Former political officer for the Nicaraguan Resistance (the Contras), Rogelio Pardo-Maurer shares his experiences of the factional dynamics of that group in this provocative new study. Providing a historical account of internal politics in the Resistance, Pardo-Maurer analyzes the principle factions or issues of contention, devoting special attention to the influence of the American political process on Resistance policy. The book provides an intriguing inside look at one of the most controversial resistance movements of the twentieth century. Pardo-Maurer follows the internal dynamics of the contras from the exposure of Oliver North to the signing of the ceasefire at Sapoa, the period in which he served as political assistant to the representative of the Resistance in Washington, D.C.
