The Time of the Generals: Latin American Professional Militarism in World Perspective

Synopsis

"An international excursion into the byways of the military mind . . . [with] special significance as one of the few books to seek to set, let alone succeed in setting, the Latin American military in a broader international perspective. . . . It will become standard fare for students of Latin America, [and] of military affairs worldwide."-Frank D. McCann, author of The Brazilian-American Alliance, 1937-1945
