Book by Golden, Renny
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Golden's painful, at times brutal oral history of the truly dispossessed of El Salvador chronicles the fate of impoverished women who are made a part of the Salvadoran economic struggles while reaping few benefits. Covering diverse aspects of female militancy--martyrs, organizers, revolutionaries--this book excels when it gives voice to these faceless, nameless participants and victims. Conversely, Golden can be quite vitriolic, particularly in setting the scene. One needs to move past this outraged rhetoric (which is admittedly justified, but a bit overwhelming for the inquisitive but uninitiated reader). The lives themselves testify to a greater commitment and understanding, and it is this element which will ultimately convince the reader. Some familiarity with base Christian communities and liberation theology is helpful. Recommended for women's studies and growing liberation theology collections.
