A Transnational Analysis of Representations of the US Filibusters in Nicaragua, 1855-1857 Hardback
by Andreas Beer
This book investigates how the encounter between the U.S. filibuster expedition in 1855-1857 and Nicaraguans was imagined in both countries.
The author examines transnational media and gives special emphasis to hitherto neglected publications like the bilingual newspaper El Nicaraguense.
The study analyzes filibusters' direct influence on their representations and how these form the basis for popular collective memories and academic discourses.
