9780674368071: Upriver: The Turbulent Life and Times of an Amazonian People
Críticas:

A model of nuance and humility. [Brown] describes vividly the encroachments of modernity on the lives of the Awajuns, and their attempts to resist and survive as the Amazon is carved up for natural-resource extraction. But Brown is scrupulously unsentimental and resists the political pieties typical of Latin American ethnography, which so often treats indigenous people as victims or heroes. The result is a book with the fullness and texture of real human life; it is a masterpiece of social science.--Graeme Wood"Pacific Standard" (01/08/2015)"

Críticas:

"Upriver "explores Awajun ways of being indigenously off-modern with excruciating honesty about how the uncertainties of fieldwork challenge interpretation. Brown is one of the clearest writers and thinkers in anthropology today. This book is a pleasure to read.--Beth A. Conklin, author of "Consuming Grief: Compassionate Cannibalism in an Amazonian Society""

Descripción HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS, United States, 2014. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 208 x 142 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. In this remarkable story of one man s encounter with an indigenous people of Peru, Michael Brown guides his readers upriver into a contested zone of the Amazonian frontier, where more than 50,000 Awajun--renowned for their pugnacity and fierce independence--remain determined, against long odds, to live life on their own terms. When Brown took up residence with the Awajun in 1976, he knew little about them other than their ancestors reputation as fearsome headhunters. The fledgling anthropologist was immediately impressed by his hosts vivacity and resourcefulness. But eventually his investigations led him into darker corners of a world where murderous vendettas, fear of sorcery, and a shocking incidence of suicide were still common. Peru s Shining Path insurgency in the 1980s forced Brown to refocus his work elsewhere. Revisiting his field notes decades later, now with an older man s understanding of life s fragility, Brown saw a different story: a tribal society trying, and sometimes failing, to maintain order in the face of an expanding capitalist frontier. Curious about how the Awajun were faring, Brown returned to the site in 2012, where he found a people whose combative self-confidence had led them to the forefront of South America s struggle for indigenous rights. Written with insight, sensitivity, and humor, Upriver paints a vivid picture of a rapidly growing population that is refashioning its warrior tradition for the twenty-first century. Embracing literacy and digital technology, the Awajun are using hard-won political savvy to defend their rainforest home and right of self-determination. Nº de ref. de la librería AAS9780674368071
