CHOICE Review

Anthropologist Mitchell (Monmouth Univ.) from 1965 to 2004 conducted 10 seasons of ethnographic fieldwork on residents of San Pedro, Ayacucho, Peru. Consequently, his volume has particular power, as the study reflects the work of one researcher on a single group for essentially an entire four-decade career. Both the ethnographic methodology and the topic are time-transgressive. Early chapters utilize the synthetic techniques of the 1960s; later chapters use the single agent-oriented dialogue approach of the 1990s. The book provides an excellent story of the impact of combined violence from the Shining Path guerillas, peasant militias, and government forces upon the rural highland villagers in the 1980s-90s. Not only will the book be useful for all students of Latin American anthropology and history, but it will also have value for researchers trying to follow the impact of current conflicts on the constituent peoples around the world. Good glossary, 40 miscellaneous photographs, and adequate index (14 pages) and bibliography (16 pages), although sources lack page numbers. ^BSumming Up: Recommended. All levels/libraries. D. L.
