When the war in El Salvador came to an end with the signing of the Peace Accords in Chapultepec, Mexico, in January 1992, there were many unresolved issues facing the country. This book in Oxfam’s Country Profile series gives an account of the history of El Salvador, and the inequalities and political corruption in Salvadoran society which were contributory causes of the long-running civil war. The ecological crisis facing the country, and the unresolved issues of land tenure are also examined.
