Description - The Articulated Peasant by Enrique Mayer

The Articulated Peasant presents an overview of Enrique Mayers foundational contribution to an understanding of peasant economies in the Andes from Inca times to the present, stressing the underlying basic elements that define a peasant economy within a changing cultural context of the Inca and colonial tributary economy to todays neo-liberal market dominated economies.. Based on Enrique Mayers 30 years of research in Peru, this collection of new and revised essays presents in one accessible volume Mayers most significant statements on Andean peasant economies from pre-colonial times to the present. As a result, The Articulated Peasant is noteworthy as a sustained examination of household economies as the author explains the relationship of the household and the village community to the Andean mountain environment through systems of land use and agricultural production within changing historical circumstances. Though the volume stresses the Andean context, its relevancy is wider. It will resonate with those who are struggling with issues of survival and development in Latin America or elsewhere where units of production and consumption are largely household based.
