"The intervention by the United States in the Dominican Republic in 1965 has inspired several books, and this one is clearly the best." -- Review of Politics.

Drawing on nearly 150 personal interviews with individuals in the DominicanRepublic and the United States, on rare access to classified U.S. government documents, and on his own first-hand experiences during the crisis, Abraham F. Lowenthal rejects official, liberal, and radical accounts of the intervention. Instead, he explains it as the product of fundamental premises, of decision-making procedures, and of bureaucratic politics. In a new preface, Lowenthal discusses the Dominican intervention in its Cold War context and in comparative and theoretical perspective. As the issue of U.S. military action is raised anew -- from Iraq to Bosnia -- the lessons of the Dominican crisis will continue to command attention.

A balanced and insightful presentation of valuable historical data, and a very fine analysis of the process which produced the U.S. intervention, in which Lowenthal sheds much new light on developments in both Santiago and Washington. * American Political Science Review * The intervention by the United States in the Dominican Republic in 1965 has inspired several books, and this one is clearly the best. * Review of Politics *
