For more than half a century the United Fruit Company has been the target of innumerable books and articles highly critical of its banana operations in Central America, the Caribbean, Panama and Colombia. U.S. and Latin American scholars have repeatedly accused the Company of nefarious practices that were detrimental to the development of the countries in which it operated.Nowhere has the United Fruit Company (today's Chiquita Brands International) been more criticized than in Guatemala, where, among many other charges, it has been frequently alleged that President Jacobo Arbenz's expropriation of thousands of acres of UFCO's landholdings triggered the U.S. government's 1954 coup against the most progressive government in Guatemala's chaotic and violent history. This book, which puts on the record most of the charges that have been made about the United Fruit Company's sixty-six years in Guatemala (1906-1972), provides a careful analysis of these allegations. While a number of them are certainly valid, an objective study of these indictments demonstrates that United Fruit's role in Guatemala's human and economic development was far more positive than has been previously documented.The book is amply documented with chapter notes and a bibliography listing more than 200 cited works. It includes 25 historical photos, reproduced from the collection of the Centro de Investigaciones Regionales de MesoAmerica (CIRMA).
David Cameron was elected Conservative leader in 2005, promising to modernize the party following its three successive electoral defeats. He became Prime Minister in 2010, forming Britain’s first coalition government in 70 years, at a moment of economic crisis, and went on to win the first outright Conservative majority for 23 years at the 2015 general election. In For the Record, he will explain how the governments he led transformed the UK economy while implementing a modern, compassionate agenda that included reforming education and welfare, legalizing gay marriage, honoring the UK’s commitment to overseas aid and spearheading environmental policies. He will shed light on the seminal world events of his premiership—the Arab Spring; the rise of ISIS; the invasion of Ukraine; the conflicts in Libya, Iraq and Syria—as well as events at home, from the Olympic Games in 2012 to the Scottish referendum. He will provide, for the first time, his perspective on the EU referendum and his views on the future of Britain’s place in the world following Brexit. Revealing the battles and achievements of his life and career in intimate and frank detail, For the Record will be an important assessment of the significant political events of the last decade, the nature of power and the role of leadership at a time of profound global change.
The deposed Chief of Staff charts his political rise and fall, offering a lively critique of the Reagan administration, particularly "Irangate" and the ensuing chaos for which many blamed Regan
From the co-authors of the classic Last Night a DJ Saved My Life: A fascinating oral history of record spinning told by the groundbreaking DJs themselves. Acclaimed authors and music historians Bill Brewster and Frank Broughton have spent years traveling across the world to interview the revolutionary and outrageous DJs who shaped the last half-century of pop music. The Record Players is the fun and revealing result—a collection of firsthand accounts from the obsessives, the playboys, and the eccentrics that dominated the music scene and contributed to the evolution of DJ culture. In the sixties, radio tastemakers brought their sound to the masses, while early trendsetters birthed the role of the club DJ at temples of hip like the Peppermint Lounge. By the seventies, DJs were changing the course of popular music; and in the eighties, young innovators wore out their cross-faders developing techniques that turned their craft into its own form of music. With discographies, favorite songs, and amazing photos of all the DJs as young firebrands, The Record Players offers an unparalleled music education: from records to synthesizers, from disco to techno, and from influential cliques to arenas packed with thousands of dancing fans.
