Augusto "César" Sandino: Messiah of Light and Truth
"Ultimately, Sandino saw himself as a Divine incarnation. In exploring how religion dominated his persona and activated his political and social projects, this book portrays Sandino as not just a rebel but a revolutionary prophet and messiah. It is at once an intriguing and significant contribution to the growing literature on Sandino, on Nicaraguan and Latin American history, and on millenarian movements and religions."--BOOK JACKET.
