Product Overview

How does the rest of the world see the United States? In these critical essays on culture and politics in North and South America Garavito turns a mirror on both lands to see the cultural blind spots of each, knowing that misunderstanding the actions of the Other can create an enemy. He is one of Latin America's best essayists on international economic and political issues. His incisive articles on the elite of his homeland, Colombia, led to death threats and his eventual exile from that country. He came to the United States protected by the Cities of Asylum program for writers living under threat. In Bogota Garavito was Professor at the Universidad del Rosario, and in the United States he has been Lecturer and Visiting Artist at the University of New Mexico. He is the author of a dozen books and a winner of Simon Bolivar Prize, recognizing his work in journalism and literature.
