Including Amazonian rainforests, Andean peaks, coastal lowlands, and the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador's geography is notably diverse. So too are its history, culture, and politics, all of which are examined from many different perspectives inThe Ecuador Reader. This rich anthology covers the years prior to the arrival of the Spanish in the early 1500s to the present, addressing colonialism, independence, the nation's integration into the world economy, and its tumultuous twentieth century. Interspersed among forty-eight written selections are more than three dozen images.The voices and creations of Ecuadorian politicians, writers, artists, scholars, activists, and journalists fill theReader, from Velasco Ibarra, the nation's ultimate populist and five-time President, to Pancho Jaime, a political satirist; from Julio Jaramillo, a popular twentieth-century singer to anonymous indigenous women artists who produced ceramics in the 1500s; from the poems of Afro-Ecuadorians, to the fiction of vanguardist Pablo Palacio, to a recipe for traditional Quiteo-style shrimp. TheReaderincludes an interview with Nina Pacari, the first indigenous woman elected to Ecuador's national assembly, and a reflection on how to balance tourism with the protection of the Galapagos Islands' magnificent ecosystem. Complementing selections by Ecuadorians, many never before published in English, are samples of some of the best writing on Ecuador by outsiders, including an account of how an indigenous group with non-Inca origins came to see themselves as definitively Incan, an exploration of the fascination with the Andes from the 1700s to the present, chronicles of the less-than-exemplary behaviour of U.S. corporations in Ecuador, an examination of Ecuadorians' overseas migration, and a look at the controversy surrounding the selection of the first black Miss Ecuador.
