      Miami Herald, Op-Ed, Oct 17, 2014

      KPFK, Radio Interview, Jun 20, 2014

      After Colombia's 2-1 victory over the Ivory Coast, I spoke with Meleiza Figueroa of KPFA's "The People's Game," a show about politics and society during the 2014 World Cup.

My book The Frontier Effect, forthcoming from Cornell University Press, is about how outlaw combatant groups funded by the drug trade engage in unexpected forms of state-building in a violent frontier zone of northwest Colombia.
