Ideal for the classroom. -- Brian Loveman, San Diego State University From the dark labyrinth of Colombia come these ten remarkable essays-each a rare combination of professional objectivity and political engagement-to explain a nation in the 1990s that has been at war with itself for a half century. The complex interplay of today's actors, the State, the guerrillas, the paramilitaries, the drug traffickers, civil society, women and men who are the victims and the survivors of these wars, and now increasingly the U.S. government, is dramatically revealed in these pages. -- Herbert Tico Braun, University of Virginia Authored by the most insightful Colombian intellectuals, this is an important, timely book that is essential to understanding the current crisis in Colombia and possible solutions. -- Catherine LeGrand, McGill University The editors of this work are to be commended for crafting an important book that synthesizes the extant literature showing the historical continuities that line Colombia's violent past with the present.
