Central America sprang into the consciousness of the U.S. public in the late 1970s, propelled by the Nicaraguan revolution and the brutal civil wars in Guatemala and El Salvador. The continuing debates over the nature of the conflicts and the role of U.S. policy have too seldom acknowledged the historical depths of the crises' roots, and the size of the Central American nations has often led U.S. participants in the debate to underestimate the dynamism, complexity, and heterogeneity of the social structures that underlie the political struggles.This book presents a historical and analytical interpretation of recent Central American crises. Using a consistent comparative framework, Dr. Weaver sorts out the relations among economic growth, social organization, and political structure and offers explanations for the historically divergent developments among the five Central American nations. By setting those events in a broader Latin American context and illuminating the relationships between domestic and international influences, Dr. Weaver shows how rapid changes in the social organization of economic production in some periods affected social structures and configurations of political power, while at other times political conflicts conditioned and shaped subsequent patterns of economic expansion.

From the Back Cover:

I have written this book with the conviction that knowledge of the historically changing character of social and political life in the region is necessary for understanding and explaining events and prospects in Central America. The purpose of this book is to provide a historical background to recent Central American social unrest, repression, and revolution to help readers engage in current arguments, claims, and debates in a critical and historically informed manner.

About the Author:
