From the 2008-2009 College of Santa Fe lecture series:
Rebels, Reformers and Revolutionaries
Journalist and author Francisco Goldman spent seven years in his home country of Guatemala investigating the murder of Bishop Juan Gerardi Conedera. His latest book The Art of Political Murder theorizes that the mastermind of the crime is still free—and operating at the highest levels of government. The New York Times calls it “an overdue indictment of brutal war criminals who were not just behind the one killing, but also contributed to a generation of atrocities.” Goldman reads from his novel and discusses Guatemala’s past and current political landscape.
