The breadth of Peru's culture from pre-Columbian times to today is surveyed in this one-stop reference. Modern Peru emerges as an ethnically divided nation progressing toward social integration of its heavily Indian and Hispanic population. Ferreira and Dargent, native Peruvians, illustrate how the diverse geography of the country--the Andes, coast, and jungle--has also had a role in shaping cultural and social expression, from history to art.

Book News
Following the common format of the series, Ferreira (Spanish, U. of Oklahoma, US) and Dargent-Chamot (history, U. of Lima, Peru) concentrate on artistic activities in Peru, first providing contextual information related to Peru's history, politics, ethnic makeup, geography, and linguistics. They also provide chapters reviewing religion, religious celebrations, and social customs. The chapters on artistic cultural activities provide separate explorations of broadcasting and print media; literature; performing arts and cinema; and art, architecture, and photography.
