Written with a precise and clear style, with a look that is both analytical and emotional, Sociology of Lima allows us to get to know the small worlds (the grocery store, the club, the artisan workshop) of a city that is transitioning to the modern, as well as also to the world of the street, a reality that is both open (for men) and closed (for women), with its corners and squares populated by bums and beggars.

A city where, despite the progress made, people get sick and die in a high percentage. It is also spiritually ill, which is why, as Capelo says, the sanitary measures were not enough and an ethical-political solution was required that included a transformation that individuals and the social classes that inhabited it must exert on themselves. For this reason, Joaquín Capelo's book is familiar to us and is undoubtedly a source of inspiration for the present.
