Book News Annotation:
Collier (anthropology, Stanford U.) has studied peasant agriculture in the highlands of southern Mexico since the early 1960s. Here, with the help of a journalist and a rural development specialist, he describes the changes in the economy that led to the 1994 uprising, and the nature and course of the rebellion. To the 1994 edition he has added a substantial epilogue bringing his account up to 1999, and a supplemental bibliography note.
