In "PROFETAS DEL ODIO", Gonzalo Portocarrero analyzes the armed conflict in Peru and its deepest roots, particularly the Maoist terrorist organization known as the Shining Path. He also studies the motivation, activity and mythical status of the group's leader, Abimael Guzmán, and relates the ideology to global developments and contexts.
