By Molly Todd

During the civil conflict that wracked El Salvador from the mid-1970s to the early Nineties, the Salvadoran army attempted to stamp out dissidence and insurgency via an competitive crusade of crop-burning, kidnapping, rape, killing, torture, and grotesque physically mutilations. whilst human rights violations drew global recognition, repression and conflict displaced greater than 1 / 4 of El Salvador’s inhabitants, either contained in the kingdom and past its borders. Beyond Displacement examines how the peasant campesinos of war-torn northern El Salvador answered to violence through taking to the hills. Molly Todd demonstrates that their flight used to be no longer hasty and chaotic, yet was once a planned approach that grew out of an extended heritage of collective association, mobilization, and self-defense.
