Guatemala

Past and Present

Guatemala

In view of this inextricable connection between Indian and white in Guatemalan life, it is obvious that descriptions of native culture per se must remain incomplete unless accurate information about the nation’s social, economic, and political conditions and needs is made available. This latter task has been most admirably accomplished by Chester Lloyd Jones.

Professor Jones has divided his book into three sections: I)Political Development; II) Economic Advance; III) Social Life....Professor Jones’ evaluations of the contributions made by outstanding Guatemalan rulers, notable R. Carrere, J.R. Barrios, E. Cabrera, and the incumbent, J. Ubico, are marked for their impartiality and excellent judgment. -Morris Siegel, Columbia University
