A personal account of the overthrow of the Nicaraguan dictator by Lawrence Pezzullo, the newly-appointed ambassador of a US government that tried and failed to keep him in power against the anger of the Nicaraguan people. He tells of negotiating with the stubborn despot and the triumphant rebel Sandinistas, and wonders why the US was so concerned and so ineffectual. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
