Insights into El Salvador

Here are two recent, lengthy articles available on the web which discuss the current realities and paradoxes in El Salvador:

  • Letter From El Salvador: Peter Davis writes in The Nation about the politics and economics of El Salvador. "El Salvador is a series of issues as much as it is a country, and to the degree it is a country it is one where contradictions and extremes rule. As well as paradox."

  • For Two Remote Salvadorian Villages, the Iraq War Hits Close to Home: Jacob Wheeler has an extended version on of the earlier San Francisco Chronicle story about the family of El Salvador's soldier killed in Iraq and the community where he lived.
