This is an extremely informative book that tell of parts of Peru's history that you cannot find anywhere else. It is a more personal look at the country through literature, as well as documents.

Terrible book, nothing serious on it. I can tell they did not research seriously about what they wrote there. Many of the facts are false and give a wrong idea of the peruvian history. One book more for the garbage.
