Rebirth of the Paraguayan Republic
The First Colorado Era, 1878-1904
A superb account of a nation almost literally climbing from the ashes. Quite simply, this is the first academic treatment of the era, because of the destruction, theft, 'misplacement' and 'protection' of much of the documentary material. . . . only one who truly understands the Paraguayan past and has worked in it for decades would even attempt the task. . . . An exceptional book.
