LAS HUELLAS DE B'ALAM
By Estuardo Zepeta

This collection of newspaper pieces by Maya journalist Estuardo Zapeta is a significant historical document. The essays date from the years leading up to the signing of the Peace Accords in December 1996, which brought an end to the Guatemalan civil war. They reflect, from a Mayan perspective, on various aspects of the political, economic, and social situation of indigenous communities during these difficult times. Both controversial and critical, they make an important contribution to the study of recent international history and intercultural relations in the Americas. Suitable for upper level Spanish courses in Latin American culture or indigenous writing. Excellent background resource for instructors in many fields.
