The author seems to find US scheming to extend its influence in Central America under every tree, with collusion of greedy and unprincipled Costa Ricans. I think this line of reasoning is far-fetched. The book was written many years ago, so I suppose some generosity is in order. Still, it's so far off the mark it's difficult to see much positive.

For such a scholarly book, the text is more accessible than one might think. I had to read it for a class on the CIA in college, and enjoyed the hell out of it!
Just a note, I have also traveled to Costa Rica , and one of the VERY few guidebooks to touch on this period of Costa Rica and it's impact today is "Costa Rica: The Last Country The Gods Made." Written in 1994, it sort of takes up where Honey left off.

It was extremely detailed, I mean EXTREMELY detailed. It covered maybe six or seven actual events in a good 560-some pages. It had a wellspring of good information, and a wellspring of really unnecessary information. It was longer than it should have been.
