In important ways, the United States government's approach to the administration of Peruvian president Alberto Fujimori (1990–2000) epitomized the shortcomings of U.S. policy. This chapter presents a life sketch of Fujimori and his legacy. This book describes President Alejandro Toledo's domestic and foreign policy initiatives. The book is a case study of a one-term administration in a single country and it is an investigation which may have wide implications for other Latin America states. This chapter also presents the organization of the book with a brief synopsis of each chapter.

Keywords: Alberto Fujimori; U.S. policy; Peru; Alejandro Toledo; foreign policy; administration; public financing
