Description

The essays in Amazonia and the Andes focus on indigenous mediation of colonialism in Latin America.

There are also essays on cannibalism, Brazilian and Andean identity, and the "Ecological Indian" and a dramatic reevaluation of the authenticity of Fray Diego de Landa's writing on the Maya.Contibutors.

David Cahill, Mark Goodale, Edward O. Kohn, Frank Salomon, Fernando Santos-Granero
