This is the story of Latin America's first successful revolution since Cuba. Here is the first major study of the Sandinista Revolution. It focuses mainly on the years of armed struggle and on the exciting process of consolidation. It shows how the Samoza dynasty came to power and what kind of distorted capitalist "family state" it built under U.S. patronage. The author then tells the story of the overthrow of the dictatorship.
