In the central Andes of Peru, Ecuador, and Bolivia high mountains, deep valleys, and the seemingly inhospitable high grasslands-the stark punas-testify to the human capacity to occupy even the most extreme environments. Alpine and subtropical climates are traversed in a day's walk over often precipitous foot and animal paths. Inca and pre-Inca ruins attest to the long domination of the peasant by early states. Spectacular terraces sculpted into the mountains demonstrate the centrality of farming.

Boulder: Wesrview Press, 2002. Here we discuss how the Andean camelid herders of Sajama National Park in highland Bolivia rely on both the ayllu and family-level decision-making to manage their pastoralist landscapes, including their bofedales. Using a rights mapping methodology, we describe how water and wetlands are managed, and determine which decisions are taken at the community level and which are made at the family level.

The Articulated Peasant is therefore noteworthy as a sustained examination of household economies through changing historical circumstances, while considering also the relationship of the environment to systems of land use, agricultural production, and economic exchange among ecological zones. Though the volume stresses the Andean context, its relevancy is wider.

Based on Enrique Mayer's 30 years of research in Peru, this collection of new and revised essays presents in one accessible volume Mayer's most significant statements on Andean peasant economies from pre-colonial times to the present. As a result, The Articulated Peasant is noteworthy as a sustained examination of household economies as the author explains the relationship of the household and the village community to the Andean mountain environment through systems of land use and agricultural production within changing historical circumstances. Though the volume stresses the Andean context, its relevancy is wider. It will resonate with those who are struggling with issues of survival and development in Latin America or elsewhere where units of production and consumption are largely household based.

Made-with-Love
Eight months of the year I live in Andes, in small farming community, three hours from Cusco, Peru. I sought-out this text to enrich my historical and ethnographical understanding of Peru, but after plowing through professor Mayer's erudite monograph on Andean peasant economies I came away with little practical knowledge that would help better understand the campesinas in my community.

That is not to say that Professor Mayer work is not valuable. The text provides a quantitative and empirical study of Andean households as economic agents, and for social science theorists, those in academia and upper division students of Andean studies `The Articulated Peasant' will be essential reading. There is a short Spanish/Quechua glossary, a good index and ample biography.

After reading countless amounts of history and background on certain issues in the Andes, I foudn this book to include new information and different views on highly debated issues. Very insightful and informative. A good anthro book!
