Revolution and Revolutionaries

Revolution and Revolutionaries: Guerilla Movements in Latin America
Daniel Castro

Few publications cover the full span of the history of revolutionary movements in Latin America. In Revolution and Revolutionaries, editor Daniel Castro examines all aspects of guerrilla warfare-from revolutionary programs to the repressive tactics used by various governments to rid themselves of the threats presented by revolutionary movements. In addition to illustrating specific cases of guerrilla struggles, Revolution and Revolutionaries also analyze the political and social conditions that made the outbreak of revolutionary movements throughout the region unavoidable. Finally, Castro examines the remaining guerrilla movements still active in Latin America as the century ends.

Revolution and Revolutionaries revive the debate about the viability of revolutionary violence in Latin America and will interest those studying Latin American history and sociology, and political science.
