Abstract

In the clamor of debate surrounding the crisis in Central America, there is a strange silence. It concerns Guatemala. Guatemala, with 7.2 million people, is the most populous country in the isthmus; it has the region's largest economy. Yet when President Ronald Reagan, for instance, took the unusual step of addressing a joint session of Congress on April 27, 1983, to seek support for his confrontational policies in Central America, Guatemala was all but absent. The key country in the region merited just two mentions in Reagan's speech, both of them cursory.
