dc.description.abstractThe history of Bolivia since the Chaco War (1932- 1935) has been characterized by an extensive amount of social upheaval. This period witnessed the formation of left-wing political parties whose agitation and revolutionary activity culminated in the revolution of 1952. The political party that benefitted most from this upheaval, and which assumed power in 1952, was the Movimiento Nacionalista Revolucionario (MR). After the successful revolt of April of that year, Victor Paz Estenssoro, leader of the MNR, became president of Bolivia. Under his guidance, the new government nationalized the largest tin mines, instituted an effective agrarian reform and passed a law of universal suffrage. Although a military sponsored coup d'etat deposed the MNR in 1964, the fundamental revision of Bolivian society was not altered.en_US
