Beyond the Barricades · Nicaragua and the Struggle for the Sandinista Press, 1979–1998
By Adam Jones

Throughout the 1980s, Barricada, the official daily newspaper of the ruling Sandinista Front, played the standard role of a party organ, seeking the mobilize the Nicaraguan public to support the revolutionary agenda. Beyond the Barricades, however, reveals a story that is both more intriguing and much more complex.

“A groundbreaking work… original and probing. Jones has done an excellent job of chronicling and analyzing the fascinating series of events that took place at Barricada.”
