In my review of the original (See HAHR, Nov. 1962), I pointed out that this was the best analysis of the unionist movement in Central America to date, despite some objections that I had noted to the author’s treatment of the British presence in the nineteenth century. My evaluation has not changed.

Yet, I was hopeful that a “Revised Edition” might lead to a scholarly updating of the volume, adding whatever new bibliographical items that might have appeared since the publication of the first version. This is not the case, however. For all practical purposes, this is a mere photoreproduction of the original. There are seven new pages that discuss events in Central America from 1960 to 1975, two corrections on page three, and one new bibliographical entry which, in turn, was the basis for most of the new pages.
