The end of the 20th and beginning of the 21st centuries have witnessed major reform within Bolivia: a democratic and economic resurgence, a more modern electoral system and dramatic technological and communications advances. Political slogans celebrate "Bolivia, la Nueva" (The New Bolivia). This work offers a comprehensive account of the history of Bolivia, from the time of the first ancient civilizations near the shores of Lake Titicaca to contemporary social and political developments. Bolivia's tangled and tumultous past, in which governments have seldom been stable for more than a few years, is presented in a readable narrative. Topics covered include: the culture and history of the largely indigenous Inian population; the challenges to nationhood presented by Bolivia's extremes of landscape and climate; the Andean drug war and economic development; Bolivia's vibrant human rights activist community; and the current political landscape in Bolivia.
