Conflict and the Legacy of Exclusion
This is the first work exploring the colonial roots, modern context, trajectory and legacy of the Shining Path insurgency in the region of Huancavelica, Peru, one of Peru’s most impoverished and Quechua-speaking regions. The use of terroristic violence to implement a revolutionary and exclusivist ideology was without precedent in Latin America, presaging later movements such as ISIS. Integrating interviews, testimonials, survey data and the vast primary and secondary literature on the insurgency, this work examines how Huancavelican communities experienced and continue to shoulder the consequences of an exterminatory conflict thirty years after the insurgency was largely, although not entirely, defeated.
Series Editor:
The Caribbean Series at Brill offers monographs and edited volumes by intellectuals from academe and the public sphere engaging the Caribbean as place, as idea, as theoretical corpus. This geographical region includes the Caribbean archipelago but also continental spaces in the Americas, such as Venezuela, Colombia, Central America, Mexico, and the United States, whose geopolitical proximity, historical ties, and demographic and cultural interrelations are essential for a broader, multi-layered understanding of the Caribbean across time, including its diasporas in Europe and the Western hemisphere.

The series covers all topics in the arts, humanities, and social sciences, including interdisciplinary works, addressing urgent issues such as decolonizing perspectives on modernity; diasporic identities; questions of representation; Afro-Caribbean traditions; indigeneity; race, class, gender, and LGBTQ+; migration and human rights; debts and reparations; the legacies of imperialism; and the effects of neo-liberal policies, among others.

In addition to original work in English, it welcomes proposals for translated versions of high-quality research monographs originally published in a language other than English and/or out of print. Manuscripts are subject to a double-blind peer-review process to ensure scholarly breadth, rigor, and excellence. Brill’s long-standing distribution network among academic libraries and conferences around the world guarantees a wide dissemination of its titles.

The Caribbean Series was established by the KITLV (Royal Netherlands Institute of Southeast Asian and Caribbean Studies). In collaboration with the KITLV, Brill also publishes the esteemed New West Indian Guide.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals following these guidelines by email to the publisher, Chunyan Shu, or the series editor, Sophie Maríñez.
