The Socialist Impulse

Charles D. Ameringer

University Press of Florida

This chapter discusses Augusto César Sandino, a young Nicaraguan working in the oil fields around Tampico around 1923 to 1926. He was inspired by Mexican socialism, and had hoped to take it back to his homeland and transform his country in the same way. Sandino's socialist impulse was fueled by revelation, intuition, and metaphysics. The discussion also looks at Sandino's later life as a successful general in the Liberal army during the Civil War in Nicaragua.

Keywords:   Augusto César Sandino, Mexican socialism, socialist impulse, Liberal army, general, Civil War, Nicaragua
