Captured Peace · Elites and Peacebuilding in El Salvador
By Christine J. Wade

The most comprehensive, up-to-date book on Salvadoran politics of the last twenty-five years.

“Those who study El Salvador closely recognize more deeply the limitations of the peace accords in transforming its politics, economics, and society. This book does a fabulous job explaining how the peace accords failed in several important ways primarily because of the intransigence of local elites…Christine Wade has produced the most comprehensive, up-to-date book on Salvadoran politics of the last twenty-five years.”

Michael E. Allison, associate professor of political science, University of Scranton
