About this product
- DescriptionIn the Wake of War assesses the consequences of civil war for democratization in Latin America, focusing on questions of state capacity. Contributors focus on seven countries-Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Peru-where state weakness fostered conflict and the task of state reconstruction presents multiple challenges. In addition to case studies, the book explores cross-cutting themes including the role of the international community in supporting peace, the explosion of post-war criminal and social violence, and the value of truth and historical clarification. This book completes a fifteen-year project, Program on Comparative Peace Processes in Latin America, which also led to the 1999 publication of the book Comparative Peace Processes in Latin America.
