More Terrible Than Death: Massacre, Drugs, and America's War in Colombiaby Robin Kirk
Synopses & Reviews
More Terrible Than Death is a gripping work that maps the dramatic new relationship between the United States and Colombia in human terms, using portraits of the Colombians and Americans involved, the author's experiences in Colombia as a writer and human rights investigator and an insider's analysis of the political realities that shape the expanding war on drugs and the growing U.S. military presence there. Looking at the war from the ground up, interviewing and profiling human rights activists, guerrillas, and paramilitaries to explain how it has changed their lives, Robin Kirk gives depth and meaning to the headlines that leave unexplained the intimate dimension of the U.S./Colombian relationship.
The only contemporary history of Colombia and the drug war and "a vividly written and often mesmerizing first-hand account of the violence" —The Wall Street Journal
Violence, Drugs, and America's War in Colombia. New in paperback.
