Fascinating whirlwind tour of Haiti and Latin America and of their dictators, both evil and benevolent. Written by a New Zelander primarily about a Britisher and his (their) experiences in countries which happen to be in opposition to Anerican policies adds to freshness of the topic. Now to read Pico Iyer's book on Greene and then some Greene, himself.
