In The Priest of Paraguaym, Hugh OShaughnessy, one of the most respected commentators on Latin America, tells the story of how Fernando Lugo ended the 60 year dictatorship of General Alfredo Stroessners Colorado party with the promise of a new, more egalitarian future, particularly for the countrys indigenous people. Hugh OShaughnessy traces Lugos life alongside the turbulent history of Paraguay -- from his early years in a family which fell victim to Stroessner to his release by the Vatican to follow a political calling. The book also locates Paraguay in the context of the changing landscape of Latin America politics as a whole.
