Summary "One calm October evening in 1980, Guatemalan journalist Irma Flaquer was chased through the streets, bullets flying, and then dragged from her car. She was never seen again. Founder of the first Guatemalan Human Rights Commission and a crusading reporter who would not be silenced, Flaquer endured beatings, car bombings, and office shootings, continuing her call for freedom until her abduction and presumed murder. A haunting harbinger of the threat many journalists face today, Disappeared presents a portrait both of a vibrant visionary and of an emerging nation struggling against the strictures of Cold War politics and the long arm of American foreign policy."--BOOK JACKET
