Abstract

Three major political upheavals have occurred in Bolivia's recent history: (1) the nationalist revolution of 1952, led and directed by the Movimiento Nacional Revolucionario (MNR); (2) the 1964 military coup of General Barrientos; and (3) the October 1970 mass mobilization which defeated a military-rightist coup and put General Torres in power.
