The History of Ecuador: George Lauderbaugh

George Lauderbaugh’s The History of Ecuador is a general survey of the country from pre-Colombian times to the present. In addition to biographical sketches of illustrious Ecuadorians, he focuses on three economic booms since 1890, the cacao boom of 1890—1914, the banana boom between 1948—1960, and the oil boom from 1970—1992.
