summary
Rafael Carrera (1814-1865) ruled Guatemala from about 1839 until his death. Among Central America's many political strongmen, he is unrivaled in the length of his domination and the depth of his popularity. This 'life and times' biography explains the political, social, economic, and cultural circumstances that preceded and then facilitated Carrera's ascendancy and shows how Carrera in turn fomented changes that persisted long after his death and far beyond the borders of Guatemala.
