About this product
- DescriptionExploring in detail the misdirected and devastating impact that millions of dollars of annual U.S. military aid continues to have on the war-torn people of Colombia, this concise book offers a brief history of the country as well as an analysis of the complex forces driving Colombia's decades-old guerrilla war. Ultimately, Murillo argues that the conflict in Colombia is t about drugs, r guerrillas, r terrorism', but about the unwillingness of the country's elite to open up spaces for democratic participation in ecomic, social and political areas.'
