A Manual of the Conflict in Colombia.

Umbrage Editions, 2011. 144 pp., Color illustrations throughout, 17½x11".
Based upon two decades of in-depth investigative reporting in Colombia's conflict zones, this explosive volume integrates text, photography, and design to communicate the horrors that paramilitary groups, such as the 'United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia' (as well as the other sides of the conflict in response to the violence), inflicted and continue to inflict on Colombia. An instant classic of journalism and South American political history.
