The authors explore lessons learned from specific international service interventions in Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Honduras, with some attention to Costa Rica and Guatemala. The collection provides a nuanced, contextualized, historically evolving portrait of the increasingly popular practice of "voluntourism" with an eye toward pushing that practice toward meaningful social change."@en ;
