Germany in Central America Competitive Imperialism, 1821-1929 Press Reviews

Historians have long understood that Germany often played as significant a role as Great Britain or the United States in Latin America, but there are few works, especially in English, dealing with the history of Germany's relations with the region. . . . While providing an overview of Germany's evolving relationship with the Central American countries, Schoonover argues that the German thrust into Central America and other peripheral areas was motivated by the same idea that drove British and American imperialism: the belief that expanding into world markets would reduce the domestic, social, and economic conflicts that wracked these industrial giants. -- American Historical Review Schoonover has written a book rich in material and knowledge. . . .Essential reading for anyone interested in German expansion andthe history of the Central American states. -- Bulletin of the German Historical Institute
