La Prensa by Jaime Chamorro Cardenal
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is the story of that newspaper's struggle to maintain an honest and critical relationship with its readers while at the same time maintaining its foothold on a rocky and ever-changing political terrain. This book details past and present governmental abuse of Nicaraguan civil liberties, human rights, and press censorship. In doing so, it gives a compelling account of Nicaragua's two twentieth-century dictatorships and how one newspaper managed to challenge and frighten both.
