Synopsis

"This book offers biographical aspects of the authoress and a selection of her conferences on the revolution in Nicaragua and the foreign politics of the United States in the ’80s. The conferences were given to religious leaders, university students, the Reagan administration, and the Congress and leaders of diverse organizations in the United States.
It helps us to visualize the process of internal transformations that Maryknoll, the most revolutionary missionary order of the United States, experienced at that time and the participation of many of its members in the processes of change of Central America. Through her interesting annotations, the authoress helps us to visualize the process of internal transformation that Maryknoll suffered, and the participation of many of its members in that process of change given a quote of martyrdom. One of the nuns who worked in Nicaragua with the authoress, Sister Maura Clark, was murdered later in El Salvador together with others nuns as well a lay volunteer.
The book also offers a vision of the popular participation in the Nicaraguan revolution of 1979, an aspect little known and that the authoress was touched by. In 1992 she had to leave of Nicaragua and live in exile."
