About this item

¿Guerra o paz? A través de la pluma de Santiago Gamboa un recorrido histórico sobre este controvertido tema.Santiago Gamboa se propone, con este ensayo, hacer un aporte a la reflexión que hoy se plantea el país acerca de los temas del conflicto y la reconciliación. Y lo hace por medio de un rico e ilustrador viaje através de la historia, para mostrar las distintas caras de la guerra y el camino que otros pueblos han recorrido en la construcción de la paz, la creación más elaborada y valiosa de la civilización. La paz, afirma Gamboa, será posiblemente #el más decisivo y contundente de todos los combates librados por la sociedad colombiana en las últimas décadas#.#A lo largo de este libro pretendo interrogar, desde una perspectiva humanista y cultural, el modo como la guerra ha ido transformando a las sociedades y lo que ha significado la paz en algunos momentos claves. Y aunque no soy un historiador ni un teórico, he querido ver los avatares de esa experiencia a través de la historia, la literatura, la filosofía e incluso las religiones; también, en algún caso concreto, desde mi propia experiencia directa de cronista y viajero curioso.#SANTIAGO GAMBOAENGLISH DESCRIPTIONWar or peace? From Santiago Gamboa comes a historical journey through this controversial topic. In this essay, Santiago Gamboa sets out to contribute to the reflection that awaits the country about the topics of conflict and reconciliation. And he does it via a rich and illustrative journey through history, to show the different faces of war and the path that others have traveled in the construction of peace, civilization’s most elaborate and valuable creation. Peace, affirms Gamboa, “will possibly be the most decisive and overwhelming of all the battles fought by Colombian society in the last few decades.”“Throughout this book, I aim to examine, from a humanist and cultural perspective, the way that war has transformed societies and what peace has signified in certain key moments. And while I’m neither a historian nor a theorist, I have tried to see the avatars of that experience through history, literature, philosophy, and even religion; and also, in a particular case, from my own direct experience as a journalist and curious traveler.” –Santiago Gamboa
