Praise

“The best guide yet available to the immense complexities of modern Central American politics … one of the year’s genuinely impressive works of history.”—Times Higher Education Supplement

“Dunkerley does a magnificent job of describing the contours of the class conflicts and political struggles of the postwar period, and the emerging political and economic crises of the 1970s and 1980s … The combination of a broad scope, empirical detail, and a carefully worked out analytical framework makes this the most serious and sophisticated history of modern Central America in English and possibly also in Spanish … A truly major work.”—Third World Quarterly

Power in the Isthmus stands out as a model of intellectual maturity executed with masterly skill.”—Journal of Latin American Studies
