Spanning the years of civil war in Guatemala, "Unfinished Conquest" portrays an embattled country facing the third cycle of a conquest that began when the conquistadors arrived in the sixteenth century.

Last Lords of Palenque by Victor Perera Last Lords of Palenque, Paperback (April 1986)

A community of 250 whose genealogy has been obscured by the absence of a written tradition, the Lacandones may nevertheless be traced back linguistically and culturally to the great Maya civilization. This book offers an account of life among the Lacandon Indians of Naha in southern Mexico and chronicles their imperiled Mayan culture.
