Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ecuador is a nation of over 13 million people, its area between that of the states of Wyoming and Colorado. Like the United States, Ecuador's government features a democratically elected President serving for a four-year term. The Galápagos Islands, well known as the birthplace of Darwin's Theory of Evolution, are part of a province of Ecuador.

The History of Ecuador focuses primarily on the political history of Ecuador and how these past events impact the nation today. This text examines the traditions established by Ecuador's great caudillos (strong men) such as Juan José Flores, Gabriel García Moreno, and Eloy Alfaro, and documents the attempts of liberal leaders to modernize Ecuador by following the example of the United States. This book also discusses three economic booms in Ecuador's history: the Cacao Boom 1890-1914; the Banana Boom 1948-1960; and the Oil Boom 1972-1992.

Synopsis:

This handbook provides an unmatched, comprehensive political history of Ecuador written in English.

Synopsis:

• This text is the first general history of Ecuador available in English

• Serves as both an introduction to Ecuador for the general readee as well as a starting point for specialists researching more specific Ecuadorian topics

Synopsis:

• Presents biographical sketches of prominent figures in Ecuador's history

• Contains a chronology of the major events in Ecuador's political, economic, social, and cultural history

• Includes maps showing Ecuador as part of South America and displaying Ecuador's territorial disputes with Peru and Colombia

• Bibliography includes significant books on Ecuadorian history, economics, and current politics

• Glossary defines Spanish and Ecuadorian terms

Synopsis:

Who are the mestizo people? What was Ecuador's role in helping the Allied cause in World War II? What were the effects of the "encomienda" labor system? What do cacao (cocoa), bananas, and oil have in common? And after nearly 60 years of conflict and war, are relations between Ecuador and Peru truly at ease?
