Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this powerful anthropological study of a Bolivian tin mining town, Nash explores the influence of modern industrialization on the traditional culture of Quechua-and-Aymara-speaking Indians.

Review:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [339]-349) and index.
