A serious and scholarly attempt to analyze the ideology, organization and policies of Nicaragua's Sandinista movement, with an emphasis on unresolved tensions between the Sandinistas' Marxist ideology and their pragmatic policies. This is by no means the definitive work but it is the most balanced and best-informed account yet published of the Nicaraguan revolutionary process.
