Summary
  • "Throughout the 1980s, Barricada, the official daily newspaper of the ruling Sandanista Front, played the standard role of a party organ, seeking to mobilize the Nicaraguan public to support the revolutionary agenda. Beyond the Barricades, however, reveals a story that is both more intriguing and much more complex. Even during this period of sweeping transformation and outside military siege, another, more professional agenda also motivated Barricada's journalists and editors."
  • "When the Sandanistas unexpectedly fell from power in the 1990 elections, Barricada gained a substantial degree of autonomy that allowed it to explore a more balanced and nuanced journalism "in the national interest." This new orientation, however, ran afoul of more orthodox party leaders, who gradually gained the upper hand in the bitter internal struggle that wracked the Sandanista Front in the early 1990s. The paper closed its doors in January 1998." "Adam Jones's study offers a behind-the-scenes look at Barricada's two decades of evolution and dissolution. It also presents an intimate portrait of a key revolutionary institution and the memorable individuals who were a part of it."--Cover
