Item description for Contemporary Guerrilla Movements in Latin America by Alberto Prieto...
The guerrilla fighter has become a defining image of Latin America. This book reviews recent guerrilla movements across the continent, providing a perceptive analysis of their methods and motivations. Alberto Prieto compares and contrasts the experiences of Sandino in Nicaragua, Fidel and Che in Cuba, the decades-long civil war in Colombia, and the current situation in Central America, Peru, Mexico, and elsewhere.
In particular, the author considers whether the guerrilla era is now over in Latin America, and if social change is possible through more peaceful means.
Alberto Prieto is a professor of history at the University of Havana.
