Summary
This book examines the Peace Community of San José de Apartadó, in the conflict zone of Urabá, Colombia, from the perspective of critical, post-modern politics and anthropology. Telling the story of an emblematic grassroots social movement, it reveals hitherto unseen socio-economic dimensions to national political struggles. Proposing a methodology of ethnographic con-textualisation, the book reveals two narratives which co-exist in the Community’s collective identity: a ‘radical narrative’ constituted via their ‘rupture’ with the state, creating an internal logic through which they interpret politics; and an ‘organic narrative’ shaped by their relationship to the environment and their organisational processes, associated with a concept of ‘alternative’ community. This study, centred on cacao and the Community’s socio-economic project, offers an innovative way of looking at victim organisations and grassroots social movements. It will become essential reading not only to Latin American ethnographers and historians, but to all interested in conflict resolution and transitional justice. Gwen Burnyeat is a Wolfson PhD Scholar reading Anthropology at University College London, UK. She has worked in Colombia for seven years, has a Masters from the Universidad Nacional de Colombia where she also lectured in Political Anthropology, and her prize-winning ethnographic documentary ‘Chocolate of Peace’ was released in 2016 (www.chocolateofpeace.com).--
