Before the Shining Path
Stanford University Press

This chapter examines the history of Ayacucho, Peru, under General Juan Velasco Alvarado's Revolutionary Government of the Armed Forces from 1968 to 1978. It explains that the military government introduced a series of progressive reforms but later on lost favor with the masses and Velasco was removed and replaced by General Francisco Morales Bermúdez in 1975. It discusses the slowing and reversal of the Velasco reforms during the second phase of the military government and considers the turn of Peru to electoral democracy in 1980.
