Poets and Prophets of the Resistance

Intellectuals and the Origins of El Salvador's Civil War

Joaquín M. Chávez

  • Expands and challenges the dominant narrative of the Salvadoran insurgency and civil war, emphasizing the central role played by various cohorts of urban and peasant intellectuals
  • Examines the overlooked roles that both peasant leaders—particularly in Chalatenango, a northern region in El Salvador—and Catholic intellectuals played in the origins of the Salvadoran insurgency
  • Introduces the notion of a "pedagogy of revolution" as a category of historical analysis, which informed the ideology and politics of both the insurgency and revolutionary social movements in 1970s El Salvador
  • Examines the reverberations of the Cuban revolution and U.S. Cold War foreign policy in Salvadoran politics in the 1960s and 1970s
  • Draws on new interviews and previously unavailable archival sources to offer fresh insights into the history of the civil war in El Salvador
