In 1984, Nobel Peace Prizewinner and indigenous rights activist RigobertaMenchuacute; published I, RigobertaMenchuacute; , her autobiographical account of life in Guatemala undera military dictatorship to great acclaim. The book rapidly transformedthe study and understanding of modern Guatemalan history. Since then,her memoir has increasingly become a target for rightwing historians andcommentators seeking to discredit Menchuacute;rs"s account and to deny thegenocide carried out by the Guatemalan military regime with US support.Greg Grandin, in this crucial accompaniment to Menchuacute;rs"s work, takes onher critics to set the story straight. He investigates the historical contextand political realities that underlie Menchuacute;rs"s past and the ongoing debatesurrounding it, in this substantial new work on Guatemalan history.
