The Undermining of the Sandinista Revolution
Find this book in the library
This book explores the impact of Sandinista electoral defeat and the U.S. backed Chamorro administration on the gains of the Nicaraguan revolution. Through a series of essays based on current research, seven experts on contemporary Nicaragua draw a balance sheet on the gains of the Revolution and assess the current status of the revolutionary process. The Revolution brought dramatic social, economic and political changes to Nicaragua in the 1980s, but in the wake of the electoral defeat of the FSLN in 1990, the revolution struggled to survive in the face of challenges from the Chamorro administration, the U.S. government, and the International Monetary Fund. Significant efforts to protect the revolution's achievements have been mounted, especially in grassroots organizing and by women's organizations.
