Noam Chomsky explores relations throughout Central America and relates these to superpower conflicts and the overall impact of the Cold War.

The United States supported reaction throughout the region through economic pressure, CIA intervention, and proxy military activity. Turning the Tide succinctly and powerfully addresses three interrelated questions: What is the aim and impact of U.S. Central American policy? What factors in U.S. society support and oppose current policy? And how can concerned citizens affect future policy?

A particularly revealing focus of Chomsky’s argument is the world of U.S. academia and media, which Chomsky analyzes in detail to explain why the U.S. public was so misinformed about our government’s policies.
