Latin American politics and development by Howard J Wiarda( Book )
53 editions published between 1979 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,995 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This definitive text has been updated throughout and features contributions from experts in the field, including three entirely new chapters on Bolivia, Ecuador, and Mexico. Other new material addresses the economic crisis in Argentina; Brazil's continued economic and political progress; Chile's successful -- if still tentative -- combination of democracy, economic growth, and social equity; the continued challenge to Colombia's political system posed by guerillas, drug traffickers, and paramilitaries; Venezuela's continued flight from liberal democracy under Hugo Chavez; and Mexico's ongoing "civil war" as criminal organizations fight each other and the Mexican state to run drug trafficking and other criminal operations. In addition to detailed country-by-country chapters, Latin American Politics and Development provides a comprehensive regional overview. Five foundational chapters by the editors cover the context of Latin American politics, the pattern of historical development, interest groups and political parties, government machinery, the role of the state and public policy, and the struggle for democracy."--Publisher's website

During their presidencies, both Virgilio Barco Vargas (1986-90) and Cesar Gaviria Trujillo (1990-94) sought to end the long-running armed disturbance by the leftist guerillas, narcotics traffickers, and paramilitary groups who were controlling many parts of Colombia. Their attempts to use peaceful means - including indirect bargaining, changes to the constitution to increase democracy, and modifications in the judicial system to make it more effective in suppressing the country's lawbreaking elements - marked a strategic break with the government's 150-year reliance on force

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
