980 Summer 2020 The War of the South Pacific, 1879-1884: Impact over Current Events
Thursday, 11:50–1:15, July 16
Instructor: Roland G. Estrada

The War of the Pacific involved three countries: Chile, Bolivia, and Peru. It was fought over dominance of the southern Pacific Ocean and the control over minerals that were needed for explosives and other war-making materials. Chile was the clear winner when it overcame the alliance between Peru and Bolivia. The effects of the war are still felt today, mostly in the isolation of Bolivia and the exploitation of minerals, especially lithium. This presentation will address current politics of all three countries.
Roland G. Estrada is a graduate of The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC, specializing in international affairs, and Rutgers University in New Jersey.
