Surviving the Legacy of U.S. Policy
Photography by Paul Dix, edited by Pamela Fitzpatrick
220 pages, 90 photographs, bilingual English/Spanish
Prologue by Gioconda Belli
Through beautiful black and white photographs and moving personal testimonies, this book 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 struggling with 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.
