A Concise History of Bolivia
Herbert S. Klein
Price: $ 20

A comprehensive survey of Bolivia's economic, social, cultural, and political evolution from the arrival of early man in the Andes to the present, A Concise History of Bolivia highlights fundamental changes since the National Revolution of 1952 and the return of democracy in 1982 and its present day consequences. These changes include the introduction of universal education and the rise of the mestizos and Indian populations to political power for the first time in the nation's history. Herbert S.

He is the author of The Atlantic Slave Trade (Cambridge, 1999) and Haciendas and Ayllus: Rural Society in the Bolivian Andes (Stanford, 1992). Professor Klein's other titles include African Slavery in Latin America and the Caribbean (Oxford, 1988) and Parties and Political Change in Bolivia, 1880-1952 (Cambridge, 1962).
