Summary: The war in Nicaragua is not over--it has just become more invisible. Deadly Embrace traces the history of U.S. involvement in the region, focusing on the current economic attack of the IMF, the World Bank and U.S. agencies. After five years of IMF and World Bank programs, Nicaragua has experienced the worst economic collapse in its history and has been reduced to one of the poorest countries in the world. The devastation that Nicaragua has experienced, although extreme, is not unique; according to UNICEF, six million children die each year due to IMF and World Bank policies.
