Title: Vicisitudes Del Processo de Paz
Description: Bogota, Editorial La Abeja Negra. 1990, First Edition. Paperback, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Jacobo Arenas ("nom de guerre" of Luis Morantes, 23 January 1924 - 10 August 1990) was a Colombian guerrilla and ideological leader of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia, FARC). He was also one of the FARC figures involved in the organization and creation of the Patriotic Union political party in 1985. He was fluent in several languages other than his native Spanish, including English and Russian. Born at Bucaramanga in Santander Department, Jacobo Arenas spent most of his life involving himself in the activities of Marxist revolution in Colombia since the 1960s. During this time, he mostly lived in the mountains, jungles and remote villages. Arenas sometimes had to hide from those who wanted to capture him, including Colombian security forces, the CIA (which Arenas believed responsible for numerous alleged plots against him) and eventually paramilitary fighters as well. Arenas is thought to have followed the example of Che Guevara, who changed his way of life when he saw that the people of Latin America were facing hardships during a regionwide motorcycle trip when he was a senior year medical student. Jacobo Arenas admired Che Guevara and started his life as a revolutionary due to similar realizations, first through his experiences in the Colombian Communist Party (PCC) and finally in the FARC. Arenas is credited for helping to lay the foundation for the FARC's organizational structure and promoting its later development into what is usually considered as one of the strongest and longest lasting Marxist guerrilla movements in the world. To implement the policy of "standing steadily", he taught them in several areas, such as anthropology, international military law and counter techniques for any changing situation. Jacobo Arenas was seen as a hero among other Latin American Communist revolutionaries both inside and outside Colombia. For example, the ELN commander Antonio García once stated Jacobo Arenas was a hero to him, just as he considered Simón Bolívar, José Martí and Che Guevara as heroes, in an interview with a Latin American journalist. Some minor wear. Spanish text. Good.
