Product Details


“For U.S. readers accustomed to the distorted and incomplete imagery projected by the American mainstream media about Colombia, this book will be a revelation. Murillo’s first hand experience and extensive research give us an insightful analysis of the complex and tragic Colombian reality—of social and economic inequalities that grow amidst and armed conflict that has lasted more than forty years; of government policies confronting this reality; of the impact of U.S. policies in Colombian internal affairs; of the growing of U.S. military presence in the country. For the Colombian reader, ignorant of the dangers of the policies of national security and antiterrorism, promoted by Presidents Alvaro Uribe and George W. Bush, this book will also be enlightening.” –Clara Nieto, author of Masters of War: Latin America and U.S. Aggression from the Cuban Revolution through the Clinton Years

“Murillo’s work gives voice to those who are rarely heard from when explaining the complexities of Colombia-US relations. Through his years of research and interviews, Murillo allows us to learn about the conflict through the eyes of indigenous Colombians, trade union leaders, afro-Colombians, farmers and others, all of whom—those most affected by the 50-year civil war—layer this book with rich narratives.” –Deepa Fernandes, Free Speech Radio News
