Synopses & Reviews
"This important and disturbing volume provides ten case histories of recent institutionalized violence and discrimination against the Maya-speaking peoples of Guatemala. The authors... reconstruct events by interpreting oral history, comparing contemporary situations with their knowledge of the recent past, and applying their understanding of complex cultural, economic, and political factors. ...This well-integrated, well-produced book is an important first step in the documentation of one of the major ethnic tragedies of modern times". -- Ethnohistory. "A chilling exposure of a brutal repression that has somehow escaped the headlines". -- Kirkus Reviews.
