"This book addresses some of the most important topics on violence throughout the Americas. It constitutes a good reader for students to learn what violence has brought to the continent and to decide what are the networks of meaning violence relates to." - Prof. Ileana Rodríguez, Humanities Distinguished Professor, The Ohio State University
