Peru: The Evolution of a Crisis

Synopsis

This book gives specialists and students alike a comprehensive political history of Peru that includes the first full-length treatment of the 1980s, a decade in which early optimism sparked by the return of democratic rule gave way to widespread pessimism amidst a full-blown social, economic, and political crisis. The study traces the growth of the Sendero Luminoso insurgency; the economic collapse that brought Peru hyperinflation coupled with its deepest depression of the 20th century; and the evolution of the electoral political system that brought Alberto Fujimori, a political novice, to the presidency in 1990.
