Sinopsis:

The majority of Latin American revolutionaries and guerrillas have now laid down their weapons and opted to participate in that region's democratic processes. What brought about this transformation? When the AK-47s Fall Silent brings together for the first time many of these former Latin revolutionaries from both sides of the conflicts—who tell their own stories, in their own words.

From the Publisher:

The majority of Latin American revolutionaries and guerrillas have now laid down their weapons and opted to participate in that region’s democratic processes. What brought about this transformation? When the AK-47Ks Fall Silent brings together for the first time many of these former Latin revolutionaries—to tell their own stories, in their own words.

Section one, "Revolutionaries," presents five essays or autobiographical commentaries by former revolutionaries whose personal experiences span Central America’s twentieth century conflicts—from the rebellion of the Sandino in the 1920s to the mid-1990s resolution of the war in El Salvador. Section two, "Guerrillas," includes commentaries by five guerrillas of the Nicaraguan resistance. Section three, "The Dangers of Peace," features three international public servants who have dedicated their lives to trying to resolve conflicts.

The contributors include Jose Obidio "Pepe" Puente—from a family of revolutionaries, the "living link" between the original Mexican revolution and half a dozen later revolutionary movements; Don Alejandro Perez Bustamante—personal bodyguard to legendary Nicaraguan general Cesar Augusto Sandino and the person to whom the namesake of Nicaragua’s revolutionary entrusted his very life; Plutarco Hernandez—for more than a decade a national director of the Sandinista front against Somoza who later turned against the revolution; Encarnacion Baldivia—a legendary peasant guerrilla leader and a founding leader of the MILPAS guerrilla movement that was the precursor to the contras; Oscar Sobalvarro—the last chief of staff of the main contra army, the FDN; and Saris Perez—one of the best-known contra women warriors.

Contributors who tried to resolve these conflicts and the underlying social conditions beneath them include Myles Robert Rene Frechette, former United States ambassador to Colombia; Major General Ian Douglas, original commander of the U.N.’s International Observer Force in Central America; and Sergio Caramanga, director of the Organization of American States office in Nicaragua.

When added together, the former revolutionaries and guerrillas whose thoughts are collected here have almost 250 years experience at revolution and guerrilla warfare. When the AK-47s Fall Silent is their story.

T. Charles Brown, a Hoover research fellow, has forty-five years’ international experience as a marine, career diplomat, and now scholar, concentrated in Central America, the Caribbean, and Mexico, much of it related to five low-intensity conflicts, revolutionary activities, counterterrorism, and international peace processes.
