Peruvian Democracy Under Economic Stress: An Account of the Belaunde Administration, 1963-1968

By Pedro-Pablo Kuczynski

Princeton University Press, 1977, 308 pp.

A former economic advisor to the Peruvian government and manager of the Central Reserve Bank analyzes developmental, tax and fiscal problems in the pre-Velasco decade. The treatment is competent, the style civilized and entertaining, the prose mercifully free of jargon.
