    Detailed exploration of how the US became involved in, and ultimately almost destroyed, British Guiana. I had not been really aware of British Guiana before and this book ably demonstrated the extents that America would go to to keep even the idea of communism out of the Western Hemisphere, their supposed sphere of influence. This book seems to help illustrate a point that America foreign policy forgets often, and usually I troubling ways; actions have consequences.
