520    Astrid Bothmann examines historical, political and 
       socioeconomic factors that explain the absence of 
       transitional justice in Nicaragua from 1990 to 2012. The 
       author provides the first systematic analysis of the 
       reasons for the lack of transitional justice in Nicaragua 
       after the end of the Sandinista regime and the civil war 
       (1990) Contrary to other Latin American states of the 
       third wave of democratization, which put the perpetrators 
       of past crimes on trial, established truth commissions, 
       purged political and military officials, and made 
       reparations to the victims, Nicaragua's first post-war 
       government opted for a policy of national reconciliation 
       that was based on amnesty and oblivion. Subsequent 
       governments followed this course so that the past has not 
       been dealt with until today. Contents The Sandinista era: 
       Regime characteristics and human rights violations The 
       Chamorro government: Elite interests and the balance of 
       power The Aleman administration: The revival of
