Chapter Summary

In addition to his role as Evo Morales's vice-president and 'co-pilot', Álvaro García Linera is one of Bolivia's foremost intellectuals. Perhaps García Linera's most significant political-ideological evolution is his shift from his 'autonomist' positions to an almost Hegelian defence of the state as a synthesis of the 'general will'. The book can be read in several ways. On one hand, it is a sort of intellectual biography of the Bolivian vice-president. But, on the other hand, and even more importantly, the selection of articles helps to understand the sociopolitical changes (analysed theoretically and sociologically) and the political future of Bolivia in the twenty-first century, at the same time that it allows glimpses of the ideological debates that run through its rich national political history. The history of a country that, to paraphrase James Dunkerley, carries rebellion in its blood.
