|"What an impressive book! I was deeply
touched to read it and to be carried back to that time and those cruel
events of the war in Nicaragua. They would have disappeared into
the amnesia hole of history except for efforts like yours. You have
done the people who suffered and died a profound service."
Moyers, journalist and commentator

a deeply moving book. [...] in it we see the human spirit
surmount obstacles and
pain, observe how these protagonists of the horror of the war get on
lives, fall in love, bear children, work.
The photographs contained in this book are more eloquent than any
word one might venture to pronounce. The testimony rendered, the simple
words with which the people portrayed herein make reference to
their lives, constitute a harsh, even fierce indictment of decisions
taken by the politicians and the military with no
consideration for the human cost involved, the 'collateral damage' the
subsequent actions would entail. [More...]

the Legacy of U.S.
by Paul Dix, edited by Pamela Fitzpatrick
220 pages, 90 photographs, bilingual English/Spanish
Prologue by Gioconda Belli
beautiful black and white photographs and moving personal testimonies,
documents the horrific
effects of U.S. international policy (especially the Contra War of
the 1980s) on
the people of Nicaragua. It also captures inspiring stories of
amazing people who are
strength and determination for a better life for themselves, their
children and their communities.
A powerful testament of
the suffering of the Nicaraguan people, but also a tribute to their
resilience, beauty, humor, and amazing ability to forgive. A
'must-have' for all who care about human rights and people's history,
and finding more ethical ways for countries to co-exist, share
resources, and resolve conflicts.

remarkable photos and the stories that accompany them should be on
billboards from sea to shining sea, so the pain and suffering they
represent might fall drop by drop upon the American psyche and [...]
wisdom might come to these United
States and her foreign policy." [More...]

"To see the true price of war, you must
look in the face of the innocents who endure it and hear their voices.
That is the gift that Dix and Fitzpatrick present in this stirring book—the sobering gift of letting us see and
hear what our 'leaders' so routinely do in our names."
Hightower, national radio commentator and author
