I’ve been extolling the value of the book by Paul Dix and Pam Fitzpatrick, Nicaragua: Surviving the Legacy of U.S. Policy and now it appears as though others are beginning to take notice, as well. The following blurb was offered by Bill Moyers, one who would certainly be in a position to judge the merits of such a publication. I said it before: this book is worthwhile reading for every student of history, or of U.S. policy past, present and future.
“What an impressive book! I was deeply touched to read it and to be carried back to that time and those cruel events of the war in Nicaragua. They would have disappeared into the amnesia hole of history except for efforts like yours. You have done the people who suffered and died a profound service.”
Not to mention the service to those U.S. citizens who care about our foreign policy positions….
