Reviews

"This anthology is a wonderful addition to any course on Latin America and Peru and is accessible to both graduates and undergraduates. I have used pieces from this book for my undergraduate courses and plan to incorporate at least one of the pieces new to this second edition into my courses in the near future. The book should also be of interest to nonacademics interested in learning more about Peru."
--M. Cristina Alcalde, "The Latin Americanist"
“A livelier, more literate introduction to a foreign world could not be hoped for. A Peruvian trove, indeed; so much that one hardly knows where to begin dipping into its treasures.”—Alma Guillermoprieto, author of "Dancing with Cuba: A Memoir of the Revolution"
“This is an extremely deep, broad, and insightful collection on Peru.”—Jorge Castañeda, author of "Utopia Unarmed: The Latin American Left after the Cold War" and former Foreign Minister of Mexico
