The Sandinista revolution in Nicaragua inspired many North Americans, including the author of this moving and informative book. John Brentlinger made six trips to Nicaragua, both before and after the defeat of the Sandinista Party. Combining the insights of a philosopher with the experiences of a participant-observer, he interprets the Sandinista period as a people's struggle for self-realization in work, culture, politics, and community. The book alternates between journal and essay chapters, weaving descriptions of personal experiences together with interviews and analysis. Whether telling the story of the last day of a young teacher's life, describing new forms of poetry and art, examining representations of Nicaragua in the U.S. media, or discussing the government's successes and failures, Brentlinger vividly captures the spirit and enduring significance of the Sandinista revolution.
