A comparative examination of ethnic and gender policies in Peru demonstrates the profound difficulties posed for governments which attempt to develop policies to alleviate inequity. Bourque contrasts civilian and military regimes from 1963 to 1980, in the areas of agrarian and educational reform, and discusses government attempts to reduce inequity between the sexes. Both gender and ethnicity prove to be inadequate bases for public policy, however, for rather different reasons. Economic constraints severely restrict the impact of both types of policy, but the unanticipated consequences of reform efforts suggest more extensive long-term change.
