Fecage
Excellently written: Mr. Woodward breezes through the history of Guatemala, highlighting not just events but the currents and influences that shaped these, producing a highly readable document, one that adds substantially to the understanding of the country as it exists today. It is ideal for students, travelers, and businessmen who are both new to the subject and don't have the interests of a scholar, but for those who wish to delve further, he supplies and in-depth bibliography. However, for those who have read other histories of that country, they will either admire or resent his neutrality. In writing his history Mr Woodward is trying to explain how things happened, rather than prove a point. For example, his section on the American overthrow of the government of Arbenz provides an excellent review of the context that led to this American intervention, but refrains from expressing judgments - he lets the reader decide for himself.
Natety
I cannot imagine learning more in a university course. Guatemala is a wonderful country that has been invaded, stepped on, lied to, and held captive. Mr. Woodward, Jr. has been able to weave an interesting story from cold, hard facts.

Nice synopsis of Guatemala. Succinct, but poorly written.
Marinara
I was not able to absorb so much unfamiliar information and so many names and dates. Not exciting.

Discussed the development of the country

more like a book report than a book. Cursory and generic discussion better presented in any dictionary or Wikipedia. Poorly referenced.
