9780292739505: A Future for Amazonia: Randy Borman and Cofan Environmental Politics
Críticas:

"It is a well-crafted and nicely combined account of an ethnographic study with the personal story of Randy Borman...it is a must read for all those who want to understand the ecological sustainability efforts of indigenous people around the world in general, and the success story of the Cofan in Amazonia in particular."--Navin Singh, Indigenous Peoples, Issues, and Resources "This unusual monograph has a brilliant story to tell: indigenous intelligence is alive and kicking, and the global ecological challenges the world faces at the dawn of the twenty-first century can be solved [...] we must thank Michael Cepek for an ethnography that not only sheds light on indigenous cultural resistance, but also allows us to imagine such questions." - Latin American Studies "A Future for Amazonia: Randy Borman and Cof'an Environmental Politics is a rich ethnography that is conscious and mindful of the intervention it is making in thehighly politicized milieu of anthropological work about Amazonian indigenous peoples." - American Anthropologist

Críticas:

Descripción University of Texas Press, United States, 2012. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. New.. 226 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Blending ethnography with a fascinating personal story, A Future for Amazonia is an account of a political movement that arose in the early 1990s in response to decades of attacks on the lands and peoples of eastern Ecuador, one of the world s most culturally and biologically diverse places. After generations of ruin at the hands of colonizing farmers, transnational oil companies, and Colombian armed factions, the indigenous Cofan people and their rain forest territory faced imminent jeopardy. In a surprising turn of events, the Cofan chose Randy Borman, a man of Euro-American descent, to lead their efforts to overcome the crisis that confronted them. Drawing on three years of ethnographic research, A Future for Amazonia begins by tracing the contours of Cofan society and Borman s place within it. Borman, a blue-eyed, white-skinned child of North American missionary-linguists, was raised in a Cofan community and gradually came to share the identity of his adoptive nation. He became a global media phenomenon and forged creative partnerships between Cofan communities, conservationist organizations, Western scientists, and the Ecuadorian state. The result was a collective mobilization that transformed the Cofan nation in unprecedented ways, providing them with political power, scientific expertise, and a new role as ambitious caretakers of more than one million acres of forest. Challenging simplistic notions of identity, indigeneity, and inevitable ecological destruction, A Future for Amazonia charts an inspiring course for environmental politics in the twenty-first century.
