Abstract

The ideas that inspired the revolution in Nicaragua had their roots in the national past, in the history of a nation that strove to free itself from foreign domination and internal despotism. Sandinismo became the repository of national consciousness. It represented the culmination of a long process that finally allowed the Nicaraguan people to gain an understanding of their own history. It became the ideological vehicle through which the national past was recaptured by the Nicaraguan masses.
