Description : As President Carter?s ambassador to Nicaragua from 1977?1979, Mauricio Sola£n witnessed a critical moment in Central American history. In U.S. Intervention and Regime Change in Nicaragua, Sola£n outlines the role of U.S. foreign policy during the Carter administration and explains how this policy with respect to the Nicaraguan Revolution of 1979 not only failed but helped impede the institutionalization of democracy there. Late in the 1970s, the United States took issue with the Nicaraguan dictator Anastasio Somoza. Moral suasion, economic sanctions, and other peaceful instruments from Washington led to violent revolution in Nicaragua and bolstered a new dictatorial government. A U.S.-supported counterrevolution formed, and Sola£n argues that the United States attempts to this day to determine who rules Nicaragua. Sola£n explores the mechanisms that kept Somoza?s poorly legitimized regime in power for decades, making it the most enduring Latin American authoritarian regime of the twentieth century. Sola£n argues that continual shifts in U.S. international policy have been made in response to previous policies that failed to produce U.S.- friendly international environments. His historical survey of these policy shifts provides a window on the working of U.S. diplomacy and lessons for future policy-making.

Description : This study records an oral history and ethnography of the Afro-Caribbean individuals and families who settled in Tortuguero, a small village in northeastern Costa Rica. It is the product of nine months of field work in Costa Rica by the author and subsequent library research in the United States. The purpose of the study is twofold: (1) to describe and analyze the Afro-Caribbean social structure, cultural life, and ethnic identity within Tortuguero, and (2) to place Tortuguero within the larger context of that phase of the African diaspora that placed people of African descent on the islands of the western Caribbean and on the eastern coast of Central America from Belize to Panama. The author uses the concept of creole cultures and societies to analyze and interpret the descriptive, ethnographic data in the book. He argues that creole cultures and societies, and the ethnic identities associated with them, although structured on past traditions, are essentially dynamic and emergent and are constantly in the process of being re-created and remolded. Culturally, the Afro-Caribbean residents of Tortuguero are African, Amerindian, and European/American. They have black cultural roots that reach back through the ex-slaves and freedmen of Costa Rica, Nicaragua, San Andres, and Jamaica to West Africa. They have red cultural roots, entwined with their black roots, that connect with the Zambo-Miskitu and the Garifuna (Black Carib) in Costa Rica and Nicaragua, back to the Carib Indians of the Lesser Antilles. They also have European/American roots that reach back to their overlords, employers, and co-workers in Costa Rica, Honduras, Nicaragua, San Andres, and Jamaica - to the many British, Spanish, and North American men and women they courted and married in the places where they lived and worked. Their most shallow cultural roots are Iberian, cultivated only recently as a result of their exposure to the dominant Costa Rican institutions, particularly the media, the public schools, and the Roman Catholic Church. Linguistically, about half of the residents of Tortuguero speak English, or a creolized form of English that had its origin in Jamaica. The other half speak Spanish. Many, however, are bilingual. The history and experiences of the Afro-Caribbean peoples in Costa Rica is one of the little-known chapters of the African diaspora. Less research has been undertaken among the Afro-Caribbean communities of Costa Rica than among those in most other areas of the Caribbean and Central America. Yet it is a significant chapter of the African diaspora, the details of which need to be told. This book makes a major contribution toward that goal.

Description : In recent years, sustainable development has emerged as a central goal of the World Bank and grassroots activists alike. In Grassroots Struggles for Sustainability in Central America, Lynn R. Horton explores the implications of this new, often contested discourse and related policies for Central America's rural and indigenous poor. Drawing on the testimony of leaders and residents of three communities in Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama, Horton explores grassroots assumptions, values, and practices of sustainable development and, in particular, the ways in which they overlap with or challenge international financial institutions' discourse of sustainability. With a comparative, empirical approach, Horton also analyzes dominant practices linked to sustainable development - neoliberal reforms, project interventions, and environmental protection. She reveals how these practices support or undermine economic, cultural, and political opportunities for the rural and indigenous poor and impact these communities' advancement of their own visions of sustainability. Finally, the author explores processes of empowerment that enable communities to articulate and put into practice local visions of sustainability, which contribute toward broader social and structural transformations. Grassroots Struggles for Sustainability in Central America will interest sociologists, anthropologists, and others who study the theory and practice of sustainable development.

Description : Research on the Central American colonial experience - long overshadowed by the scholarly focus on Mexico and Peru - has begun to blossom, greatly expanding our knowledge of land and life in the region under Spanish rule. The first bibliography of its kind, Demography and Empire offers a comprehensive survey of recent literature in Spanish and in English pertaining to the population history of colonial Central America. In their introductory chapter, Lovell and Lutz examine contact-period demography, native survival and demise, race mixture, and ethnic composition. They then make use of over two hundred entries to discuss the salient findings of population research to date and to provide an accessible bibliographic synthesis of a rich, diverse, and evolving literature.
