Description - The Spirit of Regeneration by Frederique Apffel-Marglin

This volume assembles a selection of the work which a group of specialists of peasant background have initiated since 1987. Their starting point is that development itself is the problem because its epistemologies and practices are alien to the indigenous peasantry. Instead, they believe that the native cultural and agricultural systems in the Andes are very much alive, environmentally respectful, and embody a viable, even if totally different, mode of being and understanding from the industrial West. The contributors to this volume are all Peruvian researchers and graduates of PRATEC, the Andean Project for Peasant Technologies, a network working to revitalise Andan agriculture. They present different facets of this Andean worldview which, while able to absorb elements from other cultures, exists on its own terms and within its own ongoing cosmology.
