Colombian history has been intertwined with world developments since well before the country’s independence. Many kinds of immigrants have shaped the nation; in addition, Colombians have understood their own reality by reference to places elsewhere. This dynamic is presented to readers in part VII through texts ranging from Antonio Nariño’s 1795 defense against the charge that he had translated the Declaration of the Rights of Man to an extract from a 2008 report by the Latin American Commission on Drugs and Democracy. Of special note is the presentation of fictional texts here, specifically texts by José Asunción Silva and Pedro Gómez Valderrama. Additionally, readers will gain a new perspective on the severing of Panama from Colombia and will have access to translated texts that provide examples of the way nongovernmental actors use the transnational sphere.
