From the Inside Flap:

The Militarization of Culture in the Dominican Republic, from the Captains General to General Trujillo traces the interaction of the military and the civilian population, showing the many ways in which the military ethos has permeated Dominican culture. Valentina Peguero categorizes the Dominican military before 1930 as either protectionists, facilitators, or self-servers, a framework that sheds new light on Dominican civil-military relations.

Peguero synchronizes the history of the Dominican military and that of Dominican society from her dual perspectives as a native of the Dominican Republic during the Trujillo era and as a historian who is well acquainted with the country’s history and literature. She shows how the brutal Trujillo dictatorship created La Nueva Patria (The New Fatherland) to promote a new order and present the military as a model for society, imposing military principles on the civil society and mixing military culture with popular culture to reshape the nation. Structured around interviews with former military personnel, scholars, and politicians, this study brings to life documentary information and presents a poignant narrative that describes the unintended consequences that resulted when Trujillo valued arming the nation above meeting the needs of the populace.

Valentina Peguero is a professor of history at the University of Wisconsin–Stevens Point. She is the author of two books in Spanish, including Visión General de la Historia Dominicana (with Danilo de los Santos).

From the Back Cover:

Some men were digging for gold..
Some men were digging graves.
And someone was getting away with murder...

You went through a rugged paradise to reach Virginia City, Montana. Then you came to hell: a ramshackle town where fifty-six men have been killed, dozens of stagecoaches have been robbed, and a fanatical vigilante leader is threatening to blow the town sky-high. In Denver, Luke Starbuck was hired to stop the epidemic. But when he gets to Virginia City, he finds a tough sheriff already hanging outlaws as fast as he can, a mystery swirling around a young woman's murder, and a whole lot of people with blood on their hands. Working undercover with the help of a beautiful stage star, Starbuck soon discovers that the chaos of Virginia City is really a well-oiled and murderous crime machine. To take it apart, the West's most legendary detective has to find the Judas lurking behind every violent crime-and then he has to kill him...
