Problems of a Divided Society Cultures Guatemala-Richman_cover

Problems of a Divided Society: The Conflicting Cultures of Guatemala

Guatemala is a land of enchantment. It is enchanting because of its ancient ruins, its beautiful mountains, and its crystal-blue lakes-but most of all because of its people. But it is sad to say that Guatemalans are largely not understood, even among themselves. The country has two major cultures: the Indian and the Latin. These cultures differ greatly, even though they are found in the same country, and often within the same town.
