Synopsis: Formerly the seat of several prominent Andean civilizations, Peru has a remarkably rich history but has experienced economic problems and sporadic violence since 1980. A strong player in illegal drug trafficking, it is frequently portrayed by the media in a negative light, but with a recently reinvigorated economy and decreased unemployment rate, the country may be well on its way to restoring the social and cultural institution it once was. From the first civilizations established on the slopes of the Andes around the second millennium BCE through the most recent social unrest and political developments - A Brief History of Peru provides a concise yet comprehensive narrative of Peruvian history. Beginning with the accomplishments of early civilizations that culminated in the great inca Empire of the 14th to 16th centuries, the narration continues with the Spanish conquest and colonization, the country's independence in 1821, and the election of centrist leader Alejandro Toledo as president in June 2001. Clearly written and easy to understand, A Brief History of Peru is perfect for anyone interested in a closer look at the intriguing history of this country.
