Nicaragua has become an American obsession. Although its population is less than Oklahoma's, it drove the Reagan administration into desperate acts such as the covert mining of its harbours and the Iran-Contra fiasco. But through it all, the country and its people have remained an enigma. William Gentile's camera probes deep into Nicaragua and discovers a simple, innocent people trying to make a life amid a brutal war. An interview with Sergio Ramirez, internationally respected author and vice president of Nicaragua, explores the country's past under Somoza's dictatorship and its present under Sandinista rule. Gentile's photographs and the candid comments of Ramirez - on the tenth anniversary of the Sandinista revolution - make this a document of historical importance.
