Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“This is a lively, original, and carefully researched study of the transformation of political cultures in highland Peru during and after the agrarian reform of the late 1960s. It makes an important contrubution to our understanding of the relationship between community and state in Latin America in general, and in the Andes in particular, by analyzing the ways in which law is translated at the local level.”—Joanne Rappaport, University of Maryland

“Between Reform and Revolution is much more than the standard ethnography. Rather, this is a wide-ranging discussion of the political currents that have reshaped Andean life. . . . Seligmanns account is richly textured, highly readable, balanced, and insightful. . . . Well worth reading both for the Peruvian as well as for those interested in issues of land tenure, political changes, and the peasantry.”—Journal of Developing Areas

Synopsis:

This is the story of one of the most ambitious agrarian reforms in Latin American history. The book argues that the economic, political, and cultural dynamics set in motion by the reforms are central to understanding the brutal civil war that ensued in Peru between the state and the Maoist-Leninist Shining Path guerilla movement.

Synopsis:

The reform programme introduced by Peruvian President General Juan Velasco Alvarado in 1969, a year after he seized power in a military coup, ushered in one of the most ambitious agrarian reforms in Latin America. This book argues that the economic, political, and cultural dynamics set in motion by the reforms are central to understanding the brutal civil war that ensued in Peru between the state and members of the Maoist-Leninist Shining Path guerrilla movement. Based on five years of fieldwork in the southern Andean district of Huanoquite, it portrays the extraordinary complexity of the lives of the Quechua-speaking peasants as they seek to shape their relationships to both the state and the Shining Path. The book also traces the ways in which memories and symbols of Inca, colonial, and modern national authority shape both peasant mobilisation and the rhetoric of the state.

Synopsis:

A study of the effects of agrarian reform and civil war on the lives and sense of identity of a Peruvian peasant community.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [245]-259) and index.
