HISTORY OF BOLIVIA INTRODUCTION

The region now known as Bolivia had already been taken over 2,500 years when the Aymara arrived. However, present-day Aymara associate themselves with the ancient civilization of the Tiwanaku Empire which built its capital at Tiwanaku, in Western Bolivia. The capital city of Tiwanaku is found to be around as early as 1500 BC when it was a small, farming based village. According to early estimations, the city covered approximately 6.5 square kilometers (2.5 square miles) at its maximum extent and had between 15,000 and 30,000 living people.

GEOGRAPHY:

It has a geothermal field called Sol de Manana which means it is the morning sun in Spanish. The area, known by intense volcanic activity, with Sulphur spring fields and mud lakes, has indeed no geysers but rather holes that emit pressurized steam up to 50 meters high. Hence there was always a possibility of volcanic breakout in the area and so the inhabitants choose places away from the volcanic areas which were safe enough to reside and continue their life so on Bolivia is present in the central part of South America, between 57°26'–69°38'W and 9°38'–22°53'S. With an area of 1,098,581 square kilometers (424,164 sq. m), Bolivia is the world's 28th-largest country, and the fifth largest country in South America, extended from the Central Andes through parts of the Gran Chaco, Pantanal and going as far as to the Amazon.

ECONOMY:

Despite a series of major political setbacks, between 2006 and 2009 the Morales administration has spurred growth higher than at any point in the preceding 30 years. The growth was also followed by a moderate decrease in inequality.
