Cancelled - Dana Frank

A professor of history emerita at the University of California, Santa Cruz, with a long, distinguished record of teaching and books on labor and political history, both the U.S. and Latin America, Dana Frank makes this welcome return for a timely book on a place that is having an impact on the U.S., though precious little attention is being given, Honduras. This she does in The Long Honduran Night: Resistance, Terror, and the United States in the Aftermath of the Coup (Haymarket).

"A historian and activist offers a damning indictment of corruption, human rights violations, and failed U.S. policy in Honduras. Frank offers a heady mix of personal experience, historical context, and contemporary condemnation of the chain of events that brought Honduras into a state of chaos … An important, little-known history that offers much truth and little reconciliation." −Kirkus Reviews.

“Dana Frank has written a searing portrait of a nation in crisis, a book that is startling, enraging, and humane all at once. Her most important accomplishment is never losing sight of the hardships and treachery that ordinary Hondurans have had to endure these last several years, nor the dignity with which they have survived it all.” −Daniel Alarcón
