About this title:
Review: "One of the best works ever done on the Dominican Republic, this wonderful book goes a long way toward explaining not only the long-lived Trujillo dictatorship but subsequent Dominican social and political history as well. It is also a powerful critique of the simplistic demonizing of the Caribbean dictatorial model of politics attached to strongmen like Trujillo, Somoza, and Duvalier." - Lowell Gudmundson, Mount Holyoke College "One of the two or three best books on Latin American history that I have read in the past fifteen years. I have no doubt that it will stand the test of time as a fundamental text in the historiography of the Caribbean.... The book is close to a masterpiece. It is elegantly written, extensively documented, and superbly argued." - Jeffrey L. Gould, Indiana University
