Revolution From the Left and Right in Central America, 1979 to 1994:
U.S. Congressional Involvement

Prof. David Bonior

This special seminar will explore the tumultuous decade of the 1980’s, focusing on Nicaragua, El Salvador, the Cold War and the role of the U.S. Congress. The seminar will have two components: first, it will examine the intense focus and involvement of the U.S. Congress in Central America in the 1980s; and second, it will explore the legacy of that congressional involvement as it plays out in the battle over the enactment of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

David Bonior represented the 10th Congressional District of Michigan in the House of Representatives for 26 years. From 1991-2002, Congressman Bonior was the Democratic Whip, the second in command in the House Democratic Leadership. He is currently a professor in the College of Urban, Labor and Metropolitan Affairs at Wayne State University.
