Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Two Republics to One Divided examines Peruandrsquo;s troubled transition from colonial viceroyalty to postcolonial republic from the local perspective of Andean peasant politics. Thurnerandrsquo;s reading of the Andean peasantryandrsquo;s engagement and disengagement with the postcolonial state challenges long-standing interpretations of Peruvian and modern Latin American history and casts a critical eye toward Creole and Eurocentric ideas about citizenship and nationalism.

Working within an innovative and panoramic historical and linguistic framework, Thurner examines the paradoxes of a resurgent Andean peasant republicanism during the mid-1800s and provides a critical revision of the meaning of republican Peruandrsquo;s bloodiest peasant insurgency, the Atusparia Uprising of 1885. Displacing ahistorical and nationalist readings of Inka or Andean continuity, and undermining the long-held notion that the colonial legacy is the dominant historical force shaping contemporary Andean reality, Thurner suggests that in Peru, the postcolonial legacy of Latin Americaandrsquo;s nation-founding nineteenth century transfigured, and ultimately reinvented, the colonial legacy in its own image.

About the Author

“Given its remarkable intellectual depth and range, this book will emerge as one of the most widely read and admired works in Andean studies and beyond. This is historical anthropology at its very best.”— Paul Gootenberg, State University of New York at Stony Brook
“Theoretically engaged and narratively engaging, this smartly crafted volume beams light into the darkest corners of 19th-century Andean historiography. In the process, Thurner provides one of the most provocative treatments of peasant political culture I’ve read in years.”—Gil Joseph, Yale University
