Annette Idler book features in International Affairs Top Ten
A book by Annette Idler, who completed the DPhil at ODID, featured in a list of the top ten books by women reviewed in International Affairs in the previous 12 months, compiled for International Women’s Day 2020.
Borderland Battles: Violence, crime and governance at the borders of Colombia’s war was published by Oxford University Press in 2019.
Reviewer Tom Long said of the book, ‘Idler shows the diversity and fluidity of armed actors and the blurry and shifting relationships among them. Perhaps most strikingly, Idler presents the communities that are often overlooked when the focus is on the people with guns. Her impressive research unflinchingly shows how prolonged, multidimensional insecurity reshapes and often sunders the social fabric.’
