Using the theoretical approaches of dependency, hegemony, and liberal developmentalism, Streeter (history, McMaster U., Hamilton, Ontario) details how the Eisenhower administration propped up anti-Communist dictatorships that protected US economic and strategic interests in the Central American country. The result was increased poverty, deepened economic and political corruption, and further dependence on the US. When civilians protested the US State Department repressed dissidents, censored the media, undermined democracy, and fostered a civil war that killed over 200,000.
