Description
This land of colorful cultures and stunning landscapes offers the curious visitor and student an unending stream of extraordinary things. From a fantastic archeological record to llama fetuses in the Witch's Market, from the coca story to the hemisphere's first indigenous president, the history and cultures of Bolivia is an eye-opening experience.But behind its breathtaking scenery and welcoming culture lies a more complex country facing serious political instability and environmental threat. Bolivia in Focus helps the traveler who aspires to be well-informed to understand the wider picture and build up an overall knowledge of the country. It also gives the reader a thought-provoking introduction to the sources of tension in Bolivia, the poorest country in South America, and the people's struggle for social justice that has been missing since the arrival of colonialism five hundred years ago.Bolivia in Focus is an authoritative and up-to-date guide to this captivating country. It explores the land and people, history, economy, politics, society, culture and religion, and includes the author's tips on must-see landmarks and historical sites and how to get the most out of a brief visit.
