The title of the book itself announces Stephen Ferry’s completeness: "Violentology" is directly derived from the name of sociologists specializing in Colombian political violence and "manual" is borrowed from the technical vocabulary. The situation in Colombia is not a simple drug war. Ferry, who has collaborated with Colombian specialists, reporters and researchers, takes a comprehensive approach to the conflict, from the density of the texts to the variety of documentary resources, and the way he is able to put the history into perspective.
The introductory timeline traces Colombia’s civil war back to 1810.
