From Our Editors

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.
