Looking for the other side of Iran Contrahistory

Has there been a definitive account of the Iran-Contra Scandal written from the vantage point of either Iran or Nicaragua?

I am NOT looking for an American account that incorporates this material in, but rather a history that situates itself from the perspective of the other participating countries (It does not have to be a right wing "Contra" history, of course, but something that shows the Nicaraguan viewpoint).
Bonus Points if the writer either had insider knowledge or good access to someone who participated in the process.

Have you considered contacting the history department at the University of Managua? I'm sure that someone there would talk to you.
