Bloomington & Indianapolis: Indiana University Press, (1991) dj.

Includes a prologue by Ernesto Cardenal and an introduction by Jack C. Hopkins. From the Library Journal: "In Nicaragua over the past decade, Augusto Cesar Sandino - the patron saint of the Sandinista movement and a martyred general who fought U.S. Marines in the late 1920s - has been transmogrified into a national hero of mythic stature. Various images of Sandino permeated Nicaraguan life under the Sandinista regime with his distinctive silhouette appearing everywhere. Here, photographs of this popular art as expressions of Nicaraguan nationalism have been juxtaposed with excerpts from Sandino's journals and letters as well as other documents from Nicaraguan history."
