Abstract:

This thesis focuses on US actions in the Dominican Republic in 1965 and in Grenada in 1983. Both of these incidents involving US military action in minor Carribbean island nations undergoing violent political revolutions. These two incidents are compared and contrasted for policy similarities applicable to revolutionary regimes in Latin America and Caribbean basin. The specific areas addressed are similarities and differences in each situation regarding the motivations and objectives of the US national leadership, international and domestic repercussions of each action, and military objectives and method of application in each case.
