"The Peru Reader is a joy both for Peru specialists and those seeking an introduction to the country's political and social development...It brings together in English a wide variety of texts, to provide a diversity of views of Peruvians (past and present) about their country, as well as foreign observers...The beauty [is] that the texts speak for themselves, reflecting a multiplicity of views." --John Crabtree, Journal of Latin American Studies "A livelier, more literate introduction to a foreign world could not be hoped for. A Peruvian trove, indeed; so much that one hardly knows where to begin dipping into its treasures."--Alma Guillermoprieto, author of Dancing with Cuba: A Memoir of the Revolution "This is an extremely deep, broad, and insightful collection on Peru."--Jorge Casteneda, author of Utopia Unarmed: The Latin American Left After the Cold War and former Foreign Minister of Mexico "One of the best overviews yet of Peruvian history and politics."--The Rough Guide to Peru "This is a great paperback to bring on the airplane or a long train ride, stuffed with an endlessly entertaining and eclectic collection of short stories, anthropological essays, translated chronicles, and a bit of poetry."--Moon Handbooks Peru "This anthology is a wonderful addition to any course on Latin America and Peru and is accessible to both graduates and undergraduates. I have used pieces from this book for my undergraduate courses and plan to incorporate at least one of the pieces new to this second edition into my courses in the near future. The book should also be of interest to nonacademics interested in learning more about Peru."--M. Cristina Alcalde, The Latin Americanist
