Handbook of Leftist Guerrilla Groups in Latin America and the Caribbean
Drawing upon primary as well as secondary documents, Liza Gross systematizes the currently available information on revolutionary groups in Latin America and the Caribbean in one concise, accessible reference volume. The entries are organized by country, with each nation's guerrilla groups presented in alphabetical order. The author offers a multitude of vital statistics for each organization, including the year the insurgency coalesced, its principal leadership, and its core ideology. Each account provides the historical and political context for understanding how and why the movement emerged, reviews the organization's activities in detail, and explains its dissolution or present status.
This handbook will be an invaluable resource for students, researchers, academics, journalists, governmental and nongovernmental organizations, military analysts, and general readers with an interest in Latin America.
