Publisher Description

Colombia is usually associated with drug cartels, guerrilla wars and

violence. But the biggest Spanish-speaking country after Mexico is changing.

The economy is already larger, by some measures, than South Africa’s; if

peace talks are successful, it will do better still. This free ebook is an

indispensable guide to the new Colombia, reproducing a magazine published

earlier this year by the Financial Times.

FT writers interview President Juan Manuel Santos and profile both the

Bogota establishment and young Colombians to watch. They explore the

development challenges of the Colombian outback and the rise of a new

national export - security expertise ranging from bullet proof fashion to

mercenaries. Essays by Oscar Naranjo, former head of the national police,

and Malcolm Deas, historian, provide further context.
