The article discusses the polymorphic mixture of history, geography, and cultures in Peru. It traces the history of the defeat of grotesque Pol Pot-like movement called as Sendero Luminoso or Shining Path, and the end of the autocratic and abusive reign of Alberto Fujimori. It highlights the period, particularly in the early 1960s wherein a pattern of social good health has emerged through the establishment of the Popular Action party led by Fernando Belaunde Terry.
