Mirages of Transition : the Peruvian Altiplano, 1780-1930

Jacobsen, Nils
 Berkeley :  University of California Press, 1993

"This case study of the Peruvian altiplano, combines economic and social analysis with cultural and institutional history. Nils Jacobsen challenges the prevailing view that the rural Andes underwent a successful transition to capitalism between the mid-nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. He argues that although the political, economic, and administrative structures of colonialism were gradually dismantled by the region's advancing market economy, colonial modes of constructing power and social identity have lingered on even to this day."Publisher's Description
