A Beauty That Hurts: Life and Death in Guatemala

by W. George Lovell - £12.95  Global Marketing Group Ltd (2020)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781771134545 | ISBN 10: 1771134542

When A Beauty That Hurts was published in 1995, Guatemala was still one of the world's most flagrant violators of human rights.
If any measure of peace has come to the country, George Lovell contends, it is a peace resembling war. Lovell revisits a seductive but tormented land to reprise, and revise, his classic account of the evil perpetrated by a military-dominated state on its indigenous Maya peoples.
A Beauty That Hurts frames the armed conflict that raged in Guatemala, off and on from 1960 to 1996, in historical, cultural, and political context. It also examines the shortcomings of the Peace Accord signed over two decades ago, concluding that the social and economic inequalities that triggered upheaval in the first place have yet to be addressed.
