El Salvador, 1982, is the height of a ghastly civil war. The author travels from battlefields to body dumps, interviews a puppet president, considers the distinctly Salvadoran meaning of the verb ‘to disappear’ and trains a merciless eye on the terror there as well as on the depredations and evasions of US foreign policy.
