El Ecuador en la Historia: Jorge Nunez

El Ecuador en la Historia, by Jorge Nunez Sanchez, is a survey of national history from the pre-Columbian period to the modern nation-state, focusing more heavily on the twentieth century. The book sheds light on early indigenous protests of colonial rule, labor organization, and liberal reforms in the early twentieth century, as well as the decay of political institutions at the end of the twentieth century. Nunez Sanchez argues that neoliberal reforms dismantled important social programs that forced the nation’s poor to organize and demand popular change from Ecuador’s entrenched elite.
