What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

An excellent introduction to the production practices and labour needs associated with the cultivation of coffee and cotton in Nicaragua.—Journal of Development Studies



A rigorous, succinct treatise. . . . Enriquez meticulously develops and details the implications of . . . the shifting Sandinista programs.—American Journal of Sociology



An eyewitness, yet scholarly and balanced account, Harvesting Change focuses on the tense and often conflictual relationship that existed between agroexport, agrarian reform, and labor supply during the Sandinista revolution. This is probably the best work in English on its subject, an understanding of which is pivotal to any real comprehension of the Nicaraguan revolution.—Thomas W. Walker, Ohio University
