Reviews

'Elisabeth Jean Wood's Insurgent Collective Action and Civil War in El Salvador is a scholastic tour de force that can, on the one hand, be described as the latest addition to that canon of classic works seeking to explain peasant insurgency, while on the other as offering a radical and novel account of campesino motivations … detailed and comprehensive … novel and innovative … Her conclusions open a new chapter in the study of peasant rebellion.' Latin American Review of Books
