influence in Central America by fueling guerrilla wars. G. W. Sand examines key Sandinista, Castroite, and Guatemalan Communist documents and reveals how Soviet military power is being used by the Sandinistas and their Cuban allies to consolidate power, threaten Nicaraguas neighbors, and ultimately revolutionize all of Central America.

This, Sand claims, threatens the future of the United States itself.The foreword by former ambassador to Costa Rica, Lewis A. Tambs, chillingly describes the unprecedented threat to U.S. security by Soviet satellization of Central American countries. Sand begins the book with a detailed review of Soviet aims and strategies in the Americas. The book offers a history of the Sandinista movement as well as Soviet foreign policy toward Nicaragua.

Further chapters explore the Sandinistas record with regard to human rights and the current civil war in Nicaragua. Sands detailed reading of Central American Communist documents reveals Soviet aims for the region. Finally, the book offers a possible strategy for averting Moscows incursion into the United States sphere of influence. Students of political science and scholars of Central America, or anyone interested in this volatile region, will find Soviet Aims in Central America provocative reading.
