Based on field-work in Colombia’s regions, the study provides a history
of the conflict, compares it to other historical and contemporary
case-studies, examines the war from the perspectives of the government

capabilities (notably in intelligence and the use of airpower and
special forces), and explains the economic dimension in terms both of
historical exclusion and ongoing attempts at growth and inclusion.
