"Hristov's rich description of the Colombian conflict with information based on the author's fieldwork presents a valuable addition to the literature and presents an analysis that has become rare in the age of neoliberal ideological hegemony."
"This is a well-researched resource examining paramilitary-state repression and the underlying political and economic conditions in Colombia that drive it."
"By making explicit the connections between neoliberal policies and paramilitarism, and the use of violence as a means of resource acquisition and the facilitation of a climate for its continuation, Hristov powerfully refutes attempts to oversimplify the conflict in Colombia and its justification as part of the `war on terror.'"
"The description of Colombia that Hristov provides is expressed in an almost `structural-functional' account of the way in which neoliberalism and paramilitarism are mutually supportive, how large numbers of marginalized and disadvantaged people are dispossessed and forcibly removed from their subsistance economies, where they are replaced by the exploitation of Colombia's ample natural resources by dominantly foreign capital ably abetted by cunning comprador elites."
"Hopefully Blood & Capital will receive the attention that it deserves, and Hristov's meticulous research can be used to truly disarm the state coercive apparatus in Colombia."
"The connections between the paramilitary and members of the government, the judiciary and armed forces in fact have been well documented, but (Jasmin Hristov) adds to this documentation a very sharp class analysis of the political dynamics involved."
