Summary

This newly revised volume details Nicaraguars"s unique history, culture, economics, politics, and foreign relations. Its historical coverage considers the countryrs"s early and recent history, from pre-Columbian and colonial times through the nationalist liberal era, the U.S. marine occupation, the Somoza dictatorship, the Sandinista regime, the conservative restoration, and the Sandinista comeback. The fifth edition includes a new chapter detailing the reelection of Daniel Ortega and the irony of his current role in undercutting the rule of law and democracy that he helped institute in his earlier administration. This edition also documents what may be the more enduring reality of this Central American country: the historical and ongoing interventions by which the United States-the "eagle" to the north-continues to shape Nicaraguan political, economic, and cultural life.
