Synopsis: Honduras occupies a strategic geographic position in Central America. Having served as ambassador to Honduras during both the Carter and Reagan administrations, Jack R. Binns offers a unique perspective on the pivotal period from 1980 through 1981, as the country moved from a relatively benign military dictatorship to a democratic constitutional leadership. Using classified correspondence, Binns covers the attack on the U.S. Embassy, the deception laid upon the Embassy and State Department by the Central Intelligence Agency over Sandinista-Contra policy, the flood of Salvadoran refugees, economic and human rights conditions, and the collapse of a military coup. He discusses the consequences of an inadequate U.S. policy formulation in Central America: the effort to overthrow the Sandinista regime was a costly failure, U.S. support of the Salvadoran military enlarged the conflict, and U.S. activity in Honduras encouraged human rights abuses.

About the Author: Retired from the Foreign Service, Jack R. Binns lives in Tucson, Arizona. His articles have appeared in such publications as The Arizona Daily Star, The Baltimore Sun and Foreign Service Journal.

BRAND NEW Laminated Full-Size Softcover -407pp - 16 photos, map, notes, appendices, bibliography, index - Honduras occupies a strategic geographic position in Central America. As former ambassador to Honduras during a pivotal period in both the Carter and Reagan administrations, Jack R. Binns offers a unique perspective on the period from 1980 through 1981. Written as a chronologically structured, heavily annotated diary, this work focuses on developments as the country moved from a relatively benign military dictatorship to a democratic constitutional leadership, crediting the Honduran people for this accomplishment despite adverse effects. Using classified Embassy and Department of State correspondence, Binns covers the attack on the U.S. Embassy, the deception laid upon the Embassy and State Department by the Central Intelligence Agency over Sandinista-Contra policy, the flood of Salvadoran refugees into the country, the Honduran economic situation and collapse of a military coup, and Honduran human rights violations. The author shares his views on the consequences of an inadequate U.S. policy formulation in Central America: the U.S. effort to overthrow the Sandinista regime was a costly failure, U.S. support of the Salvadoran military enlarged rather than reduced the conflict, and U.S. activity in Honduras encouraged human rights abuses.
