(The Fourth Sword). There is no book about Sendero Luminoso’s leader Abimael Guzmán, neither in Peru nor abroad. Information on terrorist gangs is mostly confidential and whatever is published shows little information and plenty of propaganda. Hence, the
difficulty in answering such questions as: How does a terrorist leader shape his ideology? How does he recruit his subordinates? What kind of actions can endanger the Government without costly logistics or a regular army? Which mistakes could make terrorists and how would the Government benefit from them? The author has interviewed journalists, policemen, secret agents, terrorists, Guzman’s folks, History researchers etc., to tell not only the story of a man, but also the history of a war while setting the scenario that leads us to Peru, Latin America as a whole and maybe the Middle East.
