Dr Annette Idler Recognized in International Affairs ‘Top 10 Books by Women’


Annette’s recent book Borderland Battles: Violence, Crime, and Governance at the Edges of Colombia’s War (OUP, 2019) is featured on the list of International Affairs’ Top 10 Books 2020 on the occasion of International Women’s Day.

From the International Affairs review by Tom Long: “Idler shows the diversity and fluidity of armed actors and the blurry and shifting relationships among them. Perhaps most strikingly, Idler presents the communities that are often overlooked when the focus is on the people with guns. Her impressive research unflinchingly shows how prolonged, multidimensional insecurity reshapes and often sunders the social fabric.”
