About Dominican Republic
The Dominican Republic is a Spanish-speaking representative democracy located on the eastern portion of the Caribbean island of Hispaniola, bordering Haiti. A legacy of unsettled, mostly non-representative, rule for much of the 20th century most notably the thirty-two year reign of the military leader Rafael Le髇idas Trujillo lasted until 1961.

The Dominican Republic ("do-MIN-i-kun") should not be confused with Dominica ("do-min-EE-ka"), another Caribbean country
History of Dominican Republic
The country has had a history of changing ownership, with Spain, France, Haiti, Spain again, and the United States (twice) taking their turns at ruling Dominican territory amid attempts at independence and self-rule. The twentieth century was marked by repeated U.S. intervention in local affairs. Apart from tentative U.S. support for the Trujillo dictatorship (1930-1961) (though this faded during his final years,) the most infamous example of this is the 1965 invasion by American troops in the midst of a Dominican civil war, an uprising that was sparked by an attempt to restore the republic''s first democratically-elected president of the 20th century, Juan Bosch, who had been overthrown by a right-wing coup in 1963. This invasion had the effect of establishing the rule of Joaqu韓 Balaguer (1966-1978), and ensuring that Juan Bosch''s constitutional government never returned to power. The Johnson administration justified the 1965 intervention by stating that it suspected many of Bosch''s supporters were pro-Cuban Communists.
