In the late summer of 1989, a coalition of anti-Sandinistas nominated Violeta Chamorro to challenge Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega in the February 1990 elections. With this story of Chamorro's late husband, "La Prensa" publisher and editor Pedro Joaquin Chamorro, and of their family, Edmisten aims to clarify the interrelationship of family, politics, and economics critical to an understanding of the Nicaraguan conflict and people. The book's fulcrum is Chamorro's assassination in 1978, an event that galvanized anti-Somoza forces and brought the Sandinista front to power. Edmisten traces the family's fortunes from the beginnings of the antagonism between the Chamorros and Somozas to the Iran-Contra affair and the present ideological division among the Chamorros, a division Edmisten finds typical of Nicaraguan families today and one that reflects the polarity in Nicaraguan society.
