"Managua Is Nicaragua" The Making of a Neoliberal City (1999) by Florence E. Babb

The Changing Face of the city of Managua in Nicaragua reflects the current government's desire to erase evidence of the revolutionary past and to present a welcoming environment for foreign investors and the national elite. The use of urban space is inflected by gender and power in the neoliberal era as women and low-income residents in general are removed from public view or located in marginal sites.  Ironically, harsh conditions may be catalyzing a more unified response from civil society to address the nation's problems.
