The Maximum Program

(p.100) 8 APRA
The Socialist Impulse

Charles D. Ameringer

University Press of Florida

This chapter discusses the maximum program of APRA, which was most active during the periods of exile of Peru's socialists. This was principally because when Peruvian Aprista leaders were scattered throughout Latin America, they were engaged directly in its promotion. One familiar figure is discussed in this chapter: Víctor Raúl Haya de la Torre, who founded APRA in 1924. He intended for it to make new revolutions on the Mexican model, but his ambition to achieve this through a hemisphere-wide organization did not materialize. Instead, what developed were a series of Aprista-style parties that were bound by fraternal ties. One of these parties was the Peruvian Aprista Party, or PAP.
