Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

With unprecedented use of local and national sources, Lauria-Santiago presents a more complex portrait of El Salvador than has ever been ventured before.  Using thoroughly researched regional case studies, Lauria-Santiago challenges the accepted vision of Central America in the nineteenth century and critiques the "liberal oligarchic hegemony" model of El Salvador.  He reveals the existence of a diverse, commercially active peasantry that was deeply involved with local and national networks of power.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 301-317) and index.
