      Este primer tomo (de una Historia de la guerra milenaria que nunca fue continuada) cubre los dos primeros años de la lucha armada de Sendero; Gorriti se centra en las distintas jugadas políticas de tanto dirigentes estatales (minitros, jefes policiales, izquierdistas en el Congreso etc) como dirigentes senderistas, basándose en testimonios y entrevistas de tanto dirigentes como "bases". Para cualquier persona interesada en este periodo del país, el libro realmente la sitúa a una en lo que s [...]

      Gorriti's account of the beginning of the Shining Path insurrection is valuable mainly for his intimate knowledge of the bureaucratic ongoings of the period and first hand experiences. His actual analysis is inevitably marred by his petit-bourgeois, inner city upbringing and lifestyle. He's clearly a staunch anti-Communist and was even before the Shining Path showed up, and this influences every word that he writes. At the same time, he offers a nuanced view of the bureaucratic and interdepartme [...]
