Before the Shining Path
Stanford University Press

This chapter examines the history of the Alianza Popular Revolucionaria Americana (APRA) in Ayacucho, Peru, in the 1930s. It traces the party's emergence and popularity in Carhuanca and highlights the support of the district's most powerful campesinos who connected the party's national discourses to their local struggles for political power and land. It explains that the party promised both socioeconomic justice and a national political transformation that would wrest power from the hands of the aristocracy and turn it over to the masses.

Keywords:   APRA, Ayacucho, Peru, Carhuanca, campesinos, political power, socioeconomic justice, political transformation, aristocracy
