520    Peru's promise and problems are explored. By any measure, 
       Peru is one of the world's most scenic, historic, 
       intriguing, and diverse countries. But in many ways, it 
       also is a very troubled land. Few countries have a greater
       potential for development than Peru, but the country 
       reflects a glorious and turbulent past and faces an 
       uncertain future. Peru's cultural history is as diverse 
       and fascinating as the country's natural landscapes. Since
       the conquest, Spaniards have dominated the country's 
       political, social, and economic institutions leading to an
       imbalance of power and opportunity between different 
       groups in the land. These problems spill over in political
       instability and terrorist activity and have had a negative
       impact on all Peruvians.
