Description

In its first edition, Herbert Klein's Bolivia won immediate acceptance even within Bolivia itself as the new standard history of this important nation. Surveying Bolivia's economic, social, cultural, and political evolution from the arrival of early man in the Andes to the present, the second edition also covers events of the last turbulent decade, including the economic collapse, the rise of an illegal economy based on cocaine, and the coming of middle-class Mestizos into social and political power. With a completely new final chapter and an updated bibliography, Bolivia remains an essential source for all those interested in Latin American history and politics.show more
