Description

This book identifies the concept of the emancipatory network as a coordination of loose, discrete, and differentiated actors to explain how activists surmount overwhelming odds.



This is a brilliant and entertaining study of rural Colombia, showing how invisible social networks actually work to spark political action, often suddenly and surprisingly. It combines poetic ethnographic observation with high-level theories of political action.



Situated at the crossroad of social movement scholarship and Latin American Studies, a peak moment of political contention in Colombia's recent history is told with the accuracy of a social scientist, the vivid descriptions of an intrepid ethnographer and the empathy of a native son.



Louis Edgar Esparza is professor of sociology at California State University-Los Angeles.
