State building and conflict resolution in Colombia, 1986-1994 by Harvey F Kline ( )

Kline concludes that Barco's and Gaviria's efforts at conflict resolution were only partially successful and points to three major culprits: the lack of a tradition of peaceful conflict resolution in the country; the increased possibilities of conflict with urbanization and modernization; and the vast amount of money brought to the country by the drug trade.

Colombia : democracy under assault by Harvey F Kline ( Book )
6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The second edition of this comprehensive country profile begins with a discussion of the blend of Andean and Caribbean characteristics that defines Colombia, particularly in its geography, demography, and social structure. The author then presents a detailed political history that extends from before the arrival of the Spanish, including a portrait of early Amerindian populations, and continues through the turbulence of guerrilla, drug, and paramilitary violence in the 1980s and constitutional reforms of the 1990s. Kline argues that Colombia is now conscientiously attempting to alter historical patterns that have led it to play a key role in the international drug trade and to lead the world in the rate of homicides. A chapter on the economy offers a historical analysis of its evolution and examines economic and trade policies of recent presidents

Colombia is the fourth largest country in South America and one of the continent's most populous nations. It has substantial oil reserves and is a major producer of gold, silver, emeralds, platinum, and coal, along with a significant number of natural resources. Colombia has also been ravaged by a decades-long violent conflict involving outlawed armed groups, drug cartels, and gross violations of human rights. Recently the country has made some progress towards improving security, and President Santos has pledged to continue to improve security by passing laws to strengthen the judicial system; a reform of the manner of distributing royalties paid by mining and petroleum companies; and a tougher law against corruption. The Historical Dictionary of Colombia covers the history of Colombia through a chronology, an introductory essay, appendixes, and a bibliography. The dictionary section has over 1,000 cross-referenced entries on important personalities, politics, economy, foreign relations, religion, and culture. This book is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about Colombia
