About this product
- DescriptionScholars from Anthropology, History, and Literary and Cultural Studies present their current research on culture and violence in the Andean region. Within an interdisciplinary approach, the contributors to this volume explore the complex and mutually constitutive relationship of culture and violence in Peru and Bolivia, countries with large indigeus populations who have largely preserved their culture and way of life in spite of centuries of colonial domination and the encroachment of capitalist modernization, including its latest free-market variant. The intertwined histories of culture and violence in the Andes are examined through analyses of the indigeus and popular mobilization that brought Evo Morales to power as Bolivias first indigeus president, conservative Latin American intellectuals' response to this popular rejection of neoliberal ecomic and social policies, the work of Peru's Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the legacy of the Shining Path war, and nineteenth-century intellectual and political discourses on race, gender, and the incorporation of indigeus peoples into the nation-state.
