Contents Nations and nationalism in theoretical perspective -- From independence to client state -- The Sandinista National Liberation Front and the construction of a revolutionary subject -- Revolutionary nation-building : imagining the Sandinista nation through history and literacy -- Indians, Creoles, and Mestizos : the Atlantic coast and visions of the Nicaraguan nation -- From acquiescence to ethnic militancy : Costeño responses to Sandinista anti-imperialist nationalism.
Summary Interviewing former Sandinista officials, scouring Nicaragua's national archives, and studying facts on the ground, Luciano Baracco identifies the origins of Nicaragua's Sandinista Revolution in terms of the failure of nineteenth-century liberal regimes to complete the task of constructing Nicaragua as a culturally and historically distinct, sovereign, national entity.
