Reader Reviews:


5/5 stars

an excellent introduction to Bolivian history (4/5 people found this helpful)

Our news organisations may seldom remind us of the fact, but there is a marvellous continent in our world called South America, where the landscape is breathtaking, the people warm-hearted and generous, and the history fascinating. One of its most remote countries is the jewel that is Bolivia: dramatic, vertiginous, colourful, and dynamic. For those who have awoken to this nation as a place to discover, this history offers a most readable account of Bolivia's history from the time of the Incas, through the plundering of its mineral riches by the Spanish, and on to the establishment of an independent republic and all the political tribulations that have ensued.
Klein clearly has a passion for his subject, and a thorough knowledge of Bolivian history. Moreover, he writes with a clarity of style and enables the reader to engage with the unfolding story that he has to tell. The best aspect for me was that whilst informing me of many fascinating aspects of Bolivian culture and history, he left me wanting to find out more.
I thoroughly recommend this book, but be warned: if you haven't already been to this special country, you will want to after reading Klein's book. And if, like me, you have had the good fortune to travel there, you will only wnat to return all the more.
