Latin American and U.S. scholars and journalists present an independent analysis of the first five years of the Sandinista Revolution. They show the immense problems - organizational, economic, political - faced in transforming a society distorted by decades of the Somoza dictatorship, problems made much more difficult by the U.S.A.'s continuous pressure since 1979 and the CIA's covert war of subversion.
