DOLLARS FOR BULLETS. By Harold Norman Denny. New York: The Dial Press, 1929. $4.00.

We have been so long and violently abused for our presence and actions in Nicaragua that it is a pleasure to have available as plain and fair an account of America’s doings in this land as this book affords. It has just the right source. The author was a trained observer, sent to Nicaragua as the representative of the New York Times, at the time of one of the recent revolutions.
In pursuing the past history and present activities of the prominent forces of the country, he became so interested in the subject that he resigned his position with the Times so that the paper would not feel responsible for his conclusions.
