Overview

This remarkable book tells the story of one man's kidnapping in Colombia from the first-person perspectives of all those involved: the guerrillas, the victim, his wife, his friends, and his brother-in-law, Herbert Braun. In this second edition, the author has added a new chapter that recounts the endurance of Colombia and Colombians in the face of escalating kidnapping and violence, explores the current political situation in Colombia, and reevaluates his own complex response to the guerrillas.

Editorial Reviews

Journal Of Interamerican Studies and World Affairs
Our Guerrillas, Our Sidewalks offers considerable insight into, and analysis of, contemporary Latin American history, touching upon politics, violence, and guerrilla activity. The author has an easy writing style: crisp, fast-paced, and designed to hold your attention to the very end.
— Mike LaRosa
Washington Report On The Hemisphere
An intense meditation on the tortured history of a Colombia marked by a decades-long bloodletting known as La Violencia. Narrated by the participants themselves, the story of the abduction masterfully intertwines the human drama with the historical context within which it unfolded.
The Americas: A Quarterly Review Of Inter-American Cultural
PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION

A profoundly moving and unrelentingly honest account of one very thoughtful individual's attempt to grapple with the meaning of violence and change in contemporary Colombian society. It is precisely the loss of political innocence that lends this book its moral force. Braun's misgivings and crisis of political belief are emblematic of many intellectuals on the left, but few would have the courage to expose these in such detail and honesty for public consumption. His readers are the richer for it.

Foreign Affairs
PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION

A grim and compelling account of the 1988 kidnapping of Texas-born oilman and longtime Colombia resident Jake Gambini by Marxist guerrillas. . . . The fast-paced narrative . . . has the makings of a movie script worthy of Alfred Hitchcock. . . . This memorable book takes the reader inside the Colombian revolutionary movements and politics, examines the psychology of conflict resolution, and shines with human perseverance and courage in the face of despair and adversity. Braun provides an intimate examination of a phenomenon rarely captured in print . . . but which remains very much part of the Latin American landscape.

Latin American Research Review - W. John Green
Herbert 'Tico' Braun demonstrates the intense ambivalence permeating the Columbian conflict in the updated and expanded edition in his 1994 book, Our Guerillas, Our Sidewalks. It chronicles the 1988 kidnapping by the Ejército de Liberación Nacional (ELN) of his brother-in-law, Jake Gambini, a Texas-born oilman and longtime resident of Columbia. . . . Braun writes in a journal-entry form, recording his raw feelings and cogent observations, and includes clippings from the press and other sources.

Tina Rosenberg
Tico Braun's brother-in-law Jake is kidnapped and it is Braun's job to negotiate his freedom. His book about it is much more than a tense thriller. Rich, wise, sharp-eyed, and human, it's the diary of a nightmare journey taken by Jake, his family, and Braun's beloved Colombia.
