Review of J. Patrice McSherry’s Predatory States: Operation Condor and Covert War in Latin America

This book review describes Operation Condor, “a secret intelligence and operations system created in the 1970s through which the South American military states shared intelligence and seized, tortured, and executed political opponents in one another’s territory.” It discusses U.S. government backing and how college students responded to these revelations.
