      Nicaragua is the largest Central American country which is known for its beautiful beaches, lakes, volcanoes and its two-decade long revolution of the Sandinistas, first against the Somoza dictatorship, and then with the U.S. backed right-wing Contras. Below is a list of books on Nicaragua who stand out among the narratives published on that period and beyond. I'd recommend the book Nicaragua: The Threat of a Good Example (published by Oxfam) if anyone is interested in a good book about the Sandinistas. It is extremely important for all comrades to understand one of the most noteworthy revolutionary movements of the lateth century.

Women that joined the Sandanista movement in the revolutionary Nicaragua essentially fought a double battle: to secure national freedom from the Somoza dictatorship, and to advance gender equality. Revolution gave them a unique opportunity to organize.. One of the remarkable aspects of the revolutionary process was the emergence of women as active participants and leaders.

        SERGIO RAMIREZ Mercado, the Vice President of Nicaragua, has written a new book. It is his first literary work since the revolution that ousted the 45 .   Thousands of women fighters transformed gender roles within the context of the Nicaraguan Revolution and the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN in Spanish) during the intense struggle from to for national independence and self-determination, which continues to this day. That this struggle took place during the murderous intervention.
