This article offers an historiographical analysis on the impact of the Cold War in Central America. To that end, this work begins by outlining a characterizationof the Cold War in Latin America in way that is both less episodic and focused on a genuinely Latin American perspective. Our analysis will describe how the Cold War generated two fractures, one external and one domestic, which altered the region’s processes of historical transformation. After having defined this framework, it will go on to analyze the connections between the Central American region and the broader Cold War processes affecting Latin America during that period.
