Santa Fe New Mexican

Rachel Kleinfeld is a senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, and she’s author of a brilliant new book, A Savage Order: How the World’s Deadliest Countries Can Forge a Path to Security, in which she examines some of the world’s deadliest regions, including Colombia, Sicily, the American South, the Republic of Georgia, and Bihar, India—all places that faced epidemic levels of violence from mafias, drug cartels, organized crime, paramilitaries, and even the government itself—and analyzes what it took to come out of violence and into relative peace and stability.

She will be speaking on Thursday, February 7, at 5:30, at the Hotel Santa Fe, sponsored by the Santa Fe Council on International Relations.
