2Title:  Making Machu Picchu: the politics of tourism in twentieth-century Peru   
 Creator:  Rice, Mark, active 2012- 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references (pages 207-223) and index. Speaking at a 1913 National Geographic Society gala, Hiram Bingham III, the American explorer celebrated for finding the "lost city" of the Andes two years earlier, suggested that Machu Picchu "is an awful name, but it is well worth remembering." Millions of travelers have since followed Bingham's advice. when Bingham first encountered Machu Picchu, the site was an obscure ruin. Now designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Machu Picchu is the focus of Peru's tourism economy. The author's history of Machu Picchu in the twentieth century - from its "discovery" to today's travel boom - reveals how Machu Picchu was transformed into both a global travel destination and a powerful symbol of the Peruvian nation. Te author shows how the growth of tourism at Machu Picchu swayed Peruvian leaders to celebrate Andean culture and compatible with their vision of a modernizing nation. Encompassing debates about nationalism, Indigenous peoples' experiences, and cultural policy - as well as development and globalization - the book explores the contradictions and ironies of Machu Picchu's transformation. On a broader level, it calls attention to the importance of tourism in the creation of national identity in Peru and Latin America as a whole.

10Title:  Cradle of gold: the story of Hiram Bingham, a real-life Indiana Jones, and the search for Machu Picchu   
 Creator:  Heaney, Christopher. 
 Publication:  Palgrave Macmillan, New York, 2010. 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references and index. "In 1911, a young Peruvian boy led an American explorer and Yale historian named Hiram Bingham into the ancient Incan citadel of Machu Picchu. Hidden amidst the breathtaking heights of the Andes, this settlement of temples, tombs and palaces was the Incas' greatest achievement. Tall, handsome, and sure of his destiny, Bingham believed that Machu Picchu was the Incas' final refuge, where they fled the Spanish Conquistadors. Bingham made Machu Picchu famous, and his dispatches from the jungle cast him as the swashbuckling hero romanticized today as a true Indiana Jones-like character. But his excavation of the site raised old specters of conquest and plunder, and met with an indigenous nationalism that changed the course of Peruvian history. Though Bingham successfully realized his dream of bringing Machu Picchu's treasure of skulls, bones and artifacts back to the United States, conflict between Yale and Peru persists through the present day over a simple question: Who owns Inca history? In this grand, sweeping narrative, Christopher Heaney takes the reader into the heart of Peru's past to relive the dramatic story of the final years of the Incan empire, the exhilarating recovery of their final cities and the thought-provoking fight over their future. Drawing on original research in untapped archives, Heaney vividly portrays both a stunning landscape and the complex history of a fascinating region that continues to inspire awe and controversy today"--Provided by publisher.
