American journalist Stephen Kinzer spent a decade in Nicaragua in the 1970s and 1980s, reporting on the overthrow of the Somoza dictatorship in 1979 and the Contra War that followed. Peasants sympathizing with the socialist Sandinista party armed themselves to fight off guerilla groups of American-sponsored Contras, while civilians were caught in the middle of the war. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0674025938, Paperback)

In 1976, at age twenty-five, Stephen Kinzer arrived in Nicaragua as a freelance journalist--and became a witness to history. He returned many times during the years that followed, becoming Latin America correspondent for the Boston Globe in 1981 and joining the foreign staff of the New York Times in 1983. That year he openedthe New York Times Managua bureau, making that newspaper the first daily in America to maintain a full-time office in Nicaragua.

Widely considered the best-connected journalist in Central America, Kinzer personally met and interviewed people at every level of the Somoza, Sandinistas and contra hierarchies, as well as dissidents, heads of state, and countless ordinary citizens throughout the region.

Blood of Brothers is Kinzer's dramatic story of the centuries-old power struggle that burst into the headlines in 1979 with the overthrow of the Somoza dictatorship. It is a vibrant portrait of the Nicaraguan people and their volcanic land, a cultural history rich in poetry and bloodshed, baseball and insurrection.
