Críticas:

"'Paradise in Ashes'... deserves wide reading, if only to generate sympathy for the poorest - and sometimes most traumatized - among us." - San Francisco Chronicle "Beatriz Manz has written a remarkable book.... A compelling story clearly told, based on thorough research and direct, first-hand knowledge." - Jml of Latin American Stds "Paradise in Ashes is a good read and essential to anyone who hopes to understand what we can only hope will be the last genocide in the Americas." - National Catholic Reporter"

Reseña del editor:

"Paradise in Ashes" is a deeply engaged and moving account of the violence and repression that defined the murderous Guatemalan civil war of the 1980s. In this compelling book, Beatriz Manz - an anthropologist who spent over two decades studying the Mayan highlands and remote rain forests of Guatemala - tells the story of the village of Santa Maria Tzeja, near the border with Mexico. Manz writes eloquently about Guatemala's tortured history and shows how the story of this village - its birth, destruction, and rebirth - embodies the forces and conflicts that define the country today. Drawing on interviews with peasants, community leaders, guerrillas, and paramilitary forces, Manz creates a richly detailed political portrait of Santa Maria Tzeja, where highland Maya peasants seeking land settled in the 1970s. Manz describes these villagers' plight as their isolated, lush, but deceptive paradise became one of the centers of the war convulsing the entire country. After their village was viciously sacked in 1982, desperate survivors fled into the surrounding rain forest and eventually to Mexico, and some even further, to the United States, while others stayed behind and fell into the military's hands. With great insight and compassion, Manz follows their flight and eventual return to Santa Maria Tzeja, where they sought to rebuild their village and their lives.
