From the PublisherThis book ... offers an important new interpretation of political developments in Colombia over the last two decades.— International Affairs
"Avilés has provided us with important insights and most of all reminded us of this important interrogation of democracy and its supposed friends."— Bulletin of Latin American Research
"There are many recent titles on Colombia, but this one offers something original by showing how the prevailing theoretical paradigm for democratization and civil-military relations is inadequate because it cannot explain the Colombian experience."— William I. Robinson, author of A Theory of Global Capitalism: Production, Class, and State in a Transnational World
"Books that bring together globalization, democracy, human rights, violence, and civil-military relations and examine them within a case-study approach are almost nonexistent. This book offers an insightful analysis of the Colombian conundrum from a more holistic perspective about these issues."— Nibaldo H. Galleguillos, McMaster University"
