Red Heat : During the presidencies of Eisenhower, Kennedy, and Johnson, the Caribbean was in crisis. While the United States and the Soviet Union acted out the world's tensions on Cuba, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic, the powerbrokers of these three critical island nations - the Castro brothers, Che Guevara, Rafael Trujillo, and Francois "Papa Doc" Duvalier - had ambitions of their own. Steeped in new material and eyewitness reports, Red Heat is an authoritative account of a wildly dramatic and dangerous era of international politics that has unmistakable resonance today.
