Augusto "César" Sandino
Messiah of Light and Truth

Marco Aurelio Navarro-Génie

Cloth $34.95    |    0-8156-2949-4    |   2002

A revelatory look at the life and times of Augusto Sandino, Nicaraguan rebel leader, national icon, messianic prophet.

"Offers a spiritual biography of a Nicaraguan revolutionary. . . . Sandino, an early 20th-century firebrand from whom the Sandinista government later took its name, has been studied before, but not with this kind of attention to his unique theology and millenarian worldview. . . . This is an accessible biography with a fresh, long-overdue perspective."
dash Publishers Weekly

"This well-crafted volume . . . offers a psychological analysis of the intrepid revolutionary leader who was haunted by the stigma of illegitimacy and obsessed with a sense of personal dignity. . . . This book adds greatly to the literature of the enigma that is Nicaragua."
dash Choice

6 x 9, 208 pages, 2 maps, notes, index
