      Broadly dealing with feminist issues in Latin America in her repertoire of eclectic and genre-spanning writings, Carmen Boullosa is an exceptional novelist, poet, and playwright. This stunning and wide ranging amount of quality writing leaves it difficult to pick just one novel, but Leaving Tabasco () is an excellent place to start. A. Walter LaFeber’s Inevitable Revolutions looks at the US/Latin-American relationship from a slightly different perspective. It complements Schoultz’s book well because it focuses, very specifically, on the countries of Central America. It covers a shorter timeframe, picking up when the United States first intervened militarily in Central America at the turn of the 20th century.
