South America: Colombian Crossroads

An academic overview of the modern history of Colombia.

South America:  Colombian Crossroads

Full Description

Many factors have shaped modern Colombia, pulling in one direction toward global integration and tugging in another direction toward autonomy from the broader world. Modern economic, social, and political thought have formed a caste system within the state. Violent narco-insurgency has resulted from the differences experienced by different classes of Colombian society. The overlay of the black, narcotics based economy (illegal drug trafficking and associated criminal activities) influences every layer of society. This vibrant, but volatile mixture forms a tapestry that keeps Colombia on a path flirting with either a grand destiny or catastrophic destruction.
