520    To Martha Honey, "hostile acts" is shorthand for the 
       nature of U.S. policies in Costa Rica during the last 
       decade. In this book she combines extensive academic 
       research with her firsthand experiences as a journalist 
       covering major portions of the Iran-contra scandal to 
       weave together the story of how the Reagan and Bush 
       administrations undermined Central America's model 
       democracy. Until 1980 Washington paid little attention 
       while Costa Rica quietly developed a benign, quasi-
       socialist form of government that combined respect for 
       human rights with the goal of achieving economic equality.
       Then, Honey writes, the new Reagan administration decided 
       that Costa Rica would be important in the war against the 
       Sandinistas in Nicaragua. Over the next few years, the 
       United States poured huge quantities of economic aid into 
       the country and also covertly trained and equipped contra 
       rebel forces to wage war against the Sandinistas from 
       bases in northern Costa Rica. 
520 8  Honey explores the interaction between politics and 
       economic aid during the Reagan/Bush years, describing 
       illegal military activities, payoffs to Costa Rica 
       officials, misappropriation of funds, and President Oscar 
       Arias's pursuit of his Central American Peace Plan in 
       1986. She recounts her life at the time with her husband, 
       cameraman and journalist Tony Avirgan, writing that "it 
       never occurred to us that by pursuing a journalistic 
       investigation we would end up being accused of drug 
       trafficking, of murder, of bribing witnesses, of 
       espionage; that we would be twice sued for libel; that our
       media clients would be pressured to stop hiring us and our
       colleagues would be told we were Communist agents." 
       Honey's account ends in 1989, the year the Costa Rican 
       government charged CIA operative John Hull with committing
       "hostile acts" for his involvement in contra operations.
