Description

This book tells the story of the American intervention in the Venezuelan boundary dispute that took place on December 21, 1985. The author shows the public opinion as it changed, at times from day to day, and how it related to policies of two governments, which also changed because of pressure from the public. The author also examines how the press in both nations informed the people and helped to change their opinions. This latter function was especially beneficial in promoting the search for a peaceful solution to the boundary controversy.
