9781900039994: Evo Morales and the Movimiento al Socialismo in Bolivia: The First Term in Context, 2005-2009


This volume reflects on the first administration of Evo Morales and his party, the Movimiento al Socialismo (MAS), the history of the movement, and Bolivian politics and society under the MAS since 2005. Morales has been widely touted as the first indigenous leader of a South American country since the European Conquest.


The book originated in a November 2009 symposium, held when Bolivia's presidential elections were imminent, with the support of the Bolivia Information Forum at the Institute of the Americas (ISA) in London. It includes chapters from contributors to the symposium and additional essays commissioned from other leading experts.

Bolivia's New Constitution and Its Implications 4. Electoral Validation for Morales and the MAS (1999–2010) 5. The Bolivianisation of Washington–La Paz Relations: Evo Morales' Foreign Policy in Historical Context 6. Pachakuti in Bolivia, 2008–10: A Personal Diary
