"This latest work in the Oxford country study series on Latin America is an excellent addition to the collection. Scholars of Peru, specialists and non-specialists alike will benefit from the balanced discussion of economic, social, and political issues from the pre-Columbian period to the Fujimori administration. The 19th century and particularly the guano age and the Aristocratic Republic are given significant attention. Civil-military relations, often a somewhat neglected topic in surveys such as this, are also carefully analyzed. As with all the books in the Oxford series, this study offers a highly useful glossary, as well as maps, tables, some rare photos, and a thorough bibliography. Appropriate for classroom use"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.

About the Author:

Peter Flindell Klaren, Professor of History and International Affairs, The George Washington University.


"Klaren's history of Peru will stand as the standard survey of Peru for decades to come. The broad range of his research is quite impressive. Unlike most studies in the Oxford series, which heavily stress economic developments, often at the expense of social and political aspects, Klaren's
work offers a more balanced account. In addition, significant attention is paid to the role of the military in twentieth-centruy affairs. The bibliography is a model of completeness and will be a valuable aid to scholars."--Daniel M. Masterson, Professor, United States Navel Academy, Annapolis,
