This study questions the idea that the introduction of coffee to Latin America forced most people to become landless proles working on large plantations. It suggests that small and medium-sized growers in Nicaragua were vital to the economy, constituting the farming and land-owning majority.

It also sheds new light on the controversy surrounding landholding in Nicaragua during the Sandinista revolution.
