Summary: The story of Guillermo Monroy, a feared Colombian bandit of the late nineteenth century.
Historical Notes: The late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries saw the beginnings of modernization in Colombia. However, the economic progress came at great cost. Specific populations saw themselves displaced or dispossessed from their lands for the sake of economic development. This pamphlet is a valuable source for this important process in the history of Colombia. (See for example, Marco Palacios, Between Legitimacy and Violence: A History of Colombia, 1875-2002. Durham: Duke University Press, 2006)
