Why does one society survive, while others perish?. Peter Elsass has been studying cultures in Columbia and Venezuela since 1973. Elsass also describes the Colombian village, Chemescua, the Maroons (a society emerging from slaves), and even the population of Jonestown before its mass suicide, showing how by taking a stand against foreign influences minority cultures can maintain their cultural integrity.
