Yet another book on Peru's frightening Shining Path insurgency, this one by a British journalist who lived in Peru from 1988 to 1992. Illuminating, particularly on the Shining Path's international activities, but ultimately inconclusive, this volume ends with the September 1992 capture of the Shining Path's Marxist leader, Manuel Abimael Guzmán, by members of the antiterrorism unit of Peru's police.
