This is the story of that newspaper's struggle to maintain an honest and critical relationship with its readers while at the same time maintaining its foothold on a rocky and ever-changing political terrain. This book details past and present governmental abuse of Nicaraguan civil liberties, human rights, and press censorship. In doing so, it gives a compelling account of Nicaragua's two twentieth-century dictatorships and how one newspaper managed to challenge and frighten both.
