The first publication of El saqueo en Nicaragua, by Rafael de Nogales Méndez, was vetoed in New York in 1931. At that time the United States government seized all copies of the print run in English. He closed the Robert McBride and Co. Publishing House and fined the publishers $250,000.
The Looting of Nicaragua is a testimonial book that tells us a past and a tragic context: the Nicaraguan. It also refers to the situation experienced by Central American countries such as the Dominican Republic and Haiti. Victims of the invasions of the United States of America. This book focuses on the intervention of the American Marines in Nicaragua, which raised the resistance of Augusto César Sandino.
At that time the use of the expression “Banana Republic” spread. An expression that still describes fragile governments and countries intervened by the interests of American corporations. The following is a passage from The Sack of Nicaragua. Let’s see how Nogales Méndez describes the way in which American politicians were legitimized, after promoting armed interventions in Latin America:

“Worthy gentlemen in solemn conclave not long ago awarded the Nobel Peace Prize to the former American Secretary of State, Mr. Frank B. Kellogg. The secretary accepted it, amid tearful applause from both the press and the public throughout America and the United States. How fine, exciting, and plausible this ceremony seemed: I wonder if the gentlemen who were awarding the prize had earlier turned their gazes to the south and west.”

Translation by Ana Mercedes Pérez and foreword by Leonard Warburton Matters.
