Under the 60-year dictatorship of General Alfredo Stroessner's Colorado party, wealth and power became concentrated in the hands of a small few; until elections in 2008 broke the party's hold on the country. This book tells the story of how Fernando Lugo, a bishop from a deprived diocese, swept to victory and what this means for his country.
