The Art of Political Murder—Who Killed the Bishop?

The Open Society Institute hosted a discussion and reception with Francisco Goldman, author of The Art of Political Murder: Who Killed the Bishop? (Grove Press).

The Art of Political Murder takes the reader deep inside the phantasmagoric and upside-down world of a broken state, where powerful CIA-trained military intelligence chiefs have gone from fighting guerrillas to working for drug cartels; where judges scheme against the law; where honest justice workers are vilified in the media while convicted murderers are given newspaper columns; a “democracy” where real power is clandestine, and society is controlled through blackmail, extortion, omnipresent informers, violence, and fear.


Aryeh Neier, President of the Open Society Institute, moderated.
