BOLIVIA IN FOCUS

This new series of country guides is designed for travellers and students who want to understand the wider picture and build up an overall knowledge of a country. Each In Focus guide is a lively and thought-provoking introduction to the country's people, politics and culture.

The In Focus guides will brief you on:

The history: Conquest, life as a colony, quest for independence and the building of a modern nation. How history can help explain today's society and politics.

The people: Who lives where, how they live. The different worlds of the poor and the rich; blacks, Indians and whites; Arabs and Jews; indigenous, disenfranchised and dispossessed peoples; human rights.

The culture: What to read, what to see, what to hear. Who's who in literature, music, dance, theater and cinema. Roots and rites of different religions. Folk traditions and indigenous cultural celebrations.

The politics: Who runs the country, who wants to run the country. Power and conflict between political parties, the military, guerillas and grassroots organizations. Historical ties to the U.S.

The economy: What the country produces and exports, how the economy has developed, the impact of foreign debt and free market reforms, who gains and who loses, presence and role of U.S. corporations.

Where to go, what to see: Must-see landmarks, lists of monuments and historical sites as well as the author's expert tips on what to see and do to get the most out of a short trip to the country.

Plus...
-- Facts and figures
-- Chronology
-- Practical advice
-- Nontourist travel

-- Useful addresses
-- Color and b&w photos

Often caricatured in the U.S. as the landof coups and cocaine, Bolivia is a country full of rich traditions stemming from before the arrival of Columbus. In the most Indian of Latin American nations, pre-Conquest lifestyles, languages, and dress have adapted to survive centuries of oppression and forced labor in the silver and tin mines that dot the landscape.

Bolivia in Focus is an authoritative and up-to-date guide to this fascinating land. It explores the history, the politics and economy, the people and society, the culture and the media, and includes the author's tips on must-see sites and how to get the most out of a short trip.
