From the Back Cover
Hispanic America is very picturesque. It has a great sense of humor and it jokes over its tragedy. Its full of laughter, joy, pain and frustration. The leadership which has the responsibility to mark the paths of our countries towards development, well-being, and hope, instead of satisfying the needs of the people, have reverted the hopes of a better future. Three topics are analyzed: Astuteness, as the mask of power. Democracy, as the frustration of something that you cannot fully live out. Moralistic principle, as a necessary element to create a new sociological scheme. The reality of the moment requires new leadership. The inhabitants of Latin America cry out in search of a leader.
