Two Steps Forward and One Step Back: Conflict and Contradiction in Post-War Guatemala

  • Kristin Marsh Mary Washington College

Abstract

What are the real prospects for lasting peace and greater prosperity in post-war Guatemala? This is the central question underlying Susanne Jonass Of Centaurs and Doves and Christopher Chase-Dunn, Susanne Jonas, and Nelson Amaros Globalization on the Ground. As events continue to unfold for Guatemalans, these scholars tackle the very current issues of democratization, development, justice, and peace in post-war Guatemalan society. The cruel irony is that the very urgency with which these issues must be addressed belies any concrete prediction or even re?ned characterization of the existing situation.
