Bitter Fruit - The story of the American coup in Guatemala, Stephen Schlesinger and Stephen Kinzer

The tragic account of US involvement (particularly of the CIA and the United Fruit Company) in the downfall of Guatemala's democratically elected government in the '50s. Clear, concise and often hard-hitting, it provides a sobering model for a number of brutal civil wars and dictatorships that raged across the continent during the Cold War era.
