Lecture presented by Dr. David Scott Palmer, professor of Political Science and International Relations at Boston University. Q&A to follow.

Peru is an extraordinary country with big challenges. Parties are now little more than personal vehicles. The coast booms while the highlands lag behind. Indigenous groups mount scores of protests over mining company pollution. Shining Path, a guerilla force, is back in different and more complex forms. What does Peru's complex and checkered history tell us about its ability to overcome such challenges and maintain its current economic and political success?Join the Albuquerque International Association (A(A) for this topical and interesting lecture.
