- Lynne Rienner Publishers, Inc.
Mostly sidestepping the issues of why people rebel, Rochlin (political science, Okanagan U. College, Canada) here focuses on how people rebel, examining how strategy and power condition successes, failures, and longevity of Latin American guerilla groups. Four case studies examine Peru's Sendero Luminoso, Colombia's FARC and ELN, and Mexico's Zapatista movement. Two chapters are provided for each group, with the first examining origins, ideologies, and support bases, while the second looks at the rebels in relation to power, strategy, and national security (presumably from the viewpoint of government elites).
