Summary
In The Guatemalan Military Project, Jennifer Schirmer sheds light on the militarys role in Guatemala through a series of extensive interviews striking in their brutal frankness and revealing of the character of the oppressors. High-ranking officers explain in their own words their thoughts and feelings regarding opposition national security doctrine, democracy, human rights, and law. Additional interviews with congressional deputies, Guatemalan lawyers, journalists, social scientists, and even an ex-president give a full and vivid account of the Guatemalan power structure and ruling system
