Title
Tiburcio Carias: Portrait of a Honduran Political Leader
Summary
Thomas J. Dodd discussed his book "Tiburcio Carias: Portrait of a Honduran Political Leader" in a program sponsored by the Library's Hispanic Division and Center for the Book. Dodd discussed the rule of Tiburcio Carias, Honduras' longest-serving head of government, who ruled from 1933 to 1949 and was a major political figure in the country's history. The former ambassador analyzed the consolidation and modernization of Honduras under Carias. The book has been widely praised by historians. In the foreword, historian Douglas Brinkley said Dodd achieves a balanced assessment of domestic order and political and social stability during the Carias era.
