Bitter Fruit is a comprehensive and insightful account of the CIA operation to overthrow the democratically elected government of Jacobo Arbenz of Guatemala in 1954. First published in 1982, this book has become a classic, a textbook case of the relationship between the United States and the Third World. The authors make extensive use of U.S. government documents and interviews with former CIA and other officials. It is a warning of what happens when the United States abuses its power.

About the Author:

Stephen Schlesinger is Director of the World Policy Institute.

Stephen Kinzer is a Senior Fellow at the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown University.

John H. Coatsworth is Dean of the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University and former Director of the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies at Harvard University.

Review:
“Schlesinger and Kinzer have done the greatest service to truth and justice by presenting the untold story of the CIA coup.”Carlos Fuentes

“A special book. Impeccably researched and beautifully written, highlighting how much can still be learned from the 1950s experience. Perhaps some day history won't repeat itself.”Susan Eckstein, Boston University; Past President, Latin American Studies Association, Harvard University David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies

“The reappearance of this small classic is most welcome and important. It helps us understand the disasters that misshaped U.S. and Central American relations after 1954, especially into the 1980s and 1990s.”Walter LaFeber, Cornell University

“This work was and still is the most riveting account of the U.S. intervention in Guatemala in 1954, and is a testimony to the twisted logic of those immersed in a culture which sees all popular political movements as a threat whether in Guatemala or the rest of the world.”Jennifer Schirmer
