Summary "Of Centaurs and Doves is the first English-language, book-length account of Guatemala's historic, but difficult, peace process. The author, Susanne Jonas, assesses the negotiation and content of the 1996 peace accords, and their implementation during the last years of the 20th century. Her analysis also highlights their significance beyond Guatemala - both for Central America over the long run and for the Americas as a whole - including U.S.-Latin American relations."--Jacket
