About this product
- DescriptionThe election of the Movimiento al Socialismo (MAS, movement towards socialism) to power in Bolivia in 2006 marked a historic break from centuries of foreign domination and indigeus marginalisation. Evo Morales, leader of the MAS, became the first indigeus president of Bolivia. Kepa Artaraz looks at the attempt to 'refound the nation' which the new government has made as its goal. He shows how the mix of Marxism, indigeus liberation politics, anti-imperialism and environmentalism has made Bolivia one of the most interesting and unique political experiments of Latin America's 'red decade'. As the historic left-turn in Latin America reaches a crossroads, Bolivia: Refounding the Nation guides us through the politics and ideas which have animated this popular movement, drawing out important lessons for progressive politics everywhere.
- Author BiographyKepa Artaraz is a lecturer at the University of Brighton where he teaches global social policy and politics. He is the author of Cuba and Western Intellectuals since 1959 (2009).
