U.S. Intervention in British Guiana: A Cold War Story
University of North Carolina Press
By Stephen G. Rabe '70
February 23, 2006
This is the first published account of the operation and, though the CIA refuses to confirm or deny involvement, Rabe is highly critical of what he argues was their action. With U.S. Intervention, Rabe creates what the University of North Carolina Press calls, “a needed corrective to interpretations that depict the Cold War as an unsullied U.S. triumph.”
Stephen G. Rabe is a professor of history at the University of Texas at Dallas and has written extensively on the United States and its anticommunist involvements in Latin America since World War II.
