Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The author contends that for 250 years, roughly from the 1720s to the 1970s, the sociocultural system of Peten endured with remarkable continuity, not in spite of the changes in the hinterland region but, to an important degree, because of them.

Book News Annotation:

Schwartz (anthropology, U. of Delaware) examines the social history of Peten, in the lowlands of Northern Guatemala, in the context of changing relationships between ecology and society, between state power and community culture, and among world economics, regional politics, and subregional sociocultural patterns.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [344]-360) and index.
