A very good, clean copy, inside and out, with a very good, slightly shelfworn dust jacket.  *"The Marines were sent into Haiti in 1915 in what was intended as a short term measure because of the fear that Germany might establish submarine bases there that would threated American shipping and the Panama Canal. But the Marines remained for twenty years, long after the German threat had disappeared. They were necessary to prevent the overthrow of the Haitian regime put into power by the United States. They also guaranteed that long-term commitment to American financial interests would not be abandoned."...dj
