If you want to read about Peru, or to be an intelligent and informed visitor, this is an excellent introduction. It collects essays, folklore, poems, and newspaper articles to paint a word portrait of the country's history, culture and politics.
I used it to begin research for my next travel book!

Excellent collection of papers, excerpts from documents that would be hard to obtain for the average reader, and poetry too! The best presentation of ancient and contemporary perspectives on a culture that I have read in one book.
