Territorial Rule in Columbia and the Transformation of the Llanos Orientales

by Jane M. Rausch

Pub date: 9/3/2013

The discovery of oil in the 1980s turned Columbia’s “primitive” Llanos Orientales into the fastest growing region in the country, permanently altering this tropical grassland. Jane Rausch surveys 60 years of history (1946 – 2010) in the Llanos to examine how the Colombian government’s Llanos policies affected the indigenous people, through political, economic, and social changes.
