Michael J. LaRosa is associate professor of history at Rhodes College.German R. Mejia is professor of history at Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, Bogota.
Written by two leading historians, this book traces the history of Colombia thematically, covering the past two centuries. In ten interlinked chapters, the authors depart from more standard approaches by presenting a history of political, social, and cultural accomplishments within the context of Colombia's specific geographic and economic realities. Their emphasis on cultural development, international relations, and everyday life contrasts sharply with works that focus only on Colombia's violent past or dwell on a Colombian economy deeply dependent on narcotics, a tragic nation that barely functions. Instead, the authors emphasize Colombia's remarkable national cohesion and endurance since the early nineteenth-century wars for independence. Including aphoto essay, detailed chronology, and resource guide, this history presents a thoughtful, definitive interpretation of Colombia's past and present.
