This is a collection of speeches of the author who is a member of the left wing of the Bolivian MNR. Most of these speeches were made in the Bolivian legislature in the late 1950’s. It is an interesting if not valuable book because it defines clearly the thinking of the majority section of the MNR, now over a decade in power. It shows the innate anti-Americanism and the constant courting of Marxism as well as the Machiavellian flexibility of the MNR. The book has historical value.
