Luis Hector Serra, an Argentine, is a professor of sociology at the Central American University in Managua. His columns on Church–State relations and other matters have appeared frequently in Mangua’s daily, Nuevo Diario. His publications include “Educacón en América Latina” (1983) and shorter pieces on grassroots mobilization in Nicaragua.
This volume addresses the complex issue of the Christian response to the Nicaraguan revolution from a perspective generally sympathetic to the Sandinista’s goals. Luis Serra, himself a Latin American who has worked with the peasantry, argues that the institutional Church has now become a major autonomous source of opposition to the revolution.
