i havent read it personally because i only read slash fanfiction but i've heard good things about this book http://www.amazon.com/Killing-Hope-Military-Interventions-II-Updated/dp/1567512534/ref=mt_hardcover?_encoding=UTF8&me=

it's not specifically about south america but that's where a great deal of us covert actions were located after ww2 so it might be relevant

I realize now that I was looking at the library binding edition and paperback is available. It's not in the local library system but I do plan to see if it's at the local bookstore and if not might get them to order it in for me. while not strictly about south america it is still very in line with what I'm looking for!

following up on this: this book is really interesting and i didn't expect it to be so much about communism so that's a pleasant surprise

edit: this is going to greatly increas my ability to be Right at dinner parties

I got the recommendation from a communist website so I would damn well hope it was at least partly communist ☭☭☭☭☭
