The FSLN in Opposition
Four experts on the Nicaraguan political system examine the causes and consequences of the striking defeat of the Sandinista National Liberation Front in the 1990 Nicaraguan democratic election. Using extensive survey data, the contributors detail a variety of circumstances, beyond the strong influence of U.S. military and diplomatic interest, that led to the victory of counter-revolutionary forces in Nicaragua.
