More About This Title The Peruvian Revolution


The ideal of a republic, “the true Peru”, faithful to egalitarian values that had been disrespected since the emancipation before the Spanish Crown, was systematically embraced by Peruvian libertarian tendencies of Mariátegui and González Prada to the performance of the ‘Sendero Lumonoso’. Peru is a country that recognized not only the impressive historical and cultural heritage of the Incas, but which emancipated itself from the Criollo elitism, responsible for the marginalization of the overwhelming majority of the population, particularly the rural and indigenous segments. With almost no hiatus, the struggle to fulfill this dream crosses Peruvian history, from independence in 1821 to the present day.
