Ecuador is currently one of the major tourist destinations in the Americas, offering unparalleled colonial architecture, dramatic landscapes and the eco-tourist mecca of the Galapagos islands. But behind its colourful markets and mountain scenery lies a more complex country, divided by geography and race and facing serious environmental threat. With the rise of activism and the controversy surrounding the impact of oil companies in the Ecuadorian Amazon, this nation of eleven million faces an uncertain future. A legacy of military involvement and a volatile political culture make Ecuador one of the region's most fascinating nations. 'Ecuador In Focus' explores the history, people, politics, economy, environment and culture of this multifaceted country.
