Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador: Central American Neighbors and U.S. Relations


Phillip Buckley (Editor)

Series: Latin American Political, Economic, and Security Issues

Since the 1980s, Guatemala, the most populous country in Central America with a population just over 14 million, has continued its transition from a centuries-long tradition of mostly autocratic rule toward a representative government. A democratic constitution was adopted in 1985, and a democratically elected government was inaugurated in 1986.

A 36-year civil war that ravaged Guatemala ended in 1996. This book provides an overview of Guatemala’s current political and economic conditions, relations with the United States, and several issues likely to figure in future decisions by Congress and the Administration regarding Guatemala. It also discusses the U.S. relations with Honduras, and El Salvador. (Imprint: Novinka)
