"The Colombia Reader's editors have done extraordinary work, especially by including the voices of those who are historically marginalized or omitted in traditional histories of Colombia. In the past I have had to rely on texts I have personally translated for use in my courses if I wanted students to think beyond the narrow categories typically used to define Colombia's history. Solving this scarcity of translated texts, The Colombia Reader is a great teaching resource." — Mary Roldán, author of Blood and Fire: La Violencia in Antioquia, Colombia, 1946–1953
"In this stunning textual and visual compilation of daily historical moments, the Colombian people come alive, so that they may finally be understood alongside their fellow Latin Americans." — Herbert Braun, author of Our Guerrillas, Our Sidewalks: A Journey into the Violence of Colombia
