  • The Regime of Anastasio Somoza, 1936-1956by Knut Walter

    The University of North Carolina Press 2000; US$ 29.99

    To many observers, Anastasio Somoza, who ruled Nicaragua from 1936 until his assassination in 1956, personified the worst features of a dictator.

    The University of North Carolina Press 2000; US$ 29.99

    Although most discussions of the Guatemalan "revolution" of 1944-54 focus on international and national politics, Revolution in the Countryside presents a more complex and integrated picture of this decade. Jim Handy examines the rural poor, both Maya and Ladino, as key players who had a decisive impact on the nature of change in Guatemala. He looks... more...

    Since 1979, United States policy in Central America has been based on an assumption that revolutionary movements led by Marxists must represent a serious threat to U.S. interests and security. On this point, the difference between liberals and conservatives is merely one of emphasis or accent. Such an assumption is not shared by most governments in... more...
