Industry Reviews

"The best guide yet available to the immense complexities of modern Central American politics ... one of the year's genuinely impressive works of history."--Times Higher Education Supplement "Dunkerley does a magnificent job of describing the contours of the class conflicts and political struggles of the postwar period, and the emerging political and economic crises of the 1970s and 1980s ... The combination of a broad scope, empirical detail, and a carefully worked out analytical framework makes this the most serious and sophisticated history of modern Central America in English and possibly also in Spanish ... A truly major work."--Third World Quarterly

"Power in the Isthmus stands out as a model of intellectual maturity executed with masterly skill."--Journal of Latin American Studies
