to the 1950's, the pre-eminence of the United States in Central America and the Caribbean was never successfully challenged. Looks at these turbulent years, from the glory days of building the Panama Canal, through the early U.S. Marine occupation of Nicaragua, to the Cold War crisis in Guatemala in 1954 that resulted in the CIA's first "covert" war in the region.
