9780044457541: Land, Power and Poverty: Agrarian Transformation and Political Conflict in Central America (Thematic studies in Latin America)

Land, Power, and Poverty explores the development of the rigid and unequal structures of rural Central American society, the challenge in recent decades to those structures by a restive peasantry, and the role in these conflicts of five governments of the region—Guatemala, Costa Rica, Honduras, El Salvador, and Nicaragua. The author also assesses the role of international actors, especially the United States, in Central America.The second edition of Land, Power, and Poverty provides a comprehensive and current analysis of the relationship between agrarian structures and political turmoil in Central America. Each country chapter is brought up-to-date, and the author covers recent scholarship and events since 1986, including the decreasing militarization in the region. Discussion of the environmental consequences of agrarian change is also expanded.
