Communicating In Popular Nicaragua


This collection of texts, by authors from Nicaragua and the U.S., is the first critical anthology on the media and culture in Nicaragua, where concern for the "freedom of the press" has become a veritable fetish for the international news media. In analyzing numerous aspects of the subject - journalism, the press, the radio, film, video, mural expression, literacy and social movements - in their social-historical dimension, the author attempt to assess the cultural achievements, problems and future of Nicaragua in its struggle to develop a practice of democratic participation despite the siege conditions of U.S. imposed warfare: economic and psychological as well as military.
