Summary

Oscar Arias Sánchez was awarded the 1987 Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to end the civil unrest raging in several Central American countries at that time. Then the president of Costa Rica, Sánchez was the main architect of the Esquipulas II Accords, a plan to promote democracy and peace in the region during a time of great turmoil and outside influence in the midst of the cold war. This in-depth biography, which traces Oscar Arias Sánchez's lifetime, his path to the prize, and his continuing efforts to promote progress in his homeland, is an inspirational tale that shows how hope and dedication can triumph in the face of uncertainty and conflict.
