This collection explores the varieties of banditry in Latin America and provides a major comparative testing of Hobsbawm's model of the social bandit. Comprised of a unique collection of essays, it contributes to a more accurate understanding of bandit leaders and followers, as well as to the analysis of banditry as a social phenomenon.
