The political history in Latin America has been known through view of point of historians, writers and giornalist, sometimes quite different from the truth. This storie help us to know about that history and could be developed in any latinamerica country but the scenario is Guatemala in the Communism Expansion Age. The facts about 'Dictatorships' and 'Presidencies' of those countries are fascinating and unknown for the major part of the people and with this book the reader will be in contact with a whole new world, a new culture, a politic kind fortunatly almost dissapeared and gonna understand about the actual reason why latin america 'The Back Yard' such as called, are still in the poverty. The courage to describe the impressive abyss between the wealth and the poverty, and it unequal distribution has been to the writer Miguel Angel Asturias, the reason to get two awards: the NOBEL PRIZE in 1967 and the 'exile', paradise sometimes addressed to the people who had the firmness to think in the values of their countries and talk about the facts witnessed of those years, even if could be far away from his beloved soil, such as happened to hundreds of writers, politicians and ordinary and valuable people from the 'Other America'.
