Karen Kampwirth’s Women and Guerrilla Movements is an exceptional . Recent upheavals in Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Chiapas were all made possible, in part, by previous shifts in gender relations.

Karen Kampwirth’s Women and Guerrilla Movements is an exceptional contribution to revolutionary studies. This book is about the women who joined revolutionary movements in Nicaragua, El Salvador, and the Mexican state of Chiapas; how they came to become guerrilla activists; and how that experience changed their lives. I hope to show that our understanding of revolutionary movements is inevitably poorer if we try to understand those movements in gender-free terms; revolution in the real world has never been gender-free.

Kampwirth s book will chart a new course for us to study women as individuals, not just as a group, with regard to political and social revolutions. A book that superbly captures the real lives of women revolutionaries without over-romanticizing the revolutions or the roles of women. -Tracy Fitzsimmons, Shenandoah University.

This book is about the women who joined revolutionary movements in Nicaragua, El Salvador, and the Mexican state of Chiapas; how they came to become guerrilla.

The revolutionary movements that emerged frequently in Latin America over the past century promoted goals that included overturning dictatorships, confronting economic inequalities, and creating what Cuban revolutionary hero Che Guevara called the "new man." But in fact, many of the "new men" who participated in these movements were not men. Thousands of them were women. This book aims to show why a full understanding of revolutions needs to take account of gender. Karen Kampwirth writes here about the women who joined the revolutionary movements in Nicaragua, El Salvador, and the Mexican state of Chiapas, about how they became guerrillas, and how that experience changed their lives. In the last chapter she compares what happened in these countries with Cuba in the 1950s, where few women participated in the guerrilla struggle. Drawing on more than two hundred interviews, Kampwirth examines the political, structural, ideological, and personal factors that allowed many women to escape from the constraints of their traditional roles and led some to participate in guerrilla activities. Her emphasis on the experiences of revolutionaries adds a new dimension to the study of revolution, which has focused mainly on explaining how states are overthrown.

The text shows the results of 10 years research onsite in those countries mentioned in the title. Kampwirth provides an account of an underappreciated aspect of the guerrillas. The significant involvement of women at many levels of the movements. She was able to interview women who had been active participants, since the events covered were as recent as the 1970s. While in fact most of the struggles happened in the 1980s.

For future historians, this book will be valuable as original source material. It may well be that the definitive assessment of the turbulant events of the 1980s and 1990s has yet to be written. We are still too close. The problem is that by the time that assessment happens, many of the participants will likely be dead. And the dominant documentation thus far existing focuses on the top level commanders, who are mostly male.

It is a wonderful book, and I have had it for months. I would further recommend it to anyone!!!!!

Contrary to Amazon's website (and despite my repeated requests for correction), Women and Guerrilla Movements is not "out of print," in fact it is widely available and has sold well, perhaps because it has always been reviewed very positively by others.

Amazon failed to restock Women and Guerrilla Movements at the time it went into paperback but it is available in the paperback edition from all other major booksellers. It would be nice if Amazon would use the accurate phrase "out of stock" instead of the inaccurate phrase "out of print." It would be even nicer if Amazon would also restock the book.
