Synopsis: Castro's Cuba is isolated; the guerrillas who once spread havoc through Uruguay and Argentina are dead, dispersed, or running for office as moderates. And in 1990, Nicaragua's Sandinistas were rejected at the polls by their own constituents. Are these symptoms of the fall of the Latin American left? Or are they merely temporary lulls in an ongoing revolution that may yet transform our hemisphere?
This perceptive and richly eventful study by one of Mexico's most distinguished political scientists tells the story behind the failed movements of the past thirty years while suggesting that the left has a continuing relevance in a continent that suffers from destitution and social inequality. Combining insider's accounts of intrigue and armed struggle with a clear-sighted analysis of the mechanisms of day-to-day power, Utopia Unarmed is an indispensable work of scholarship, reportage, and political prognosis.

From the Publisher:
"This is the thoughtful and well-written story of the rise and fall of the Latin-American left, a victim of its own wilfulness and of other people's dogmas. And it is also a plan--polemical but less beguiling--for surviving the shipwreck even when all your belongings have been lost."--Gabriel Garcia Marquez
"Seldom does a book as noteworthy asUtopia Unarmed cross my desk...An excellent history...Clear and well-documented [and] a complex prescription for how the left might yet play an essential role in post-cold-war Latin America."--Nicolas Shumway, The New York Times Book Review
