Summary
"Journalistic account, set in a careful historical setting, of the impact of the Sendero Luminoso- inspired civil war from 1983 to the mid-1990s. Focuses on the civil defense brigades, Sendero's women in their prison setting, and campesino refugees in Lima who have fled their highland villages as a result of the war. Based on extensive interviews by a journalist who is fully familiar with the topic. One of the best sources for testimonials about the war from those most effected by it. Should not be overlooked by specialists seeking clear insights into the attitudes of both senderistas and those the movement terrorized"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
