MEDIA REVIEWS

"Exceptional. . . . Rich in ethnographic detail and covers many aspects of change triggered by the agrarian revolution of 1944-1954."
"--American Historical Review"


"A compelling and provocative contribution to the slowly expanding body of research on Guatemala's 1944-54 revolution."
"--Hispanic American Historical Review"


"In contrast to many accounts that emphasize the top-down, urban-initiated nature of reforms, Forster places rural workers in the center of the political drama and demonstrates that they often were ahead of the revolutionary state... her skill in securely locating local histories in national contexts enables her to emphasize the complexities of the process without losing clarity."
