Book Description:
De Pablo Escobar, el famoso narcotraficante colombiano, hemos oido hablar miles de veces por su infinita capacidad para ejercer el mal, que llevo a organismos como la DEA a calificarlo como uno de los mas grandes criminales de la historia. Sin embargo, poco se habla de sus origenes familiares y sociales, de sus dimensiones humanas y de la manera como su personalidad fue evolucionando hasta llegar al desbordamiento. Alonso Salazar J. se sumergio en archivos y busco testimonios ineditos de familiares y vecinos, de amigos y enemigos, para entrelazar en un intenso relato, sin maniqueismo, versiones diversas y contradictorias que al final construyen un retrato mas completo del personaje. Asi, a lo largo de esta historia, Escobar aparece a veces como un guerrero que desperto la admiracion de sectores excluidos que lo consideraron un heroe, y otras, como un villano que hizo de la muerte un negocio, y luego la amplio, con el terror indiscriminado, para someter al Estado y a la sociedad. Aqui se presentan dimensiones intimas, cuadros complejos y humanos, de un hombre que buscaba desesperadamente identidad y reconocimiento, y que amo a su esposa y a sus hijos hasta perder la vida por ellos. Tambien encontramos una radiografia donde Escobar deja de ser un personaje brotado de la nada para convertirse en producto, por un lado, de una sociedad, como la colombiana, plagada de conflictos historicos y, por otro, del gran negocio del final del siglo XX: el trafico de cocai­na. Description in English: Today, the name Pablo Escobar is synonymous to violence. We have all heard thousands of stories of the infamous Colombian drug lord s multi-million dollar enterprise and his infinite capacity for brutality. Very little is known, however, of his origins and human dimension, and of the manner in which his personality gradually spiraled out of control. Antonio Salazar J. dug into archives and searched for previously unrevealed testimonies from relatives, neighbors, friends and enemies, to weave a riveting tale free of interpretations or contradicting versions to provide readers with a more complete portrait of the man behind the figure labeled by the DEA as one of the greatest criminals in history. In this way and throughout the story, Escobar appears at times as the warrior whom marginalized sectors of society considered a hero, the villain who made of death a lucrative business, and the man who was capable through sheer force of terror to subjugate both government and society. Salazar reveals intimate dimensions and complex human aspects of a man in desperate search of identity and recognition, and who so loved his wife and children he gave his life for them. This book can also be viewed as a map that pinpoints where Escobar ceases to be a nameless individual to become a product on the one hand of a society riddled with historical conflict, and on the other, of one of the most lucrative businesses in the late 20th Century: cocaine trafficking.
