In surveying development, urban growth, informal settlements, and changing cityscapes over several decades, the author argues that apparently distinct policies, whether unleashed under the revolutionary government of Jacobo Arbenz or subsequent right-wing dictatorships, were all different elements in modernist development. The author explores the workings of ordinary life, through novels, archival research, the history of meat processing, and the knowledge of the city's streets to document the human side of dysfunctional urban growth."@en ;
