9780822943365: Highland Indians and the State in Modern Ecuador (Pitt Latin American Series)

Highland Indians and the State in Modern Ecuador chronicles the changing forms of indigenous engagement with the Ecuadorian state since the early nineteenth century that, by the beginning of the twenty-first century, had facilitated the growth of the strongest unified indigenous movement in Latin America.

Built around nine case studies from nineteenth- and twentieth-century Ecuador, Highland Indians and the State in Modern Ecuador presents state formation as an uneven process, characterized by tensions and contradictions, in which Indians and other subalterns actively participated. It examines how indigenous peoples have attempted, sometimes successfully, to claim control over state formation in order to improve their relative position in society. The book concludes with four comparative essays that place indigenous organizational strategies in highland Ecuador within a larger Latin American historical context.

Highland Indians and the State in Modern Ecuador offers an interdisciplinary approach to the study of state formation that will be of interest to a broad range of scholars who study how subordinate groups participate in and contest state formation.

Review:

“An outstanding contribution . . . the most comprehensive and authoritative text available on the historical development and contemporary implications of Ecuador’s fascinating indigenous social movent.”
—Journal of Latin American Studies

”Succeeds on many levels. Any serious comparative inquiry into Latin America’s indigenous movements would be well served by this title. Ecuadorianist scholars concerned about politics, native peoples and the modern history of the nation will find this voume indispensable.”
—A Contra corriente

 



“Theoretically sophisticated yet highly accessible . . . helps us understand perhaps the region’s most successful indigenous movement within its historical and comparative context. It does this better than any other book currently available. Along the way, it offers a history of modern Ecuador that is compelling and a treatment of state formation that should be read by anyone interested in understanding postindependence in Latin America.”
—Hispanic American Historical Review
