CHOICE Review

Historian Becker (Truman State Univ.) debunks common wisdom concerning the origins and development of one of Latin America's most important contemporary indigenous movements. His book is particularly valuable for its attention to the leadership role of indigenous women, which most scholars have ignored, and the importance of alliances between rural-indigenous and urban-leftist activists. Compared with recent social science books on Ecuador's indigenous movements, such as Amalia Pallares's From Peasant Struggles to Indian Resistance (CH, Jun'03, 40-5975), Suzana Sawyer's Crude Chronicles (CH, Apr'05, 42-4812), and Melina Selverston-Scher's Ethnopolitics in Ecuador (2001), this volume is more historically grounded. It is the most comprehensive and insightful narrative available of the development of relations between a Latin American indigenous movement and the political Left. Easy to read and supplemented with extensive historical documentation, a chronology from colonial times to 2005, and many photographs. Summing Up: Highly recommended. General readers, undergraduates, and above. D. L. Van Cott University of Connecticut
