New book released: The Lima Reader

UO History Professor Carlos Aguirre is the co-editor of The Lima Reader (Duke University Press, 2017).

“Carlos Aguirre and Charles F. Walker, two leading scholars of Peru, bring their vast expertise to decoding one of this hemisphere’s great cities. Lima is an intriguing, intimidating, pulsing tangle of a metropolis at the desert’s gray ocean edge. The Lima Reader is the single best book for anyone seeking to understand the city in the almost dizzying impossibility of its remarkable history and culture.”

– Orin Starn, coeditor of The Peru Reader
