Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the minimum program of APRA and the instrument for carrying out this program, which was the Peruvian Aprista Party (PAP). As part of the APRA, Víctor Raúl Haya de la Torre set forth a program that was influenced by his experiences in exile in Mexico and Germany. He relied heavily on the principles of the Mexican Revolution in the areas of land, labor, and natural resources. It is stated in the chapter that Haya was generally frustrated in his attempts to advance the minimum program during the Bustamante presidency, but during his last few years he relaxed his control over the PAP and began grooming his successor.
