Great at what it does, but not a social history.

Herbert Klein's Bolivia offered the first modern historical survey in English of this important nation. It includes a completely new final chapter andan updated bibliography. Great at what it does, but not a social history. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 18 years ago. The subtitle of this book, "the evolution of a multi-ethnic society" led me to believe that this would be more of social history than it actually was.

This book represents a very conscientious work on the part of the author. In the past history of Bolivia was confined to bolivian authors who wrote at their convenience based mostly on the assumptions and not necessarily based on facts.

The Evolution of a Multi-Ethnic Society. The history of the peoples of Bolivia is one of the more complex and fascinating of historical evolutions. A society created by imperial conquests and native adaptations, it remains today a nation dominated by its peasantry, yet fully participating in the world economy. Series: Latin American Histories. This book represents a very conscientious work on the part of the author. The history of the peoples of Bolivia is one of the more complex and fascinating of historical evolutions

This book represents a very conscientious work on the part of the author. In the past history of Bolivia was confined to bolivian authors who wrote at their convenience based mostly on the assumptions and not necessarily based on facts. Their research was probably limited to verbal information gathered from older folks who had received those bits from older folks who assed on.

This book is clearly based on well researched facts gathered from sources outside Bolivia including libraries and government archives that are presently open to researchers. The result is a refreshing wind of information that one, as a bolivian, had not ever had the chance to know closer to the truth.

I am ever so glad the author went to the trouble of writing it. I for one will make a strong case for every Bolivian youth to read it.

Thank you, LFA

This is the most authoritative single book in existence on the history of Bolivia, read as such in Bolivia and the rest of the world. I have read this book three times. Each time I am deeply impressed at Klein's knowledge of the country. The book is well organized, readable, and comprehensive. You can find no better history of Bolivia.
