Post-Revolutionary Nicaragua: State, Class, and the Dilemmas of Agrarian Policy
By Forrest D. Colburn
The author concedes that counterrevolution in Nicaragua, and the sponsorship and assistance it receives from the United States, have aggravated economic and political difficulties and limited the attempts to solve them; but the revolutionary prospects were deflating before counterrevolution arose, having fallen victim to inherent economic and other constraints. The study is therefore a commentary on the nature and viability of the post-revolutionary process in Third World countries. The emphasis is economic, but not exclusively so.
