Description
This volume meant for general readers outlines the culture and customs of Nicaragua: its land, people, and history, including its indigenous groups and mestizo characteristics; religion; social customs; folklore, myths, and legends; literature and poetry; media; cinema and photography; performing and visual arts (music, art, and dance); and architecture and housing. Incorporated are topics such as women's rights, AIDS, healthcare, education, the gay community, and sports. Much of the information for the book was drawn from interviews with people who have a knowledge of the country's popular culture and how it is tied to identity and resistance.
