Graduate Grantee Presentation: John Bedan

In 1961, President John F. Kennedy announced that the Alliance for Progress would bring prosperity and democracy to Latin America. When the program ended seven years later, Guatemala had become a military-state designed to crush dissidents and communists. This study of US-Guatemalan relations during the 1960s traces the transformation of the Guatemalan state into a war-machine that would go on to commit numerous atrocities, culminating in genocide, over the course of the Cold War. 

John Bedan is a graduate student in the UO Department of History.
