Literatur zu Peru

Maoisten, Leninisten, Militärs, zivile Selbstverteidigungskomitees – bei kaum einem politisch motivierten Massenmord wirkten so viele unterschiedliche Akteure mit wie bei den bewaffneten Auseinandersetzungen in Peru. Entsprechend differenziert ist auch die wissenschaftliche Literatur zum Thema. Manche Autoren meinen, die übliche Einteilung in Täter und Opfer sei in Peru nicht möglich.
