The battle for Guatemala : rebels, death squads, and U.S. power by Susanne Jonas( Book )

14 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 698 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A contemporary history of Guatemala{u2019}s thirty-year civil war{u2014}the longest and bloodiest in the hemisphere{u2014}this book pulls aside the veil of secrecy that has obscured the origins of the war. Using a structural analysis that takes critical events and changes in the nation{u2019}s economic and social structure as a starting point for understanding its political crises, the author unravels the contradictions of Guatemalan politics and illustrates why, in the face of unmatched military brutality and repeated U.S. interventions, popular and revolutionary movements have arisen time and again. The central protagonists in the turbulent battle for Guatemala{u2014}rebels, death squads, and the United States{u2014}are evaluated in a dynamic framework that highlights the role of indigenous peoples and women and underscores the articulation of ethnic and gender divisions with class divisions. This book{u2019}s interdisciplinary approach differentiates it from others in English and makes it an invaluable case study on the internal dynamics of Third World revolution and counterrevolution as well as on issues of human rights and U.S. policy in Central America
Of centaurs and doves : Guatemala's peace process by Susanne Jonas( Book )

16 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in English and Spanish and held by 587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Of Centaurs and Doves is the first English-language, book-length account of Guatemala's historic, but difficult, peace process. The author, Susanne Jonas, assesses the negotiation and content of the 1996 peace accords, and their implementation during the last years of the 20th century. Her analysis also highlights their significance beyond Guatemala - both for Central America over the long run and for the Americas as a whole - including U.S.-Latin American relations."--Jacket

Guatemala-U.S. migration : transforming regions by Susanne Jonas( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study of Guatemalan migration to the United States from the late 1970s to the present. It analyzes this migration in a regional context including Guatemala, Mexico, and the United States. This book illuminates the perilous passage through Mexico for Guatemalan migrants, as well as their settlement in various U.S. venues. Moreover, it builds on existing theoretical frameworks and breaks new ground by analyzing the construction and transformations of this migration region and transregional dimensions of migration. Seamlessly blending multiple sociological perspectives, this book addresses the experiences of both Maya and ladino Guatemalan migrants, incorporating gendered as well as ethnic and class dimensions of migration. It spans the most violent years of the civil war and the postwar years in Guatemala, hence including both refugees and labor migrants. The demographic chapter delineates five phases of Guatemalan migration to the United States since the late 1970s, with immigrants experiencing both inclusion and exclusion very dramatically during the most recent phase, in the early twenty-first century. This book also features an innovative study of Guatemalan migrant rights organizing in the United States and transregionally in Guatemala/Central America and Mexico. The two contrasting in-depth case studies of Guatemalan communities in Houston and San Francisco elaborate in vibrant detail the everyday experiences and evolving stories of the immigrants' lives.
